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.

FOUNDATION'S END?

Centuries after the fall of the First Galactic Empire, Mankind's destiny lay in the hands of Golan Trevize, former Councilman of the First Foundation.  Reluctantly he chose the mental unity of Galaxia as the only alternative to a future of unending chaos.

But Mankind as massmind was not an idea Trevize was comfortable with.  So he journeyed in search of humanity's legendary home, fabled Earth, hoping there to find a solution to the dilemma.

Yet Earth had been lost for thousands of years, and no one could say exactly where it was or if, indeed, it existed at all.  More important, Trevize suspected he might not like the answers he found there...

FOUNDATION - THE BEGINNING

Wisdom, wit, and an uncanny sense of wonder have become the trademarks of grand master Isaac Asimov.  Now, in an eagerly awaited publishing event, Asimov once again fashions the future of science fiction by going back to the beginning - presenting the overture to the greatest SF series of all time....

PRELUDE TO FOUNDATION

Is is the year 12,020 G.E. and Emperor Cleon I sits uneasily on the Imperial throne of Trantor.  Here in the great multidomed capitol of the Galactic Empire, forty billion people have created a civilization of unimaginable technology and cultural complexity.  Yet Cleon knowns there are those who would see him fall - those whom he would destroy if only he could read the future.

Hari Seldon has come to Trantor to deliver his paper on psychohistory, his remarkable theory of prediction.  Little does the young Outworld mathematician know that he has already sealed his fate and the fate of humanity.  For Hari possesses the prophetic power that makes him the most wanted man in the Empire... the man who holds the key to the future - an apocalyptic power to be known forever after as the Foundation.
