Isaac Asimov interviewed by Bruce Coville

I’ve been digitizing some of the old cassettes in the SFOHA (Science Fiction Oral History Association) archive. I digitized an interview with Isaac Asimov from 1983. On the cassette case, scratchily written was “interviewed conducted by Bruce Coville“. I knew of a Bruce Coville who is a popular YA author and founder of Full Cast Audio. Could it be the same person? I sent an email to Bruce, and sure enough it is he. And he kindly granted SFOHA permission to post it online. The recording was to be transcribed to print, and it was recorded on a little recorder. The sound is okay considering all that. Isaac is little hard to hear sometimes, but overall quite understandable. So here it is:

This was an interview for a magazine that was conducted in Isaac Asimov’s New York apartment. Interestingly it was conducted by popular YA author, Bruce Coville in 1983 when he was … well, not as well known. Also taking part in the interview is photographer Bettina Cirone.
