No work of science fiction in the twentieth century captured the imagination of so many readers as the epic future history put forth in the stories and novels of Isaac Asimov.
In this volume, a select group of the Good Doctor's fellow writers explore his astonishing creation from their own unique perspectives―and offer personal tributes to the late, great Asimov some years after his death.
Foundation's Friends features contributions by Ben Bova, L. Sprague de Camp, Frederik Pohl, Carl Sagan, Harry Turtledove, and others.

Edited by the late MARTIN H. GREENBERG, Foundation's Friends honors SF writer Isaac Asimov with an anthology of short stories set in Asimov's universes. This collection includes contributions from Ray Bradbury, Robert Silverberg, Frederik Pohl, Poul Anderson, Orson Scott Card, and others.From Publishers Weekly:
Subtitled "Stories in Honor of Isaac Asimov," this pleasant anthology of new stories celebrates Asimov's 50 years of writing SF. Seventeen authors explore the people, places and ideas Asimov has made famous, albeit in their own styles. Robots circumvent, enhance or expound upon the Three Laws of Robotics, a la Robert Sheckley, Harry Harrison (in a Stainless Steel Rat adventure) and Connie Willis, who puts Asimov himself into a "Dilemma." Mike Resnick reveals an introspective Susan Calvin; George Alec Effinger sends a Jewish American Princess to see "Nightfall," Edward D. Hoch visits the Black Widowers, and Orson Scott Card looks at Hari Seldon and the start of the Second Fundation. Frederik Pohl's "The Reunion at the Mile-High" is a charming and unexpected tale of the 50th reunion of the Futurians, Asimov and Pohl included, in an alternate-world 1989.
