  • From Kapek's biotech machines of R.U.R. to Kuttner's Proud Robot to the fictional assortment of mechanical sex toys, rebels, grandmothers, servants, and masters, these machines have represented our dreams as well as our anxieties. We love these literary creations but fear them as well. Stories from the last decade representing the many faces of robots -- beautiful, hideous, and everything in between.
