In many ways better than the origional Foundation series, this story gives the feel of the hugeness of the galaxy in both space and history. The charactors are memorable and engage our sympathy with out being moral paragons. The publisher's advertising concentrates of the new technology, (the familliars) but this is a subtle story about power where warring groups can manipulate the future in knowable ways. It is also a story about pychohistory written by a mathemetician and the depth of understanding shows. A slow paced book but it has the best part of SF, it makes you think!

An authentic masterpiece! Kingsbury has outdone himself in writing a sequel that is *better* than Asimov's original Foundation trilogy! Absolutely *delicious* reading! No real SF fan should miss this book!
