The Complete Robot


Daughter loved the Robot stories from I, Robot and wanted more. On research, this book had ALL the stories (up to its publication) so we went to it, reading on odd evenings over the last several months. Even the non-robot stories were fun :)

My favorite was among the non-robot stories - "Sally" is about cars with positronic brains. More of a tale of robot rights than autonomous vehicles, it is a self-contained story. Another great one was "Robot AL-76 Goes Astray", where a robot designed to mine on the moon accidentally crash lands in a farmer's field in Virginia.

This collection is worth the read, and wikipedia will point out the few Robot stories published after this. We plan to track those down soon. To quote my daughter, "Isaac Asimov is a great writer!"
