Anthology Book 1: This is an eclectic collection of science fiction short stories which are considered "oldies but goodies". The stories are based on robots and were published in 1930-1950's. These seven stories vary from humorous to the thought provoking military application of robots and the consequences to humanity. The stories are by classic award winning authors and masters of science fiction. In view of the development of artificial intelligence in our world, these stories provide an insight and an interesting read!

The classic seven short stories in Book 1 are:

B-12'S MOON GLOW

Robot B-12 held a special niche. He might not have been stronger, larger, faster than some--but he could be devious-- and more important, he was that junkyard planetoid's only moonshiner. A really fun 1950's short story about a moon-shining robot who outsmarts the Senator who wants to "part" him out for scrap.

THE PROUD ROBOT

Gallagher a scientist, wakes up after being drunk to find a robot standing in front of his wall mirror admiring himself. The robot is totally in love with itself and Gallagher has no idea how he came to create it or what it is for. When Gallagher finally realises, there are surprises. A short story with plenty of humour.

THE 7th ORDER

Don't you just hate it when an alien robotic-humanoid race believes that it is superior to the human race--well is it?

LOVE OF FRANK NINETEEN

This short story is about robots that have fallen in love, the consequences, and the humans that help them. It raises questions that still fuel science fiction and futurists today--at what point will robots be considered sentient beings with rights?

THE VELVET GLOVE

SF writer Harry Harrison explores a not-too-distant future where robots--particularly specialist robots who don't know their place--have quite a rough time of it, even if the Robot Equality Act had been passed. This is an engaging short story of a robot caught up in events and.....

SECOND VARIETY

A gripping short story set in a post-apocalyptic Earth where a nuclear war between two major countries has occurred. One side developed self-replicating robots called "claws". The claws have taken self-replication to a whole new level.

THE REVOLT OF THE MACHINES

Throughout the world, machines did the work of man, but something in the many-faceted mind of the master machine spurs it to diabolical revolt against the authority of its human masters.
