A list of Isaac Asimov's 506 books arranged by his own categories as in his autobiographies, though later books have been added. 1 Pebble in the Sky (Doubleday 1950). 4 Foundation (Gnome Press 1951). 5 David Starr, Space Ranger (Doubleday 1952). 6 Foundation and Empire (Gnome Press 1952). 7 The Currents of Space (Doubleday 1952). 9 Second Foundation (Gnome Press 1953). 10 Lucky Starr and the Pirates of the Asteroids (Doubleday 1953).

This was to be illuminated by the science of psychohistory, which Campbell and I thrashed out between us. On August 11, 1941, therefore, I began the story of that interregnum and called it "Foundation. In it, I described how the psychohistorian, Hari Seldon, established a pair of Foundations at opposite ends of the Universe under such circumstances as to make sure that the forces of history would bring about the second Empire after one thousand years instead of the thirty thousand that would be required otherwise.

There are 2 versions of this book. One has the 2 books listed above. The other, the one listed by my seller, has the Foundation Trilogy, 2 of the first 3 Asimov Books and I Robot. It is in faux leather special edition state with no dust jacket issued. The 2 volume set is a regular hardback (I got the 2 volume one by mistake from another site) with originally a dust jacket. Since my aim is to have all Asimov science fiction in hardback, the 6 volume set is more desirable. Look closely or ask. If it is a 6 volume set at a reasonable price, snap it up. If the 2 volume set is what you desire it is a bargain for 2 novels....shu

I read Foundation and I Robot decades ago. I wanted a copy for our family library. I read it again. I ordered the complete Foundation series and I robot but was sent the wrong book so I was able to keep this one for free. If you can get the COMPLETE Foundation series and I, Robot get that one.

Foundation is the first part of Isaac Asmov epic series about the death of the Galactic empire and the reforming of another. The first part of the series is in this book. We see the galactic empire headquartered in the galactic center. It is bloated and slowly perishing. A scientist shows that the empire will be destroyed in 500 years and is exiled with his following to Terminus a small world with no important natural resources on the very outskirts of the galaxy to write The Encyclopedia Galactica( the accumulation of all mans knowledge). It was thought it would take 30,000 years to rebuild the empire but by saving the knowledge it would only take one thousand years. Not! Encyclopedia Galactica was all a smokescreen. The real reason Dr. Seldon WANTED himself and his followers exiled was a start of a new empire even though it will take a thousand years. Fascinating account of the Foundation, atomic power, massive spacecraft and the traders of the galaxy. An epic first part story of the Foundation Series. If you have not read the Foundation Series you missed a classic sci fi epic.

I, Robot is another classic epic. It has been made into a motion picture.

A reporter is taking stories from robot psychiatrist Dr. Susan Calvin from U.S. Robotics. Isaac Asimov gives the 3 laws of Robotics that all robots made by U.S. Robotics. They are....

1. A robot may not injure a human being, or through inaction allow a human being to be hurt. 2. A robot must obey human commands except if conflicts with law 1. 3. A robot must protect itself as long as no conflict with law1 and 2. ( Law 1 is to be supreme).

However, different robots have problems interpreting when the laws should be done. Dr. Susan Calvin tells about robot Robbie a early teenagers playmate and friend, about mining robots on planet Mercury, about mining robots on the asteroids, a lying robot named Herbie,and about giant robot brains that help develop interstellar warp drive. Finally huge multi regional machines that all the earth's regions ( 4 giant world centers...nations taken over) that ensure world peace, greater crop production, efficiency for the good of earth's people. ????? Another great classic book by the master Issac Asimov.

5 stars and great for anyone's family library.
