Yet another wonderful book of robot stories. He has such a wonderful and succinct descriptive style. Such a pity about the gender bias that is revealed in his female characters that will always detract a bit from his work for me. ( )

I believe the technical term for stories such as these is "quaint". ( )

I am a huge fan of Isaac Asimov, and especially of his robots. As I have noticed with some writers of short fiction in this genre, new collections almost always include favorites from previous years, so there will be some repetition (that feeling of deja vu which is hardly ever unwelcome considering the author and the stories and, in my opinion worth a re-read). His short stories often have a punchline which is uniquely typical of Asimov, and very often an amusing one. It does not matter if I have read most of these stories before, they are always a welcome revisit, and still provide for me a fascinating look into a possible future that I find myself wistfully wishing for.

A collection of the short stories that did not make it into I, Robot. ( )

I love Asimov's robot stories, and this book is essentially a continuation of "I, Robot". Asimov was at the top of his craft in writing these stories. ( )
