??Isaac Asimov might sniff (albeit approvingly) at the robots on display at ??orld's Fair, but who could have a better right than the father of the new breed of ??science fiction robots: the man who developed the science of Robotics with its famous ??ree laws. This anthology contains (with the exception of the I Robot series) the ??ulk of his stories regarding Robotics. In brief introductions he describes the conception (anti-Frankenstein) and development of his pseudo-science. Combining inex??rable logic with sympathetic humaneness, Asimov manages to endow his characters human or "R") with engaging personal characteristics while maintaining an intricate ??ot-line. Fascinating- a must for collectors. (Kirkus Reviews)
