For twelve thousand years the Galactic Empire has ruled supreme. Now it is dying. Only Hari Seldon, creator of the revolutionary science of psychohistory, can see into the future - a dark age of ignorance, barbarism, and warfare. To preserve knowledge and save humanity, Seldon gathers the best minds in the Empire and brings them to a bleak planet at the edge of the galaxy to serve as a beacon of hope for future generations.
FOUNDATION AND EMPIRE
Led by its founding father, the great psychohistorian Hari Seldon, the Foundation has survived the greed and barbarism of its neighboring warrior-planets. Yet now it must face the Empire - still the mightiest force in the Galaxy. When an ambitious general determined to restore the Empire’s glory turns the vast Imperial fleet toward the Foundation, the only hope for the small planet of scholars and scientists lies in the prophecies of Hari Seldon.
The unhappy inhabitants of planet Krikkit are sick of looking at the night sky - so they plan to destroy it. The universe, that is. Now only five individuals can avert Armageddon: mildmannered Arthur Dent and his stalwart crew.
