THE SECOND BOOK OF THE GALATIC EMPIRE SERIES THE SECOND BOOK OF THE GALATIC EMPIRE SERIES A nova-bright adventure and the spectacular precursor to the classic Foundation series by a founding father of science fiction. The fate of the galaxy hangs in the balance. High above the planet Florina, the Squires of Sark live in unimaginable wealth and comfort. Down in the eternal spring of its surface, however, the native Florinians labour ceaselessly for their Sarkite masters. Rebellion is unthinkable and impossible. But now both worlds are hurtling toward a cataclysm, and only one man knows the truth; a man without a memory or a past, unaware of the secret locked inside his own brain. . . Their world is doomed. ‘Isaac Asimov was one of the great explainers of the age…It will never be known how many practising scientists today, in how many countries, owe their initial inspiration to a book, article, or short story by Isaac Asimov’Carl Sagan ‘Asimov displayed one of the most dynamic imaginations in science fiction’Daily Telegraph ‘Asimov’s career was one of the most formidable in science fiction’The Times Isaac Asimov was born in 1920 in Russia and was brought to the USA by his parents three years later.
