Looking for 2 Asimov stories....

Can anyone help? I'm looking for 2 stories from about 1989 to about 1995.

1. The story takes place in Calumet, Indiana. It is a criminal wasteland (unlike what it is today ), and a man is pursued by gangsters.

2. The story takes place in dear old Birmingham, Alabama. It seems sort of like some deranged city planner is living atop our collosol statue, Vulcan.

Any ideas? THANKS!!

Wikipedia has a list of his short stories.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of...y_Isaac_Asimov

Maybe if you saw the title you would recognize it.

Thanks guys, but I wasn't clear enough in the original post. They weren't written by Asimov, but were published in the magazine, Asimov's. I almost think one may have been written by Feist.

Also Jenkin's Spoiler-Laden Guide to Asimov has a summary of many short stories:

Oops. I posted again before refreshing the page and seeing your post.

Locus magazine online has a database of magazines and contents. Also which anthologies contain the story.
