“Foundation and Empire” by Isaac Asimov
It was Hari Seldon who predicted the decay of the Galactic Empire. In his dire efforts to shorten the dark ages following the doom, he created two opposing fractions which are supposed to eventually unify under the idea of a stronger and better Second Foundation. “Foundation and Empire” is divided into two parts: “The General” and “The Mule”. “The General” takes us right in the middle of the raging conflict between the Empire and the Foundation. General Bel Riose tired from the passive position of Emperor Cleon II is planing to unleash an attack at the much weaker Foundation. After the dangerous power struggle between Emperor and General, comes to an end, Asimov adds a twist to the story. In “The Mule”, a mutant is introduced. As such his existence couldn’t be foreseen by Seldon’s model and his great impact on history endangers the already questionable future of the Empire.
