Science Fiction and Fantasy.

A series where hosts talk about Science Fiction and Fantasy in the form of books, movies, TV series, etc.

There were three authors who were considered the Big Three in the Golden age: Isaac Asimov, Arthur C. Clarke, and Robert A. Heinlein. We will look at all three, but this episode is a look at Asimov, from his beginnings to the writing of his most famous work, the Foundation series. We will see what this series was saying in its original form of the Foundation Trilogy, then at the expansion of the series in the 1980s when Asimov took it up again. We will also mention the trilogy assigned to three other writers in the late 1990s, and to the audio and video adaptations.
