Descripción del producto

Descripción del producto

Seemingly perfect robotic "Humanoids" appear in the town of Two Rivers and offer residents a life free of work, stress and danger. But at what cost? "With Folded Hands" follows Mr. Underhill, as the Humanoids threaten his household, destroy his android business and take control of the town in order to "Serve and Obey, and Guard Men from Harm."
A precursor to Williamson's novel THE HUMANOIDS, which Damon Knight called "without a doubt, one of the most important science-fantasy books of its decade."

"On looking back over his long and influential career, I have no hesitation in placing Jack Williamson on a level with the two other American giants, Isaac Asimov and Robert Heinlein."
- Arthur C. Clarke

"A giant in the field of science fiction...When you're the acknowledged Dean of Science Fiction, you're allowed to coast a little. Jack is the only writer around who has demonstrably improved with every passing decade."
- Mike Resnick

"He is a man of extraordinary talent and consummate humility, of penetrating intelligence and great kindness, a scholar and a gentleman. We are unbelievably lucky to have him as one of the forefathers of the field."
- Connie Willis

"Not only is he (Jack Williamson) one of the best-loved figures in the field of science fiction, he has been a pioneering writer, breaking ground in new areas long before most of us had learned how to read."
- Ben Bova

"Like the best of... wines, vintage Williamson travels well."
- David Weber

"For most of a century, Jack Williamson has been exploring the edges of what human destiny might become."
- David Brin

author bio:
Jack Williamson (1907-2006) was one of the most important and influential figures in science fiction. Born in 1907, he came to New Mexico with his family in a covered wagon in 1915. His first science fiction story appeared in a professional magazine in 1928, and he kept writing new novels and stories through 2005 when his last novel THE STONEHENGE GATE was published. His updated autobiography WONDER'S CHILD is available. Jack Williamson coined many words that became staples in science fiction and in the world at large: genetic engineering, terraforming, psionics, spaceport, prime directive, ion drive, Tellurian, neutronium. He is the only writer to receive both SFWA's Grand Master Award and the Horror Writer of America's Lifetime Achievement Award. The University of Eastern New Mexico, where he taught for many years, has a Jack Williamson library wing.

4.0 de un máximo de 5 estrellas A fun, quick read. 18 de octubre de 2014

Please note: This is not a novel, it is a novella - a story that is longer than a short story, but shorter than a proper novel, hence the price. That being said, it is quite an entertaining read. The story is dated, with all the scientific talk about tubes and radiation and atomic engines and what - we are a little more imaginative with our sci-fi tech-talk these days, but, for the time, this story was out there.

It concerns the creation and advance of a race of nearly perfect robots, whose sole purpose is to bring peace and order to mankind, and do so efficiently and relentlessly that it actually destroys what it attempts to help. A cautionary morality tale set in a distant, (if dated), future.

The story is a page-turner and ends too soon. Buy it.

Must reading to understand what is happening to our world as computers and communications slowly change us.

We do not notice that computers can replace most of us in the workplace already.

We keep our jobs by using computers to make work rather than to do work.

And by the odd notion that you do not have to know anything about computers in order to effectively use computers.

So we are using computers to simulate obsolete devices and procedures.

But in this lovely story, a genius builds devices that cut through all of this for the betterment of mankind.

And we discover why Providence has kept our development of automation at snail's pace.

I liked this story a lot. As a sci-fi fan, I found the premise compelling. It's almost like Asimov's Laws of Robotics taken to the extreme that man is not to hurt himself or others. This is pre-Battlestar Galactica, but there are similar ideas and themes related mostly to the reboot that was launched in the 2000s.

A creepy, creepy alternate take on what Asimov's Laws of Robotics could lead to. A must-read for sci-fi fans.

Though the story now seems well known due to others developing his original themes, his manner of storytelling illustrates his creative mastery. Mr. Underhill is certainly all of us looking for creature comforts at the expense of our self learning mastery through adversity…
