Some cracking books here from Isaac Asimov for 99p each in kindle edition.

Description
WINNER OF THE HUGO AWARD FOR BEST ALL-TIME SERIES

The Foundation series is Isaac Asimov’s iconic masterpiece. Unfolding against the backdrop of a crumbling Galactic Empire, the story of Hari Seldon’s two Foundations is a lasting testament to an extraordinary imagination, one whose unprecedented scale shaped science fiction as we know it today.

The Galactic Empire has prospered for twelve thousand years. Nobody suspects that the heart of the thriving Empire is rotten, until psychohistorian Hari Seldon uses his new science to foresee its terrible fate.

Exiled to the desolate planet Terminus, Seldon establishes a colony of the greatest minds in the Empire, a Foundation which holds the key to changing the fate of the galaxy.

Ah... proper SF! Classic stuff from the days when I was a kid and my mum would trawl the charity shops and bring home anything with a Chris Foss cover.
The Foundation series is a stunningly good read. Highly recommended!

Many thanks for the heads up op. Purchased all 3 foundation books.
Foundation and Robot sagas are both fantastic. Never was a big reader but these hooked me in. Amazing to see they influence in so many other sci-fi books and films.
Brilliant books! Just read that Apple are turning it into a mini series.
A good day for kindle! Just wish the complete robot series was on sale too
Super, dropped to £2.99 only recently and was tempted then. This is the time to buy if you ever want these Kindle books.
For those that dont know. iRobot is set in the same Universe as the Foundation Series. If you want to know how good this is. The Foundation Series beat Tolkens Lord of the Rings to the prestigious Hugo Award in 1966
Asimov's stuff is wonderful. One of the great Sci Fi masters along with Poul Anderson, Larry Niven, Robert Silverberg, (Who also did a fantastic NON fiction on Ghost Towns of the Old West - brilliant reading and rare - but Ive got one !) Robert Heinlein, and a later addition, Harry Turtledove.

No mention of Philip K Dick despite your name!

Okay he's different, not hard sci fi, but a classic.
Amazed "The Rest Of The Robots" isn't available on Kindle. Its as good as I, Robot

Not a great fan to be honest, but certainly up there with the best and most original, certainly
I read those books about 30 years ago. I've recently been thinking about re-reading so this is perfect timing.
Dumb question. What's the order of the foundation books? When would you recommend irobot. After the first foundation book or after all three?

I've read and reread these books several times over the last 40 or so years. Highly recommended and some of the greatest writing ever.

aahh...caves of steel, my first intro to the Asimov universe.

Currents of space still makes me mull over some of the storyline..but the Mule in Hari Seldons storyline..wonderful character
& real cloak and dagger stuff.

as said foundation is a fantastic read, so interwoven..real page turner.
might just download again for old times sake...heat added.

*Piqued my interest and brought to mind, for those into sci fi, one i'd like to read again on Kindle.

Mr Ralson ( review 3 at posting), matches my memories of the book perfectly.

Good book all the same, though

No, I was meaning you'd already know who the guy/girl/other in the "thing" was at the end of the thing... there's some interesting character crossover...

Many thanks for the heads up op. Purchased all 3 foundation books.


There are more then 3 books in the series:
Prelude to foundation,
Forward the foundation,
Foundation,
Foundation and empire,
Second foundation,
Foundation’s edge
Foundation and earth.

I highly recommend you read foundation followed by foundation and the empire. In my opinion the best 2 books in the series but the hole lot are excellent.

You can't go wrong with anything from the SF masterworks collection.
