Publisher’s Blurb – Lower Cover
Isaac Asimov himself suggested that there were areas in his monumental Foundation series that needed further exploration. In Foundation’s Fear, Gregory Benford rises magnificently to that challenge and the classic series continues . . .

Hari Seldon, close to perfecting his theory of Psychohistory, is now a reluctant candidate for First Minister. But dangerous enemies force him to flee Trantor. However, the difficulties he faces only serve to hone Hari’s political skills for the confrontation to come.

Benford’s superb storytelling, grand vision and firm grasp of hard science combine to produce an important and compelling work and take Asimov’s Foundation into new, unexpected and disturbing territory.

'It took a long time for the future to get history. Then, in 1942, Isaac Asimov began the Foundation series, and the future took shape; hills, chasms, paths, cities, dark ages and bright. It was a story we could walk into. Now it’s time to take another step'
John Clute
