Foundation and Empire is a science fiction novel by American writer Isaac Asimov originally published by Gnome Press in 1952. It is the second book in the Foundation Series, and the fourth in the in-universe chronology. It takes place in two parts, originally published as separate novellas. The second part, “The Mule”, won a Retro Hugo Award in 1996.
Foundation and Empire saw multiple publications—it also appeared in 1955 as Ace Double (but not actually paired with another book) D-125 under the title The Man Who Upset the Universe. The stories comprising this volume were originally published in Astounding Magazine (with different titles) in 1945. Foundation and Empire was the second book in the Foundation trilogy. Decades later, Asimov wrote two further sequel novels and two prequels. Later writers have added authorized tales to the series. The Foundation Series is often regarded as one of Isaac Asimov’s best works, along with his Robot series.

The volcanic eruption at Pompeii. The asteroid that took out the dinosaurs. The Internet of Things. If you classify all three of these things as “disasters of historical proportions”, you’d be right. The Internet of Things is, quite possibly, the most dangerous thing to happen to the Internet — and our modern way of life — in a long time. Give me 1 hour. I’ll prove it to you. About Bryan Lunduke Bryan Lunduke is a technology journalist for Network World, member of the openSUSE Board, developer and community evangelist for SUSE, author of nerdy books, podcaster, and creator of ridiculous videos.
