In 1942 he published the first of his Foundation stories—later collected in the Foundation Trilogy: Foundation (1951), Foundation and Empire (1952), and Second Foundation (1953)—which recount the collapse and rebirth of a vast interstellar empire in a universe of the future. Taken together, they are his most famous work of science fiction, along with the Robot Series. Many years later, he continued the series with Foundation's Edge (1982) and Foundation and Earth (1986), and then went back to before the original trilogy with Prelude to Foundation (1988) and Forward the Foundation (1992). The series features his fictional science of Psychohistory in which the future course of the history of large populations can be predicted.

I walked into work a few months ago all tired and sleepy. She asks "what have you been partying all night?" And I said "no I was up reading a book...I just couldnt put it down" I told her I was reading the prelude to foundation, by Isaac Asimov
and the first thing she says...( So tasteless) is "oh yea I know him, he was an ***hole"
Its a small world after all!

Have you people gone mad? their names were not mentioned due to their popularity, but lets face it, no one comes close. Maybe Asimov.
