If 'faction' denotes the type of books that mix fact and fiction then this must be 'Science Faction'. The author is clearly well-informed on current 'robotic' trends, but interjects some very dry but witty homour. Like an updated version of 'to avoid a Dalek attack, just use the stairs', but now, 'how to spot a humanoid android', 'how to escape from a killer smart house' and 'using sensor vulnerabilities to escape unmanned ground vehicles' amongst many, many more. You even get advice on escaping the robot uprising and starting a new human civilisation........ My favourite piece of advice was that, when attacked in the face by a gecko robot, remember to peel, not pull! And I will never look at my iRobot vacuum cleaner the same way again....Particularly fabulous as an audio book as the narrator has the perfect, sinister vocal style....
