    1. I have been fascinated by stories about robots, androids and their like since I first read Asimov s robot stories My imagination was further piqued when seeing Gort and Robby portrayed on the silver screen in my childhood This book had some great examples of a variety of the stories I love Surprisingly it had a large amount of pieces having to do with religious themes Since these themes often lend themselves to reflecting our human nature, it covers many philosophical areas.
