If you have any respect for your readers you will remove the last couple sentences of the "Foundation and Empire" summary. You were not even considerate enough to warn of spoilers. And in the course of two small sentences you have ruined the 3rd book of the trilogy for prospective readers by blatantly spelling out the location of the second Foundation. This is a book summary for the second book in the series, not the 3rd. I don't care how relevant you thought that detail was. It was opinion, and had no place in that summary. Get your act together and have a care!

I am Sachin Mathur. I like the books of Isaac Asimov. These profoundly good books, great books and glorious books are the best of books for reading. I enjoyed reading these Foundation Trilogy Saga books at Damascus Library. I got the books from Damascus Library, I mean. The fanatastic stories of Isaac Asimov gripping you and your attention to every line and every word with a story of a good book set in the futuristic setting FOUNDATION AND TRANTOR with all the worlds of Foundation1, Foundation 2, and Foundation3 in order only to save the lives of the people of the Cleon Kingdom and Earth with the migration to and fro from Earth to Foundation and Trantor by Cleon, their leader, from the Mule, who I love to read about in Foundation Series, and I also say it took since 1992 to come up with this sentance and description and message that I love to read the book Foundation and the Foudation Series, to say Isaac Asimov is the best Science Fiction Author of All Time and the best in academics with also a special best in academics with the subjects Physics, English, Mathematics, Psychohistorian Psycohistory, Psycohistory, Academicians, Psychohistory Academicians, Organic Chemistry, Chemistry, Anatomy, Histology, Physiology, Genetics, Bacteriology, Research Methodology, and Biochemistry. This author exells in descriptive descriptions of technology and technological descriptions and is excellent in physics. This author wrote Foundation with a highest level of success in Physics, all subjects, and Biochemistry. I love writing books myself and this one is just a love to read and write this message about on a message board. Congratulations, you are the best, highest, and smartest!

the last time I read Isaac Asimov was in 2001 and there is a short story I'm trying to remember the title of-
the plot: a scientist builds a robot and is too shy to tell the woman he loves that he loves her; the robot calls the woman on the phone when the scientist is not around, and arranges for the woman and scientist to go on a date.
Do you have any ideas for which of his stories this may be?
Thanks in advance!

I this supposed to be a review? Reviews I'm familiar with provide a critique of the author and their material. This was just a few paragraphs about the story.

im doing a power point research presentation for my english project and i also had to read a book of his (I,Robot), i personally didnt like his books very much. his 3 laws were great but the over all book i thought wasnt very good because in I,Robot it was just composed of many short stories and in which you never get to know your main character(or any character in that case) very well. without being able 2 know much about ur character it makes the story less interesting, more confusing, and very boring to read...

I'm not sure about y'all...but I would love to see Peter Jackson get his teeth into the Foundation stories. It could give him 30 years of gainful employment and because of the gaps in time periods he wouldn't be locked into a small number of actors. He could work on on non-Foundation projects like the Robot novels at the same time. He did such a great job bringing Tolkein to life that I'm willing to bet he is the only guy around capable of doing Asimov justice.

My first time here. A sfi-fi fan friend suggested I wrie here and let you all know that I have a 1st edition I, ROBOT up for auction on eBay. It is quite rare and I thought someone might be interested. My selling name on eBay is cyberdealing. Thank you!

It happened to me to read this awesome book, Conversations with God (by Neale Donald Walsch), and I suggest you all to read it! Really, it is something you shouldn't miss out! Now why am I talking about such a book on a website that deals with sci-fi? Well, for a science fiction fan, there are some very interesting parts in it about what is usually considered sci-fi literature (even though they're not seen as sci-fi here) and then there is a very interesting part that really reminds of what Asimov called Gaia in this book! I know you might wonder: what does Asimov have to do with this book? Well, it's almost as if he was really inspired and hit the spot when he made up Gaia and the group consciousness. I don't want to anticipate too many things, but this book (aside from Asimov and sci-fi in general) is too important not to be known by everyone!

Yeah, ive been searching all over the place for info on the movies. Heres what Ive got:
Writer: Jeff Vintar
Producer: Shekar Kapur (sp?)
company: 20th Century Fox
Writing began: Mid-Late 2004
The movies will focus more on the last 2 books than the first one.
Who do you guys think theyll choose to play some of the main characters?

i've read that they are going to do two movies covering the original trilogy; hopefully, they are successfull, so that they can then do a prelude to foundation(with maybe incorporating some more elements from forward the foundation), and then I just finished reading Foundations Edge and found it to be just as good as the original foundation book(I didn't really like the whole mule thing, but this book makes him a lot more interesting), so i'm hoping for a movie on foundations edge and then foundation and earth.
the future is bright!

The Second Foundation is on Trantor. Try Anacreon as a third name.

Hi, I am a network supervisor. I have named my two servers Trantor and Terminus. I am now adding a third server and I would like to stick to my theme.
What is the name of the planet the the second foundation is no.

Yeah, i did really like the foundation trilogy (even though i kind of prefer the additional foundation novels Asimov wrote in the 80's). The whole Asimovian saga (starting from The complete robot, then the robot novels, the empire trilogy and the foundation series) is a very good one to read. Maybe the only weakness of this saga is the empire trilogy: these novels are very slightly connected with each other and both their plot and their style is pretty rough (short for Pebble in the sky, which i really liked).

The Foundation Trilogy is my all-time favorite book. I even wrote a short story based on it this year.
posts on 8/22/2005 8:04:22 PM
Can anyone tell me what are the additional books to Asimov's series? I mean, those books written by other sf writers that fit in the same universe of the robot series, the empire trilogy and the foundation series? As a matter of fact, i know some of these additional series, such as the robot city series, the robots and aliens series, the robots in time series,the caliban trilogy, Mark Tiedemann trilogy, the second foundation trilogy and this book Psychohistorical crisis by Kingsbury. i'd want to know if there's some other books besides them.

The book series is terrific and I'm so excited about the 'Narnia' movie coming out this December, especially after hearing the Radio Theatre versions of 'Narnia'. Anyone heard of it? This team of producers spent six years creating audio dramas of all seven 'Chronicles of Narnia'.
Audio Dramas are like movies that play in your mind -- they get dozens of actors together to record different characters, a composer does an original music score, then they add sound effects like dragons flying and Aslan's roar (where did they get these sounds anyway?)
The combination of the voices, music and sound design is totally amazing. It's like being in 'Narnia'. Because they stayed so close to the books, Narnia fans should really check out these authentic versions of C.S. Lewis' work before going to see the Walden/Disney film. Just my opinion.
Here's something cool I found out: Radio Theatre is sponsoring a booth at several music festivals this summer! You can get a CD sampler of the 'Narnia' dramas and I think they're doing giveaways too (?) These are the dates I heard:
June 28-July 1 - Creation East in PA
July 1 - Celebrate Freedom in Dallas, TX
July 27-31 - Creation West in George, WA
July 31-Aug. 3 - Kingdom Bound at Six Flags Darien Lake, NY state
