So I’ll make official what anybody reading my not-so-cryptic posts about a sort-of-but-not-really secret project has probably figured out: I have contacted several authors about putting together a small anthology of stories about Wright’s two laws robots – a sort of theological “I, Robot” chronicling the history of theo-bots over human history. I am trying to work my way up to a total of nine stories (the number in “I, Robot”). Currently four and a half are written, with a total of eight officially slated – so I’ll probably have to bring in one more author.
So far the stories that have been submitted to me (I’ll name the specific authors a little later on) have been absolutely amazing. I’m working with not one but several world class writers who have taken the idea in directions I never would have considered.
I’m very excited about this, and so far what’s been submitted has been as good or better than I could possibly have hoped for – so look out for this!
