About the Author

Isaac Asimov began his Foundation series at the age of 21, not realizing that it would one day be considered a cornerstone of science fiction. During his legendary career, Asimov penned over 400 books on subjects ranging from science to Shakespeare to history, though he was most loved for his award-winning science fiction sagas. Asimov entertained and educated readers of all ages for close to five decades, until he died, at the age of 72, in April 1992.

Why Science Fiction? Because like all truly excellent science fiction, everything here started out in somebody's imagination. After all, truly good science fiction in time becomes science fact.This is basically a collection of short essays, so even those who have trouble with any kind of textbook (which is what, for all intents and purposes, this is) should be able to enjoy and learn.
