REVIEW: “An entertaining and disturbing romp through many possible futures.” —Washington Independent Review of Books

Washington Independent Review of Books reviews ROBOT UPRISINGS: “Each story contains an intriguing premise about robot sentience and shows a different aspect of the robot uprising.

Although Robot Uprisings is a collection, it feels more like a similar future prophesied by seventeen frightened oracles. […] An entertaining and disturbing romp through many possible futures.” It singles out Robin Wasserman’s story as the best story in the anthology. [review]

[…] Under the guidance of a first-tier anthologist like Adams and one of sci-fi’s resident techhounds in Wilson, Robot Uprising has a more accessible feel than many science fiction collections, and the sheer breadth of storytelling styles included makes this a great introduction to sci-fi for new readers.” [review]

REVIEW: Kirkus Says “Philip K. Dick Would Be Proud”

“Fun fact: According to the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, as of 2010 there were 8.6 million robots in the world. Fun scenario: They’re all out to kill us… This anthology neatly explores that possibility, its contributors offering widely varying takes that share only the perspective that things don’t end well for Homo sapiens… Philip K. Dick would be proud… You’ll never look at your Roomba the same way again.” —Kirkus Reviews  [review]
