Doubleday started an ambitious project of collecting all of Asimov's short fiction between covers in 1990, with two volumes, containing 86 stories out of a total of 383. Broadway Books (New York) reissued those two volumes in 2001. My question is, what are the reasons why more volumes containing the rest of Asimov's Short Stories are not being published? Surely the publishers can't have lost faith in his unflagging popularity? Thanks.

    I don't think a reason was made known, so we can only speculate. Perhaps the sales figures for the first two volumes were lower than expected and the publisher thought publishing further volumes would not be profitable. – Ubik Apr 7 at 21:12
