The Foundation Trilogy book. CHAPTER ONE The Foundation Trilogy By Isaac Asimov. INTRODUCTION: In my life, there have been three science fiction books/series that will always hold special shelf space in my heart’s library. Yet, before I begin my history with this extraordinary story, let me briefly mention my other two great loves.

The Foundation series is a science fiction book series written by American author Isaac Asimov. First collected in 1951, for thirty years the series was a trilogy: Foundation, Foundation and Empire, and Second Foundation. It won the one-time Hugo Award for "Best All-Time Series" in 1966. Asimov began adding new volumes in 1981, with two sequels: Foundation's Edge and Foundation and Earth, and two prequels: Prelude to Foundation, Forward the Foundation.

The foundation trilogy. Any money that was involved was paid to Gnome Press and I didn't see much of that. And yet there was some foreign interest.

Isaac Asimov was not only one of the most important writers in science fiction, he was one of the best and brightest people ever. Asimov’s Foundation trilogy was the pivotal touchstone in my life in creative fiction

Isaac Asimov was not only one of the most important writers in science fiction, he was one of the best and brightest people ever. Read I, Robot to see this sparkling genius at his best. Asimov served wondrous meals-of-the-mind to a civilization that was starved for clear thinking about the future. Asimov’s Foundation trilogy was the pivotal touchstone in my life in creative fiction. His vision and scope spanned the galaxy across eons and at the same time he told deeply personal stories of living characters. The writer I am sprang from the boy that these books touched back then. They continue to move me still.

A transcript of the BBC's radio adaptation of The foundation trilogy.
  • This trilogy has an unassailable place as one of the best, if not the very best series in science fiction. I would give five stars for the novels itself. However, this review is to make others aware that the fifth printing is missing two pages, and this problem is fixed in the sixth printing. As these are the only two versions I've seen, I cannot speak to the printings before 5th or after 6th (if there are any).

    The missing content happens on page 454, where the fifth printing cuts to the Fourth Interlude abruptly after the “you have eaten?” question. See photos for comparisons of the two editions.

  • the 1983 leatherbound gilded edition is wonderful, I have bought 2 copies, one to replace the third I stole from my father, and one for myself. I still have the first one which was separating from the spine from wear. I regularly re-read the entire collection, and consider it my most valued possession, regardless of its monetary value. As always Asimov blends hope with realism as he explores humanity and its possible course of future history. The only negative about this book is that it shows what a piece of crap movie will smith's "I, Robot" really was.

  • I read this back in the 1960s, and was swept away by Asimov's tale of a failing galactic empire, and the science of psycho-history. I've heard rumors that Roland Emmerich (the man responsible for the Godzilla & Independence Day movies) has a film version of this book in the works, ([....]), so I thought I'd re-visit the book before Mr. Emmerich does.

    After a half century, this is still a great read, although the dialog is a bit more stilted and some of the characters are more one-dimensional than I remembered. I've found that much of the science fiction that I adored as a young man has not aged well - at least, not for me - because so much of it was originally written for a pulp fiction audience. But unlike many science fiction writers, Asimov was influenced less by other producers of sf, and more by books like the Rise and Fall of the Roman Empire; consequently the reader is in for a much more thought provoking ride with this book than he is with much of what passes for science fiction today.

    Michael Dirda's introduction to the Everyman's Library edition explains the genesis of this story in a way that made it even more interesting. If you've never read this, be sure you do *before* you go to see Emmerich's movie.

  • This is an amazing trilogy and everyone should read it. Mainly for this reason, everyone has taken Lord of the Rings and DUNE and told those stories over and over again a thousand different ways. For some reason, even though these books are 40 years old, they are still fresh. They are different, and they are great.

    Don't read books 4-6 though. They are not original. The author himself admitted he tried to write three books, but his publisher pushed him to write more. Let it stop where Asimov himself tried to stop. You'll thank yourself for it later.

  • I read the reviews on how this series was a seminal work in science fiction but I did not fully understand those simple words and I will go further and say that not only is this a Sci-Fi masterpiece but I believe it transcends its genre and gives a treatise on the socioeconomic development of nations and just should be labeled a literary Masterpiece that goes well beyond the 50s future tech that almost seems irrelevant compared to the other plot developments that Dr. Asimov conceived. This book should be required reading for all human beings (maybe even read it to your dog) and you would forever be missing something in your soul if you pass on the opportunity of reading this book.

  • This is a very nice binding of this trilogy. The quality of the book is incredibly high for the low price. There is an introduction in the beginning that covers a LOT of the build-up in Asimov's career that leads to this trilogy as well as a cool timeline that shows other interesting events that occurred during Asimov's life. The ribbon bookmark could use with some way of fusing the ends, as they are fraying already, but honestly, this is probably the nicest book on my shelf.

  • I read this trilogy when I was a teenager and loved it. All that I remembered when I ordered a copy recently was something about a character called the "Mule" and a musical instrument he played that caused hallucinations in the listeners.

    I'm almost 60 now, and I still think this is a classic trilogy, but I didn't love it like I did when I was a kid. It's tedious in many ways, overly long at times, and the characters don't seem real to me with the exceptions of 3 women in an otherwise nearly all-male cast story. I am glad I reread it, however, but I can't say I'd recommend it to anyone except hardcore Asimov and/or sci-fi fans.

  • I like getting hardback Trillogy copies of the stories I love and hope to hand down to my children. This is one of them, but I forgot there are 5-6 books to really fully tell this story, if you forgot that little tidbit like I did, go find the other books to add to your order as well, otherwise, this is a great story if you havn't read it.

    Far future with stellar travel and a concept by one of the great scifi writers (Azimov - I Robot) telling an all to probably future for human kind which seems to apply today already.
