Universe 1 edited by Terry Carr, Ace Books, 1971..

Universe was a series of seventeen annual science fiction anthologies edited by Terry Carr. It was initially published in paperback by Ace Books (1971–1972), with subsequent volumes published in hardcover by Random House (1973–1975) and Doubleday (1976–1987) and paperback by Popular Library, Zebra Books and Tor, successively. The last two volumes were issued in hardcover only. British hardcover editions were published by Dennis Dobson (1971–1979) and Robert Hale (1982–1983).

Each annual volume consisted of original science fiction stories commissioned for the series, a number of which went on to win awards and become genre classics. During its period of publication it was an important venue for original short fiction in the field. Carr usually reprinted at least one selection from Universe in his Best Science Fiction of the Year anthology for the year following the one in which it had appeared in Universe.

in the 1990s, the series was briefly revived, with an additional three volumes edited by Robert Silverberg and Karen Haber.
