While "working" diligently today at my place of employment, I've been
searching the internet for any evidence that connects Isaac Asimov to the
B.O.O.K. article. I found a couple of different versions of the article
Daryl posted, but none credited to Asimov. However, on one site, at, they gave credit for their article to
Punch Magazine. "Reproduced by kind permission of Punch Magazine Ltd. from
an article by R.G. Heathorn which originally appeared on 9th May 1962."

All in all, a productive day's work, I'd say.
