Some overly friendly robotic voice just called me up to let me know that the book I had placed on special order (Foundation & Empire by Isaac Asimov) has just arrived!
If you are not familiar, Asimov is the guy who wrote “i Robot,” yes the same story involving Will Smith kicking robot ass.
I have been waiting for this second book in the “Foundation” series for awhile now. This guy’s writing just gets me captivated with oddly believable intergalactic space travel and the fall of empires and rise of a collective knowledge.
All in all, highly recommended if you are at all in to science fiction.
