Isaac Asimov – Second Foundation (1953) Review

Also in this series: Foundation (1951) Foundation and Empire (1952) The story of the Foundation and the Mule continues, and it is a relief that Asimov chose to stick with a set of characters for a longer time. The Mule … Continue reading

The Man Who Killed Hitler and Then The Bigfoot (2018) Review
