Оказывается, Spell My Name with an S story was inspired by Asimov's frustration with the frequent misspelling of his name as "Azimov".

Но, спрашивается, почему?
Азимов ведь Azimov?

Incidentally, Isaac Asimov's original name in the Cyrillic alphabet was "Исаак Оссимов" and pronounced quite differently from how the American public and he himself pronounced it during his lifetime. Now in Russia, translations of his works use the spelling of "Айзек Азимов" to better convey the American English phonetics, out of the respect for the author.

Английская вики -Isaac Asimov (/ˈaɪzᵻk ˈæzᵻmɒv/; born Isaak Ozimov; c. January 2, 1920 – April 6, 1992)

Русская вики -А́йзек Ази́мов (Isaac Asimov, имя при рождении Исаáк Ю́дович Ази́мов; 2 января 1920 года, Петровичи, Шумячский район, Смоленская область, РСФСР — 6 апреля 1992 года, Нью-Йорк, США)
