Any planet is Earth to those that live on it – Pebble in the Sky review by Sigfrid

Pebble In The Sky is a charming yet mediocre example of golden age sci fi, with a swashbuckling story and an unusually everyday protagonist. The main group of characters are all unlikely heroes - a tailor, an archaeologist, a scientist and his daughter. Part of the charm was Asimov's recognition in the epilogue that he had misunderstood the nature of radiation when writing, rendering the book largely impossible with hindsight.
