By Isaac Asimov
Cover artist: Robert Schultz
The most well-known, and arguably best, collection of robot stories ever published. These nine stories, originally published in "pulp" science fiction magazines of the 1940s and 50s, demonstrate what made Isaac Asimov's robot stories so different from their predecessors. In a future that contains robots, Asimov felt that rather than becoming monsters and turning on their creators, robots would merely act as they were programmed to behave. This thinking was the genesis of his Three Laws of Robotics which were first articulated in the story Runaround, the basis for Robert Schultz' wonderful cover illustration. Aside from introducing the three laws, Runaround cleverly shows the inherent dangers of allowing robots room for their own interpretation of the laws -- one of the finest tales in a brilliant collection of stories.
