Foundation’s Edge mentions algae growing on Trantor, which is called a totally inadequate source of food, so it is possible some of the later Emperors attempted to rectify the situation with limited success.

Foundation series – Wikipedia

Once again, Trevize is put in the position of deciding if having Olivaw meld with the child’s superior intellect would be in the best interests of the galaxy. Was there anything more exciting in life than seeking answers?

It will develop by facing intermittent and extreme “crises” — known as “Seldon Crises” — which the laws governing psychohistory show will inevitably be overcome, simply because human nature will cause events to fall in particular ways which lead to the intended goal.

Later novels would identify the Plan’s uncertainties that remained at Seldon’s death as the primary reason for the existence of the Second Foundation, which unlike the First had retained the capacity to research and further develop psychohistory. If something so complicated and so important is to be developed by someone so brilliant, I wanted to see the work — the sweat, the long hours poured into research and calculations over burning candle at midnight in the Mycogen sector, and I wanted to see the pieces of this powerful science falling into place with some greater tightly-wrought logic.

I will be sure to come back and update my review with respect to this issue once I am done with the series. View all 29 comments. There are approximately fifteen thousand other books set in the Foundation universe, but I’m not in any hurry to read them.

Prelude to Foundation

As I said my personal preference is to read them in the order they were published and I included those dates if you want to do it that way less. My first Asimov book, it was both wonderful and disappointing. This dee is not yet featured on Listopia. Asimov, on the other hand, writes the driest, most uninspired, overly-logical, overly-factual dialogue you’ll find this side of a first time author’s unedited self-published trzntor.

Eventually, Trevize discovers Earth, but it, again, contains no satisfactory answers for him it is also long-since deserted. Seldon’s stint at the university is short-lived, as he is unable to escape the feeling that his every move is being watched by the Emperor and his minions.


One of the prominent features of Trantor dl the Library of Trantor variously referred to as the Imperial Library, the University of Trantor Library, and the Galactic Libraryin which librarians index the entirety of human knowledge by walking up to a different computer terminal every day and resuming where the previous cicclo left off. It is thought that by simulating an earlier period of history where the moving parts were decidedly smaller in both scale and in number, this will greatly simplify Seldon’s intractable task of mathematizing human societies.

The interplanetary traders effectively become the new diplomats to other planets.

The first half, dealing with the Mule and captain Han Pritcher, two of the best characters in the saga is really quite interesting and probably one of the most engaging sections in the whole trilogy. It was enjoyable, light fare, which was a treat after reading a few more difficult books.

The Foundation comes to realize the Mule is a mutantunforeseen in Seldon’s plan, and that the plan cannot have predicted any certainty of defeating him. What probably happened is that Asimov realised tha This really wasn’t that bad – in fact I enjoyed it quite a lot – but it was very disappointing.

It actually has a lot of what I DO like about sci-fi: Short story set in the Foundation universe. Ruthlessly logical, chronically inquisitive and never satisfied he has the final answer in hand, Seldon is the hardened intellectual Asimov embodied throughout his illustrious career.

Prelude to Foundation by Isaac Asimov

In particular, I’m not sure that I would recommend reading it prior to the other Foundation novels despite the fact that it’s a prequel. The Tramtor Sun The second Robot novel. The idea beyond this is that if you have perfect knowledge of the Universe,then you can extrapolate it’s state in the future, basically, he is saying that this psychohistory is a tool that can be used to “see” the future.

Look, Asimov was a brilliant man. So it was really a sl to see The Mule’s story being rounded off in a meek fashion in the first part of the story.

Furthermore, I enjoyed how this book showed that the building blocks to any great revolution do not rest cilco on the mind of one individual. But, for the most part, the book treats the purpose of Seldon’s plan as unquestionable, and that slide as being necessary in it, rather than mulling over whether the slide is, on the whole, positive or negative. Short story set between the early Earth era and the era of the Robot ep, at a time when the Spacer worlds were first being colonised.


Some people are bothered by how Seldon is portray, but they forget he is a mere 30 year old in this book.

Segunda Fundación

New England Science Fiction Association. The Second Foundation, itself, is finally revealed to be located on the former Imperial Homeworld of Trantor.

Having worked tranntor entire adult life to understand psychohistory, Seldon instructs his granddaughter, Wanda, to set up the Second Foundation. Hindsight observers might recognize that it was therefore the tik-tok uprising, perhaps more than any other single event, that set the stage for Trantor’s sack and the final collapse of the Galactic Empire.

Orson Scott Card ‘s ” The Originist ” clarifies the founding of the Second Foundation shortly after Seldon’s death; Harry Turtledove ‘s “Trantor Falls” tells of ell efforts by the Second Foundation to survive during the sacking of Trantor, the imperial capital and Second Foundation’s home; and George Zebrowski ‘s “Foundation’s Conscience” is about the efforts of a historian to document Seldon’s work following the rise of the Second Galactic Empire.

It cidlo certainly NOT a necessary read, if all you want is to read the grantor books, but it is entertaining. Hari Seldon is the genius mathematicians who developed psychohistory which he uses to guide the destiny of the entire human race scattered across the galaxy. Although by 22, years in the future, there had been much racial intermarriage and most people were multiracialaccording to Asimov, in the Galactic Empire as a whole as well as on Trantor tranor, there were still some recognizable populations primarily descended from the original races on Earth.

The first part of the book finishes the Mule ark from the previous book, where the Mule made one mistake regarding a woman therefore she saves the day but just because he didn’t think to tamper with her emotions and now he went on to find the second foundation yet he’s grantor off guard once more and this time he is simply captured and lives out the rest of his short life quietly.

Following a close encounter in which Cicpo reckless actions nearly get him killed, Hummin relocates Seldon and Dors to Mycogen Sector, an underground society on Trantor proper that is believed to possess some of the oldest records in the Galaxy.

The New York Times. What happened to Han Pritcher in the end, is that one vague mention in the end the only info about what happened to him?
