I should probably have used the title ‘How to read Isaac Asimov’s Robot, Empire and foundation series?’ but I didn’t want to make a title that was just too long. I know, I will start to work on a design more in accordance with the demand of the site soon. For now, let’s talk about the great Isaac Asimov and some of his most famous work.
What is the Foundation Series?
The original Foundation Trilogy is one of the must celebrated work in science-fiction. Originally, it was a series of eight short stories published in Astounding Magazine in the 1940s. Everything starts in a future where the mathematician Hari Seldon has developed the concept of psychohistory that he used to predict the future, but only on a large scale.
He foresees the fall of the Galactic Empire and, to ensure a favorable future for humanity, he gathers talented minds to basically become the foundation for a new society. Soon, they found themselves facing hard choices that will determine the future or the end of Mankind. Asimov says that when he wrote ‘Foundation’, he had no idea that he had begun a series of stories. After the original Trilogy, he wrote new books and extended the universe with connections to the Robot Series and the Empire Series.
