"Neither novels nor trilogy, but rather a series of nine stories written in the 1940s and inspired by the fall of Rome. Eight were written for Campbell's Astounding. Now classics, they portray the destruction of a human galactic empire and the efforts of psycho-historians to shorten the coming dark ages. To do this, they set up a hidden Foundation to guide man in the development of a new culture...Some internal inconsistencies and pulp writing style, but the series helped open SF to new content beyond mere space opera. Awarded a special Hugo (1966) for best all-time series" (Anatomy of Wonder).
