    This anthology copyright 1983 contains stories that still stand up That's because 1 they were written by top notch authors who thought deeply about our future with intelligent machines and because 2 we haven't actually made intelligent machines yet so there's been no chance for the stories to become obsolete Well some of the earlier stories refer to vacuum tubes but other than that My favorite stories were The Lost Machine by John Wyndham Farewell to the Master by Harry Bates I Have No Mouth and I Must Scream by Harlan Ellison The Monkey Wrench by Gordon R Dickson and The Bicentennial Man by Isaac Asimov Everyone younger than 40 and certainly 30 had better start thinking about what life could be like once someone develops thinking robots because it could happen while you folks are alive This book contains so much food for thought such a spectrum of speculative ideas that it is still useful over 30 years later in thinking about the possibilities of machines that think

    This was a trip down Memory Lane since I'd read many of these stories back in the decade or so after they were first published

    This has been my favorite collection of science fiction stories for many years and I always keep coming back to it It was also reprinted in 1992 under the title War With the Robots though that version is missing the Harlen Ellison story I Have No Mouth and I Must Scream
