The First Galactic Empire had endured for tens of thousands of years.
May contain spoilers
Ten months earlier, the First Speaker had viewed those same crowding stars - nowhere as crowded as at the center of that huge cluster of matter Man calls the Galaxy - with misgivings; but now there was a somber satisfaction on the round and ruddy face of  Preem Palver - First Speaker.

From the YouTube description:

The third Foundation novel in the series. The two novellas were originally published in 1948 and 1949 but the book was printed in 1953.  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

follows the Seldon Plan after the First Empire's defeat and describes its greatest threat - the gowth of a dangerous mutant.  This mutant strain has gone wild, producing a mind capable of bending men's wills, directing their thoughts, reshaping their desires, and dstroying the universe.  SECOND FOUNDATION completes the most famous series of novels in all of science fiction by one many critics consider our greatest science-fiction writer, ISAAC ASIMOV.

  • 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.
