Lucy is generally a mysterious and mysteriously good-looking fellow who has knelt next to a wild baboon, been chased by a hungry hyena (or coyote, depending on who's telling the story) on his bicycle, and climbed Mt. Washington in his dreams. All true stories.

Trump and Republicans and many of their supporters have, since the election, many times said, "The election is over.  Get over it.  We need a unified country."  Oftentimes these statements are followed with, "You've never seen the Republicans act that way."

Of course, anyone with an unbiased memory will immediately know these statements for what they are: hypocritical amnesia.  Many Republicans... Read more of this blog post »

The other prelude, Prelude to Foundation, is all the prelude you need for the first Foundation (and as I said in the review for Prelude to Foundation, you really shouldn't read either of the preludes before starting the Foundation novels anyway). Thi ...more

There's a twist at the end that you'll love, especially if you waited to read the preludes until after reading through the Foundation novels themselves. If you haven't read the Robot series before this book, you need to read those first for this book ...more

Foundation's Edge by Isaac Asimov
Rate this book

This is the first Foundation novel not a part of the original trilogy. The difference is obvious. It's almost as if Asimov is writing a whole book just to get to the fifth installment. Foundation's Edge, on its own, is kind of silly when viewed in li ...more

Boomsday is no disappointment compared to Buckley's other fiction. Critical political satire at its finest. VEEP is great and all, but Buckley was doing it first.

The plot does seem to move at a brisk pace with a great number of twists and turns that

The book has an obvious political bias to it. You should know that the second you pick it up. The rationale is, of course, that all history books have a political bias from the perspective of the victory, of the winner, which usually includes the 'gr ...more
