From Isaac Asimov, the Hugo Award-winning Grand Master of Science Fiction whose name is synonymous with the science of robotics, comes five decades of robot visions: thirty-four landmark stories and essays--including three rare tales--gathered together in one volume.

Meet all of Asimov's most famous creations including: Robbie, the very first robot that his imagination brought to life; Susan Calvin, the original robot psychologist; Stephen Byerley, the humanoid robot; and the famous human/robot detective team of Lije Bailey and R. Daneel Olivaw, who have appeared in such bestselling novels as The Robots of Dawn and Robots and Empire .

Let the master himself guide you through the key moments in the fictional history of robot-human relations--from the most primitive computers and mobile machines to the first robot to become a man.

"It's good to have Isaac's classic robot stories, and his commentary on them, in one handsome volume."--Arthur C. Clarke

This hefty, 500-page book contains 36 short stories and essays on robots, penned by famed Sci-Fi writer, Isaac Asimov.

Of course, it's Asimov's earliest tales here (written from 1940 to 1960) that remain among the most admired and intriguing in the field of robotics.

This volume also contains numerous illustrations, as well.

*Note* - Isaac Asimov died in 1992 at the age of 72.
