Publisher's Summary

Humans beware. As the robotic revolution continues to creep into our lives, it brings with it an impending sense of doom. What horrifying scenarios might unfold if our technology were to go awry? From self-aware robotic toys to intelligent machines violently malfunctioning, this anthology brings to life the half-formed questions and fears we all have about the increasing presence of robots in our lives. With contributions from a mix of best-selling, award-winning, and up-and-coming writers, and including a rare story by "the father of artificial intelligence", Dr. John McCarthy, Robot Uprisings meticulously describes the exhilarating and terrifying near-future in which humans can only survive by being cleverer than the rebellious machines they have created.

    "Has some bright spots"

    Anthologies can be tricky because you have your good stories, bad stories and in between. This one had all of the above. There were some stories that were entertaining and others that were so boring I had to skip. If you like stories about robots, AI, or technology run amok, this book is for you, otherwise don't bother.
