‘An exciting science thriller...’
New York Times
‘Isaac Asimov was one of the great explainers of the age...It will never be known how many practicing scientists today, in how many countries, owe their initial inspiration to a book, article, or short story by Isaac Asimov’
‘Asimov displayed one of the most dynamic imaginations in science fiction’
‘Asimov’s career was one of the most formidable in science fiction’
Isaac Asimov ushered in the Robot Age with these stories. Far removed from the metal monsters of pulp sf, his positronic robots gave him the scope to examine the minefield of human psychology by exploring the possibilities of artificial intelligence.
When Earth is ruled by master-machines, when robots often seem more human than mankind, the Three Laws of Robotics ensure that humans remain superior and the robots are kept in their rightful place. But an insane telepathic robot results from a production error; a robot assembled in space logically deduces its superiority to non-rational humanity; and when machines serve mankind rather than individual humans, the machine's idea of what is good for society may itself contravene the sacred Three Laws.
These timeless stories from the Grand Master of science fiction provide a fascinating insight into how robot and humans might coexist. Asimov's questioning of definitions of humanity and human behaviour continues to capture the imagination in these brilliantly inventive and thought-provoking tales.
'Asimov displayed one of the most dynamic imaginations in science fiction'
