Foward the Foundation remains one of the greatest triumphs of science fiction. The stunning masterpiece is a powerful conclusion to the Foundation saga, jumping backward in time to the end of Hari Seldon's life, which curiously parallels Asimov's own.

In this book, Asimov completes his tale about the life of Hari Selson, the discoverer of 'psychohistory.' This follow-up of Prelude to Foundation tells how Seldon achieved his dream of ensuring the human future.

One - "I dont know about this kyle. We are just kids ya know."kellie said as she and I walked through the forest looking for my brother. " Calm down kellie, its ok. I got this." I said as my blue eyes flickered across the forest. Kellie screamed as a knife flew at my head. I ducked and the knife hit atree. I saw dark figure come from the fog and from the way its red eyes were staring at me i didnt want to meet it. "Lets go!" I whispered as it approached us. I got in front of KEllie and the figure screamed in a shrill voice. I turned around and ran the oppisite direction momentarily forgetting about Kellie. I turned around and she screamed from a distance away. I ran back and saw her in thhe creatures grasp screaming and struggling for breath..............two-she looked at me and mouthed the words "bye". I screamed " No! " I charghed the man and stumbled when i saw him. He or it was humanoid on the body but the face was like an ants head, litteraly an ants head. Its voice seeped into my head and siad "she will die same as your little brother".................that is all i got for now please give me feedback.
