The Foundation Series is a series of science-fiction novellas and novels first written by the American science-fiction writer Isaac Asimov. The first of the Foundation stories appeared in John W. Campbell's "Astounding Science Fiction" in 1942. Although the initial stories were all written as stand-alone efforts, they were later compiled into collections published as novels. The series won a one-time Hugo Award in 1966 as being the greatest science-fiction series of all time. The original novellas were collected as "The Foundation Trilogy" starting in 1951. Asimov continued the series, beginning with "Foundations Edge" in 1982. Since Asimov's death in 1992, the series has been continued by authors such as Gregory Benford, Greg Bear, and David Brin.
