“The Complete Robot,” published in 1982 by Doubleday, is an essential collection of science fiction short stories by Isaac Asimov, spanning nearly four decades of his work from 1939 to 1977. This volume brings together 31 stories, making up almost the entirety of Asimov’s writings on robots. Many of these tales had previously been published in magazines and other anthologies, including the iconic “I, Robot” from 1950.

The collection serves as a deep and multifaceted exploration of the relationship between humans and robots, focusing on recurring themes in Asimov’s work such as “the Three Laws of Robotics.” These laws act as an ethical and logical framework guiding the interactions between humans and machines, and often serve as the starting point for complex moral and ethical dilemmas.

“The Complete Robot” is not merely an anthology; it is a compendium that encapsulates Asimov’s vision on robotics and artificial intelligence—topics that have gained even more relevance in the contemporary world. This book is a must-read for any science fiction enthusiast and provides a comprehensive introduction to Asimov’s robotic universe.
