WAR WITH THE ROBOTS

Panther SF paperback, 1976. Cover painting by Angus McKie.

"IT'S A MAN'S WORLD - BUT A ROBOT'S FUTURE... 
One day the tough, dangerous, dirty jobs will be done by robots: 
- superhumanly strong and invulnerable soldiers, with a built-in killer instinct 
- miners and sandhogs who can work on distant planets too deadly for man 
- incorruptible judges, fearing neither political pressure or criminal vengeance 
- librarians with total knowledge instantly available. 
Harry Harrison has painted a chilling yet piercingly prophetic picture of the Robot Age: a time when man's 'slave' machines have learned their own strength - and the weaknesses of their masters!"
