Year First Published: 1954
Page Count: 288
Synopsis: A millennium into the future two advancements have altered the course of human history:� � the colonization of the galaxy and the creation of the positronic brain.� � Isaac Asimov's Robot novels chronicle the unlikely partnership between a New York City detective and a humanoid robot who must learn to work together.� � Like most people left behind on an over-populated Earth, New York City police detective Elijah Baley had little love for either the arrogant Spacers or their robotic companions.� � But when a prominent Spacer is murdered under mysterious circumstances, Baley is ordered to the Outer Worlds to help track down the killer.� � The relationship between Life and his Spacer superiors, who distrusted all Earthmen, was strained from the start.� � Then he learned that they had assigned him a partner:� � R. Daneel Olivaw.� � Worst of all was that the "R" stood for robot--and his positronic partner was made in the image and likeness of the murder victim!
