Foundation's Edge: The Foundation Novelsby Isaac Asimov
Synopses & Reviews
At last, the costly and bitter war between the two Foundations had come to an end. The scientists of the First Foundation had proved victorious; and now they retum to Hari Seldons long-established plan to build a new Empire that the Second Foundation is not destroyed after all-and that its still-defiant survivors are preparing their revenge. Now the two exiled citizens of the Foundation-a renegade Councilman and the doddering historian-set out in search of the mythical planet Earth. . .and proof that the Second Foundation still exists. Meanwhile someone-or something-outside of both Foundations sees to be orchestrating events to suit its own ominous purpose. Soon representatives of both the First and Second Foundations will find themselves racing toward a mysterious world called Gaia and a final shocking destiny at the very end of the universe!
"This book, while self-contained, is a continuation of the Foundation trilogy, which is made up of three books: Foundation, Foundation and empire, and Second foundation"--Afterword.
As the long and bitter war between the two Foundations comes to an end, interplanetary intrigue, hyperspace pursuit, and future technology combine with a desperate search for the planet Earth. Reissue.
