After writing the Foundation trilogy in the 1940s, Isaac Asimov abandoned the series for a third of a century before finally returning to it with 'Foundation's Edge'. Of course, once he started there was no stopping him and book after book poured forth from his typewriter. But this was the first, so very long awaited, of his sequels to the original trilogy.
498 years after its founding, the Foundation continued to follow the Seldon Plan -- too perfectly, as Golan Trevize came to realize. It was hardly credible, after the huge disruption caused by the Mule, that Hari Seldon's projections would somehow continue to provide infallible guidance for the Foundation. Asking those questions, though, earned Trevize only exile.
Stor Gendibal of the Second Foundation was also disturbed by this perfection, and was sent forth to follow Trevize.
"Behind both came the warships of the Foundation, risking holocaust to utilize whatever Trevize had found. He had found an impossible planet - with even more impossible powers. Events had gone far beyond the Seldon Plan. And only Trevize could save the Plan -- or destroy it forever!"; 7" - 9" Tall
