“Foundation” by Isaac Asimov
“Foundation” is the first book of the “Foundation Trilogy” – the winner of the 1966 Hugo Award for “Best All-Time Series”. Eventually Asimov expands the series by adding two more sequels and prequels, forming the so called “Foundation Series”. “Foundation” consists of five interconnected stories serving as an introduction to Asimov’s universe. For more than 13 000 years, mankind has been flourishing, reaching out for new worlds while turning the Earth into a distant memory. The year is 0 F.E. (Foundation Era) and the Galactic Empire appears strong after dominating the galaxy for over 10 millennia. On the capitol world of Trantor, Hari Seldon has developed a science called psychohistory. Through complicated equations it predicts the future of a massive population over a large period of time. Using his method he has found out that the Empire is in fact in a state of decline, which is soon to be followed by 30 000 years of dark ages. The only thing that can be done is reducing the dark period to a mere millennium by cataloging all mankind’s knowledge and history in a single book called the “Encyclopedia Foundation”.
