Daniel Wilson holds a PhD in Robotics from Carnegie Mellon University. His previous titles include HOW TO SURVIVE A ROBOT UPRISING, as well as five other popular science books. This is his debut novel.
In this artificial intelligence blockbuster, the heroic actions of a handful of characters are told in the form of briefing reports recovered after the Robot Wars that nearly exterminated humanity. This format with its emphasis on survival in battle and full-throttle action will appeal particularly to those who enjoy science-gone-wrong thrillers. (June) (c) Copyright 2011.
