Preludio a la Fundación, de Isaac Asimov

La Factoría de Ideas, a través de su colección Solaris Ficción, nos volverá a traer este otoño una nueva reedición de este clásico de Isaac Asimov.

Una buena oportunidad para releer esta gran obra o, para aquellos que aún no lo hayan leído, de iniciarse en el culto a Asimov, uno de los autores más importantes de ciencia ficción de todos los tiempos.

Isaac Asimov (1920-1992), escritor y científico, nació en Bielorrusia, aunque cuando tenía 3 años, sus padres, se trasladaron a vivir a Nueva York, donde transcurrió su infancia. Se graduó en bioquímica por la universidad de Columbia y, tras ser rechazado en las universidades de medicina de Nueva York, regresó a Columbia para obtener el post-grado en química en el año 1941.

Su primer contacto con la ciencia ficción le llegó en su infancia, pues su padre regentaba una tienda de golosinas en la que también se vendían revistas y con ellas empezó su afición. A los 19 años empezó a escribir sus primero relatos de ficción en las entonces llamadas “pulps”, unas revistas de ciencia ficción que ahora están consideradas como un clásico.

En 1942 consigue un empleo de investigador químico en los astilleros de la marina de guerra estadounidense, empleo que mantendría en el transcurso de la Segunda Guerra Mundial. En 1948 conseguiría el doctorado en química, accediendo a la Universidad de Boston.

Isaac Asimov no solo ha escrito libros de ciencia ficción, también son numerosos los trabajos científicos, y de otras categorías, además de relatos de fantasía y misterio. Se calcula que escribió más de 500 libros y unas 9000 cartas y postales. Asimov tiene obras en cada categoría importante del sistema decimal Dewey excepto en filosofía.

Junto con la serie Robots, la serie Fundación es la obra que más relevancia mundial le ha otorgado. El origen de esta serie se inicia con una colección de 5 relatos cortos que se publicaron por primera vez en un libro de forma conjunta por Gnome Press en 1951. Cuatro de estos relatos se habían publicado anteriormete en en la revista Astounding, dirigida por John Campbell entre 1942 y 1944. El quinto se incorporó en el momento de recopilarlos como libro. La primera edición en castellano fue publicada por la editorial Argentina Aucal en 1955. El título del primer libro fue “Fundación”.

Los otros dos libros que formaron esta serie inicial, conocida como la “Primera Trilogía de la Fundación” o también como el “Ciclo de Trántor”, fueron “Fundación e Imperio” y “Segunda Fundación”, publicados en 1952 y 1953, respectivamente.

Durante los siguientes 25 años, Asimov, se dedicaría a escribir sobre otros temas, dejando casi totalmente aparcada la ciencia ficción, de la que solo escribió cuatro libros en ese período.

A partir de 1982 iniciaria de nuevo una etapa de ciencia ficción que empieza con la publicación del libro “Los límites de la Fundación”. En 1983 escribiría “Fundación y Tierra” en la que se terminaba la saga.

En 1988 escribiría “Preludio a la Fundación”, que en realidad se convirtió en el primer libro de la serie, pues en el relata los acontecimientos anteriores a la Fundación, que se completarían con el siguiente libro y último que escribió de la saga “Hacia la Fundación”, escrito en 1993.

Este “desorden” a la hora de escribirlos, teniendo en cuenta que algunos de ellos fueron recopilados de relatos cortos publicados en revistas, como los de la Primera Trilogía, ha sido posteriormente, más o menos, imitado por Georges Lucas en su saga de La Guerra de las Galaxias.

De este modo el orden correcto de los siete libros de la saga quedaría así:

  1. “Preludio a la Fundación” (1988) que es el libro que ahora se reedita y que verá la luz este otoño.
  2. “Hacia la Fundación” (1993)
  3. “Fundación” (1951) – Primero del Ciclo de Trántor
  4. “Fundación e Imperio (1952) – Segundo del Ciclo de Trántor
  5. “La segunda Fundación (1953) – Tercero del Ciclo de Trántor
  6. “Los límites de la Fundación (1982)
  7. “Fundación y Tierra (1983) - Último libro donde finaliza la saga.
