Summary

Preludio a la Fundación es el primer libro del «Ciclo de la Fundación», tercer bloque de la célebre «Saga de la Fundación», la serie que catapultó al autor en lo más alto de la ciencia ficción.

Corre el año 12020 en Trántor, la próspera capital del Imperio Galáctico, una civilización de una complejidad tecnológica y cultural inimaginable. Sin embargo, Hari Seldon, la mente científica más brillante de su época acaba de augurar un desastre colosal a través de la psicohistoria, una nueva ciencia capaz de predecir el futuro mediante fórmulas matemáticas. Cuando el emperador Cleón busque apropiársela, Seldon deberá huir para que sus ideas no caigan en las manos equivocadas.
Esta precuela a la famosa trilogía de la Fundación es un hito en la historia de la ciencia ficción y toda una revolución para los lectores, tanto los fans de los libros originales como los que están a punto de embarcarse en este viaje intergaláctico.

«Una de las carreras más formidables de la ciencia ficción». —The Times

ENGLISH DESCRIPTION

The first of two prequel novels in Isaac Asimov’s classic science-fiction masterpiece, the Foundation series

It is the year 12,020 G.E. and Emperor Cleon I sits uneasily on the Imperial throne of Trantor. Here in the great multidomed capital of the Galactic Empire, forty billion people have created a civilization of unimaginable technological and cultural complexity. Yet Cleon knows there are those who would see him fall—those whom he would destroy if only he could read the future.

Hari Seldon has come to Trantor to deliver his paper on psychohistory, his remarkable theory of prediction. Little does the young Outworld mathematician know that he has already sealed his fate and the fate of humanity. For Hari possesses the prophetic power that makes him the most wanted man in the Empire . . . the man who holds the key to the future—an apocalyptic power to be known forever after as the Foundation.
