Gallun, Michael Fischer In the future, man's best friend may be a robot! — Not all robots in fiction are hostile to man. Many, like the ones in these stories, make life easier for man and--in their contact with human society--become "humanized."€¯ — For example, the hunted Adam Link in I, Robot¯proves himself noble and self-sacrificing. The robot-surgeon in Rex fails in ... more »a bold, misguided scheme because he develops human emotions. Ronald, the oddball in the prize-winning story Misfit,€finds that he can't conform to the behavior of his fellow robots. And the romantic female robot in Helen O'Loy€even falls in love with her master.
These are some of the mechanical heroes and heroines you'll meet in this spellbinding collection of modern robot stories. All are, first and foremost, entertaining, and all hold up a mirror to man and his behavior.
