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.

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
