Both Foundation and I, Robot would fall in that category, as does Cities in Flight. I read a few of the stories here, but lost interest. Blish also adapted all of Star Trek TOS episodes for print (they were all short story length), and one ST novel, which AFAIK included the first use of the word "tachyon" in the Trekverse.]
