This is book number two in the new Second Foundation Trilogy being written by hard science fiction authors Gregory Benford, Greg Bear, and David Brin, otherwise known as the "Killer B's." In this book, Bear continues where Benford's Foundation's Fear left off, as the trial of legendary psychohistorian Hari Seldon is about to begin. Bear writes with a style uncannily similar to Foundation creator Isaac Asimov's, and he even manages to incorporate some of Asimov's own writing in the novel. Aside from the trial, Bear also focuses on the nearly immortal robots that serve the Foundation, including R. Daneel Olivaw, who is set to guide one of the Foundation's first great undertakings. But Olivaw runs into trouble from an unexpected quarter, his best operative, Lodovik Trema, whose positronic brain has been irrevocably altered in a strange accident that has given him freedom from the supposedly immutable laws of robotics. --Craig Engler --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

It fills in the void between stories I remember from youthful readings. It ties in well with the rest of the story. I feel closure with this beginning.Published 10 months ago by kwheele
Only through Chapter 27, but so far it's really well done. It is much closer to the Asimov Foundation universe than the first book in the new trilogy.Published 14 months ago by D. Reid
