Do YOU remember the Three Laws of Robotics?  Wikipedia details their influence on pop culture.

Just for the record -- all three books are collections of short stories (and all are worth reading today.)

*daha*

I was wondering about that and just posted a comment.

I also was just about to comment that I should probably find and read Robots Have No Tails, because the other two are truly great.

Definitely check out Robots Have No Tails - one of my all-time favorites. Author is Henry Kuttner (Lewis Padgett was one of his many pseudonyms).

I wonder if those other two books are any good.
