Read this during my university degree back in the 90s, as part of the Philosophy of Science Fiction module, & loved it. I had a huge interest in TV, film & toy robots as a child, so it was great being able to study the subject at uni.

A brilliant selection of sci-fi short stories.

My two favorites were 'The Machine Stops' by E.M. Forster and 'Breath's a Ware That Will Not Keep' by Thomas F. Monteleone.

'Impostor', 'The Show Must Go On' and 'The Weed of Time' were really good as well.

The anthology is divided into parts, each supplied with interesting subject introductions and relevant study questions. Highly recommended!
