Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Even though life does hurt, would we want robots around dedicated to preventing that pain? The author explores this question in one of the earliest and most popular robot novels in the genre. Stefan Rudnicki narrates, his pleasant bass voice providing good tone for the story, which is filled with mechanical men, atomic weapons, brilliant scientists, and rebels.” AudioFile
“Features a deep, human-uniting struggle against humanoids who are eerily human and characters who are warts-and-all real people with whom readers empathize…Stefan Rudnicki’s rumbly voice lends humanity and depth to characters created in 1948.” Library Journal

A Renaissance man, he was a master of fantasy and horror as well as science fiction.
