A collection of 35 stories, ranging from contemporary to the fantastic.

With one outstanding feature — everyone in the stories are robots. Mechanical constructs. But with human emotions.

I’m not quite sure what to make of it.

Some I enjoyed (like “Bandwidth” by Rob G, which shows two robot combatants whose aim was to eliminate each other to advance to the next game level. Then shows how the lightly armed robot outwitting the heavily armed one).

The stories are fine by themselves.

Although some I didn’t get the plot or the point.

And overall it still makes me ponder about the significance, and relevance, of juxtaposing mechanical beings with humanistic plots.

Or maybe that’s the point.

Warning: swear words in some stories.
