From the YouTube description:

Second of the Foundation novels, it was published in1952 and the stories this book is derived from were printed in 1945. This is narration is of an omnibus version that has the first 3 books. This isn't my favorite narration of the novel but for consistency sake the first 3 in the Foundation series will be read by Jack Fox.

FOUNDATION
AND EMPIRE

tells the incredible story of a new breed of man who creates a new force for galactic government.  Thus, the FOUNDATION hurtles into conflict with  the decadent, decrepit First Empire.  In this struggle for power amid the chaos of the stars, man stands at the threshold of a new, enlightened life which could easily be put aside for the olf forces of barbarism.  The FOUNDATION novels of Isaac Asimov constitute what is very likely the most famed epic in all of science-fiction.

  • I try to maintain page numbers for audiobooks even though obviously there aren't any. I do this to keep track of pages read and I try to use the Kindle version page numbers for this.
  • Synopses marked with an asterisk (*) were generated by an AI. There aren't a lot since this is an iffy way to do it - AI seems to make stuff up.
  • When specific publication dates are unknown (ie prefixed with a "Cir"), I try to get the publication date that is closest to the specific printing that I can.
  • When listing chapters, I only list chapters relevant to the story. I will usually leave off Author Notes, Indices, Acknowledgements, etc unless they are relevant to the story or the book is non-fiction.
  • Page numbers on this site are for the end of the main story. I normally do not include appendices, extra material, and other miscellaneous stuff at the end of the book in the page count.
