Head of Zeus
We, Robots
We, Robots edited by Simon Ings

From 1837 through to the present day, from Charles Dickens to Cory Doctorow, Simon Ings presents a hundred of the best short stories on artificial intelligence from around the world.

These stories demonstrate humanity's enduring fascination with artificial creation. Crafted in our image, androids mirror our greatest hopes and darkest fears: we want our children to do better and be better than us, but we also place ourselves in jeopardy by creating beings that may eventually out-think us.

This compelling SF figure has persisted across decades and subgenres, so the anthology is organised into six thematic sections: Making Robots, Dealing with Robots, Served by Robots, Changing Places with Robots, Being Robots, and, finally, Supplanted by Robots.

We, Robots collects the finest android short stories the genre has to offer, from the biggest names in the field to the exciting rising stars.
