Wit, wisdom, and an uncanny sense of wonder have become the bestselling trademarks of grandmaster Isaac Asimov. Each of his works has marked a new milestone in science fiction literature. But none has shaped the very future of science fiction more than his Foundation Series. Beginning with the phenomenal 'Foundation' and continuing with 'Foundation and Empire', 'Second Foundation', 'Foundation's Edge', and 'Foundation and Earth', this monumental and classic saga already has sold well over six million copies. Now, in an anxiously awaited publishing event. Isaac Asimov, once again fashions science fiction's future by going back to when it all began...presenting the overture to the greatest SF series of all time, the newest Foundation book, "Prelude To Foundation."
Isaac Asimov is America's most prolific author, with over 365 published books (as of 1988) to his credit. His "Foundation Trilogy" was given a special Hugo Award as Best All-Time Science Series, and 'Foundation's Edge" won a Hugo for Best Science Fiction Novel of 1982.
