1) What did you think of the Greg Bear foundation trilogy?
The first book, Gregory Benford's Foundation's Fear is... Well, Benford updates the Foundation universe to account for modern science, and what you get is interesting but very flawed.

The second book, Greg Bear's Foundation and Chaos, is much better.

The third book, David Brin's Foundation's Triumph, is the best official Foundation novel since Foundation's Edge.

2) Anyone read Pyschohistorical Crisis by Donald Kingsbury - I've heard good things about it and was looking to pick up a second hand copy
Do it.

3) Do you think that Asimov was ultimately successful in melding together his two universes?
In general, yes.
