Publisher's Summary

This is a collection of seven contemporary robot tales written by some of today's most acclaimed science-fiction authors.

A sentient war machine combs a beach for trinkets to create memorials for its fallen comrades in the Hugo Award-winning story, "Tideline", by Elizabeth Bear. In "Balancing Accounts", by James Cambias, a small-time independent robotic space tug is hired by a mysterious client for a voyage between two of Saturn's moons. "The Seventh Expression of the Robot General", by Jeffrey Ford, involves a robot general coming to grips with his position in a world that no longer requires, or even understands, his role. A city awakens its ancient guardian as it is about to be invaded by a mining company in "Shining Armour" by Dominic Green.

In "The Illustrated Biography of Lord Grimm", by Daryl Gregory, a country ruled by a super villain comes under attack by American super heroes. In "Sanjeev and Robotwallah", by Ian McDonald, a young boy becomes enamored with the armed robots that do the fighting in a Civil War and the celebrity boy-soldier's who pilot them. A robot acting as a scarecrow could be a desperate boy's one chance of staying alive in "The Scarecrow's Boy" by Michael Swanwick.

These are unabridged readings by Amy Bruce and J. P. Linton.

    "Not Good"

    This is one of the worse collections I have ever listened to. Swanwick can usually be counted on for a good short story, but he struck out this time. Jeffery Ford had the best story, but it is the only good story out of the seven stories. I have read several stories by Elizabeth Bear and one of her books, I have yet to read one that wasn't torture to finish.

    To make this even worse the narrators are pure amateurs.

    Kaster did an extremely poor job on this one.
