In the prequel Prelude to Foundation, Isaac Asimov takes us back to see how psychohistory, the science that saved humanity, was born — and it's kind of a crazy ride. Knife fights, mustaches, and high-level math await!
Here we are on day six of Foundation Week, a very special Blogging the Hugos event. Today we jump back in time for Isaac Asimov's Prelude to Foundation, from 1988. (And check out our posts on the first five Foundation books, which all take place after this one: Foundation, Foundation and Empire, Second Foundation, 1983 Hugo winner Foundation's Edge, and Foundation and Earth.)
