KIRKUS REVIEW

Three sections (robots, androids and computers) pursue the mechanical areas of SF to the utmost logic and Simak, Asimov, Lieber, Tenn, Sturgeon, Clement and others send them along their way, to end with Karel Capek's R.U.R. an early word on men and machines. From individual baby-sitters, to a runaway gagman, to an automatic city and on to pseudo-life, these twenty tales specialize most competently, and have introductory signposts for an inquiring audience. Plus a list of supplementary reading.
