Science Fiction Classic #3--"Profession" by Isaac Asimov

Science Fiction Classic #3--"Profession" by Isaac Asimov

For the third Science Fiction classic, I have chosen a great story by one of the Grand Masters of Science Fiction, Isaac Asimov:

“Profession"—Isaac Asimov (first published in Astounding Science Fiction, July 1957)

They were handed little slips of paper which they were told must remain with them. George stared at his curiously. Little black marks of different shapes. He knew it to be printing but how could anyone make words out of it? He couldn’t imagine.

You can read this story in Asimov’s collection of his own Science Fiction stories, “Nine Tomorrows: Tales of the Near Future” published by Doubleday & Company in 1959.

If you’re enjoying this series of Science Fiction short story excerpts, I urge you to leave a few comments to let me know. If there is something particular you would like to see as a part of this series, please let me know. Also, don’t forget to subscribe to The Sci-Fi Dude update list, using the form on the right, and/or the RSS feed so you’ll be the first to know when a new entry is posted.
