9780061056383: Foundation's Fear (Second Foundation Trilogy)

Taking up where original author Asimov left off, Benford continues the Foundation series. Hari Seldon is close to perfecting his theory of Psychohistory, and is a reluctant candidate for the position of First Minister. But there is considerable, and dangerous opposition.

Review:

This is the first instalment of The Second Foundation Trilogy, based on Isaac Asimov's famous Foundation series. Acclaimed hard science fiction writers Gregory Benford, David Brin and Greg Bear will each produce a work for the trilogy. Benford kicks off exploring the beginnings of the Foundation itself and its creator, Hari Seldon. Seldon is working on a project to ease the inevitable collapse of the universe- spanning Empire and the Dark Ages that will ensue. But the current emperor has other plans, like appointing Seldon first minister and thus thrusting him into a world of political intrigues and assassination attempts that ultimately will bring him up against future history's greatest threat.

Review:

In 1942, Isaac Asimov began the Foundation series, and the future took shape. It was a story we could walk into. Now it's time to take another step ( John Clute)

This is the first instalment of The Second Foundation Trilogy, based on Isaac Asimov's famous Foundation series. Acclaimed hard science fiction writers Gregory Benford, David Brin and Greg Bear will each produce a work for the trilogy. Benford kicks off ( AMAZON.CO.UK REVIEW)

Book Description HarperCollins Publishers Inc, United States, 2000. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Reprint. 170 x 107 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. With the permission - and blessing - of the Asimov estate, three of today s bestselling SF writers, Gregory Benford, Greg Bear, and David Brin, have conspired (like the original Foundation!) to complete the epic saga the beloved Grand Master left unfinished. The Second Foundation Trilogy begins with Gregory Benford s Foundation s Fear, a voyage to the very beginnings of the enterprise itself and of its mysterious founder. Hari Seldon wanted nothing more than to be a mathist, absorbed in the cool precision of numbers. But fate - and a cruel Emperor s arbitrary power - thrust him into the First Ministership of the Empire against his will. As the story opens, Hari is about to leave his quiet professorship and take on the all but impossible task of governing twenty-five million inhabited worlds from the all-steel planet of Trantor. With the help of his beautiful bio-engineered wife Dors and his protege Yugo, Seldon is still developing the science that will transform history, never dreaming that it will ultimately put him against future history s most awesome threat.
