I, Robot / Isaac Asimov / 225 pgs
The stories span decades from the earliest years of the 21st century to about 2060 AD, and they trace the development of artificial intelligence to a conclusion that is completely logical once you get to it. Asimov published these stories together in I, Robot in 1950 and although science did not progress nearly as quickly as he envisioned, the stories still resonate today. My favorite stories are "Robbie," "Liar," and "Evidence." The Three Laws of Robotics are within every story, but how the robots interpret these laws are extremely interesting. I highly recommend this sci-fi classic!
