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.
