Description

Technological advance is never straightforward. A man is murdered by an automaton built for chess.

A computer system designed to arbitrate justice develops a taste for iron-fisted, fatal rulings.

An AI governing what we now know as an internet wreaks havoc on society after removing all forms of censorship.

Assembled with parts from the late 19th century to the 1960s, this new collection of classic stories warns of the possible threats, both comic and severe, of a world in which human and machine live side by side.

A delightfully, and worryingly, prescient selection for today’s world in which robotic coexistence is passing with each day from speculation to reality.
