About Gnome Press:
Gnome Press was an American small-press publishing company primarily known for publishing many science fiction classics.
Gnome Press did not have much capital or access to distribution facilities. The company was notorious for not paying their writers royalties due. Asimov claimed he was never paid for the publication of the Foundation books, and called Greenberg "an outright crook". Asimov and other authors were able eventually to repossess the rights to their publications, and the company failed during 1962.
