In the twenty-second century Earth obtains limitless, free energy from a source science little understands: an exchange between Earth and a parallel universe, using a process devised by the aliens. But even free energy has a price. The transference process itself will eventually lead to the destruction of the Earth's Sun—and of Earth itself.

Only a few know the terrifying truth—an outcast Earth scientist, a rebellious alien inhabitant of a dying planet, a lunar-born human intuitionist who senses the imminent annihilation of the Sun. They know the truth—but who will listen? They have foreseen the cost of abundant energy—but who will believe? These few beings, human and alien, hold the key to Earth's survival.

Fun book to read.

Fairly well penned adventure from Asimov.

Obviously not his best or most famous work and the science is atrociously bad looking back now.... But that's to be expected with something so old.

Asimov's foundation series is making its way to Apple TV for better or worse. That book series is mind-bendingly good.

Happy reading
Give me a few days and I'll set you up with the entire series in Kindle format so 'you' (targeted offer) don't have to wait for a deal. Will PM you the info then.
Bet Asimov would have created a better "religion" than Hubbard.

After the release of Bob Woodward's book, and the excerpts from it, this seems unusually timely.

All the Foundation books are very good, even the prequels from around 1990. But the rest of his novels are mediocre. Now short stories--Asimov was the best at those. I'd pick up a collection of his short stories just to make them accessible to my kids.

I think this is far superior to the endless space opera of the Foundation series... and the science is better Smilie

Anyone remember this book's (rare, for Asimov) description of auto-erotica... of an alien aerogel? Wink

Not on the same level as the Foundation trilogy but a pretty solid story all the same. I recommend this if you liked the Three Body Problem, it has a lot of the same civilization vs civilization themes.

Legitimate deal or a torrent "deal"? I am definitely interested in a legit deal on the "Foundation" series.
