Has it ever happened to you to be deeeeep in a book and suddenly, you realize you might have actually read that book before? Well, I thought that would never happen to me and surprisingly I experienced this recently with the Foundation series by Isaac Asimov.
I knew it was a Classic among the science-fiction Classics and when I came across that beautiful and modern edition by Harper Voyager, I thought it was time to finally read it. I LOVED it. Really. The first three books (Foundation, Foundation and Empire, Second Foundation – if reading by date of publication) are quite gripping and I couldn’t get my hands off it. It took me a while to realize I had already read it when I was a teenager. It’s such a great story that I don’t regret reading it again.
Now I can’t wait to read more Asimov, probably the Robot series. Luckily enough, Harper Voyager has published this other series in the same spirit and nice design as the Foundation series. If you’re getting started with the Foundation series from Harper Voyager, you should know Forward to Foundation isn’t available in this collection as they don’t hold the rights, unfortunately. In any case, you’ll have plenty to read with the six books they’ve published! Enjoy!
