I, Asimov Index, Part 1

Isaac Asimov wrote two volumes of Autobiography, culminating with the year 1979. And these books have an index!

He had intended to write a third book, after 20 years or so had passed, but by the time those years had passed, he was deathly ill with AIDS (brought on by a tainted blood transfusion) and could not do so.

He had written a series of memoirs - which merely expanded on things he'd said in his biographies, but this time, revealing more of his inner thoughts.

This book was publshed as I. Asimov, and it has no index.

So, I'm going to make an index for it - dealing with the hardcover version, and I'll share it here. (Eventually I'll turn it into an alphabetical PDF which people can dowload.)
