“This collection offers 18 stories about robots as well as brief essays in which Asimov comments on robots in fiction, the Frankenstein complex, his famous Three Laws and the development of actual robots. “The earliest tales here, written from 1940 to 1960, remain among the most-loved in the field,” —Publishers Weekly

“Classic stories with new material, both fiction and fact, that puts the whole theme together in a larger context.” —Poul Andersen
