RRRAWRRR!!!  ZZZZZZTTTTT!!!  ZZZZAAAAPPPPP!!!


The robots of the 50s and 60s science fiction movies and novels captured our hearts and our imaginations.  Their clunky, bulbous bodies with their clear domed heads, whirling antennae, and randomly flashing lights staggered ponderously across the screen and page and into our souls—whether as a constant companion or as the invading army threatening to exterminate our world.  We can never return to that innocent time, where the robot overlords could be identified by their burning red eyes or our trusty robot sidekick would warn us instantly of danger—


Or can we?


With a touch of nostalgia and a little tongue-in-cheek humor, here are fifteen stories from today’s leading science fiction and fantasy authors that take us back to the time of evil robot overlords, invading armies, and not-quite-trustworthy mechanical companions.  Join Julie E. Czerneda, Brandon Daubs, Tanya Huff, Brian Trent, L.E. Modesitt, Jr., Jason Palmatier, Jez Patterson, Gini Koch, Lauren Fox, Sharon Lee & Steve Miller, Philip Brian Hall, Rosemary Edghill, R. Overwater, Helen French, and Seanan McGuire as we step into the future with a nod to the past.  Hold on to those stun guns.  You may need them!

Seanan McGuire

Seanan McGuire is the author of the Hugo, Nebula, Alex and Locus Award-winning Wayward Children series, the October Daye series, the InCryptid series, and other works.

She also writes darker fiction as Mira Grant. Seanan lives in Seattle with her cats, a vast collection of creepy dolls, horror movies, and sufficient books to qualify her as a fire hazard.

She won the 2010 John W. Campbell Award for Best New Writer, and in 2013 became the first person to appear five times on the same Hugo ballot.

Steve Miller

Steve Miller is a multimedia artist who investigates the ways in which art, design, and scientific technology intersect in contemporary culture. Educated at Middlebury College and the Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture, Miller’s work, which spans the disciplines of painting, photography, and sculpture, played a critical role in pioneering the Sci-Art movement. With over 50 solo exhibitions at major institutions across the globe - including the National Academy of Sciences, Jack Shainman Gallery, and Hong Kong Arts Center - his work has been reviewed in Le Monde, ARTnews, The New York Times, Artforum, and Art in America, among others.
