Time Was: Isaac Asimov's I-Bots
Time Was: Isaac Asimov's I-Bots, written by two of the field's rising stars, Steve Perry and Gary A. Braunbeck, is based on a concept originated by the grand master of science fiction himself, Isaac Asimov. Asimov, the most recognized SF writer of all time, first created and then popularized our modern concept of the robot in his famous novels and short story collections. Books like Caves of Steel, The Naked Sun, and I, Robot defined the robot for generations of readers. But, in his conception of the I-Bots, Asimov began to take his unique vision of the robot in a revolutionary new direction. While Asimov was not able to write the I-Bots' story himself, Perry and Braunbeck have crafted his vision into a gripping suspense-filled novel.
