Asimov in Popular Culture

The Daily Maverick, a website out of South Africa, has an article about the billing crisis of the capital city of that country, Johannesburg.

Here's how the author starts his story:
It would take Stephen King’s sense of the macabre, Isaac Asimov’s sense of the impossible, Terry Pratchett’s sense of the utterly ludicrous – all lightly garnished with Franz Kafka’s sense of humour and served up by John Cleese – to create a scenario quite as bizarre as the billing system of Africa’s economic powerhouse city. Yes, Johannesburg. By STEPHEN GROOTES.

Joburg's billing crisis: The horror. The horror.
