Introduction

The Asimov Foundation College (AFC) provides an introductory approach to the science fiction novels that feature the Foundation series as created by author Isaac Asimov and continued through works approved by the Asimov estate. Never read the Foundation novels? No problem. These courses provide an excellent opportunity to gain easy exposure to the entire series without reading the novels. Although, we do hope you will enjoy Foundation and wish to immerse yourself in the books.

Begin with an overview of the series with TFS-101 - Foundation Overview, and then work your way through ten novels. Twenty-five questions with multiple-choice answers and a list of references for researching the answers make the courses user-friendly.
