Of all the writers I consider good, none write 'Sci-Fi'. The problem is with Sci-Fi is that too often writers think like Aasimov, and the dialog, the characters have no importance, you skip through pages without remembering dialogs or character devellopment, merely themes and ideas.

And this, I cannot stand; a novel being reduced to a single idea. Of course the plot is sometimes strong and driving, but it is not enough.

In considering Asimov's work, I'd have to say that that is true of it.

To me.. Sci-Fi isn't the idea. It's more or less the setting. Not to use a SHAMELESS plug, but when I wrote Isolation, I decided to use a character based story in a sci-fi setting. You can easily switch out the time period and location to anything you wish. Another example is Ben Bova's Jupiter. The setting is Science Fiction, but the plot isn't. You can substitute the station orbiting Jupiter Grant Archer is at and make it a research hospital in Georgia. You can change the New Morality and whatever puppet space program that was in the story for a Baptist Church and a small town government. You can of course write a story based on science fiction alone, not primarily focusing on the characters though. It's just a writer's preference.
