Asimov writes:
"He [Cliff Simak] died on April 25, 1988 at the age of 84. Heinlein, however, died less than two weeks later, so that Simak's death was relegated to second place in the minds of most science fiction readers. I felt bad about this, for although Heinlein was the more successful writer, I could not help but feel Cliff was the better man."
