Richard Matheson is one of the original masters of Sci-Fi, often pitting man against man, machine or nature. In the case of "Steel", the combatants were machines - androids - after human boxing had been banned. This short story became the basis for the 2011 movie "Real Steel". Constant Readers benefit by the publication of these nearly forgotten stories in one volume.
Stories in this collection, originally published between 1952 & 1958 in Playboy and several Fanzines popular at the time, was not anthologized until 2011.
