EtA: I've never read anything from other authors set in the Asimov's universe, so I have no opinion on them.
Roger MacBride Allen's Caliban trilogy is fantastic.

Robot City/Robots and Aliens -- I loved these when I was thirteen. That's probably the best thing I can say about them.

Robots In Time -- Dire.

Mark Teidemann's trilogy -- A sequel to Robot City, but it seems to have been written by someone who never read Asimov because he truly misunderstands the Spacers.

I have not read Have Robot Will Travel nor the recent Susan Calvin novel.

And Foundation's Friends is worth it for Orson Scott Card's "The Originist." The rest of the book is pretty bland.
The Turtledove story with the Sacking of Trantor was pretty good too.
