FOUNDATION'S EDGE. [Binghamton]: Whispers Press, 1982. Octavo, leather-backed linen. Limited edition. One of 1000 numbered copies signed by Asimov and publisher Stuart Schiff. "A belated sequel to the 'Foundation Trilogy,' marking Asimov's return to his distinctive brand of cerebral space opera after more than twenty years. In this yarn (and the related novels THE ROBOTS OF DAWN, ROBOTS AND EMPIRE, FOUNDATION AND EARTH and PRELUDE TO FOUNDATION) Asimov explains the galactic history of THE STARS LIKE DUST and the "Foundation" series as a plot by the robots (from the otherwise unconnected 'Robot' stories) to ensure the survival and happiness of the human race, and hints that the history-altering time travelers of THE END OF ETERNITY set up the whole thing." - Pringle, The Ultimate Guide to Science Fiction, second edition (1995), p. 143. Winner of the 1983 Hugo award. 1982 Nebula nominee. Anatomy of Wonder (2004) II-47. Sargent, British and American Literature, 1516-1985, p. 410. A fine copy without dust jacket as issued. (#168204).
