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

this book the first part is easily understood, but i'm having trouble with the second part The Gods Themselves. the most confusing thing about it is the sexes, i can't figure out what is what and which is which. For example is the center one also called emotional and soft ones? What? i don't get these parts because they call themselves different names each time, sometimes parental as refer to tritt.i think the names given out to the sexes are too confusing. Can someone clear this out for me and sent me maybe a plot also identifieing the sexes and what each are called?

Man!! I was just looking for a review and now I ended up knowing Who is the mule and where is the second foundation, I must say you should be more carefull in the future. This just vanish any trail of surprise in the next 200 pages.
But it's in fact a very fine d. book.

He seems to have had a love for Sci-Fi. What did he like so much about writing Sci-Fi and about weird technological items?
