Publisher’s Blurb – Lower Cover
NDR 113

Just another positronic brain encased in a humanoid-looking housing. Manufactured in metal and plastic by the United States Robots and Mechanical Men Corporation. And intended to perform household duties in a world only just becoming used to the idea of robots.

But NDR 113 is no ordinary robot.

From his beginnings as a humble servant, Andrew Martin, as he becomes known, discovers fame as a sculptor, writer and scientist. He wins his freedom, changes his body, becomes rich. Only one thing eludes him: his final goal, humanity.

THE POSITRONIC MAN, the third brilliant Asimov/Silverberg collaboration following NIGHTFALL and CHILD OF TIME, is based on Isaac Asimov's classic short story, THE BICENTENNIAL MAN.
