First published as a three part serial in Isaac Asimov's Science Fiction Magazine running from November to Mid-December 1987.

Publisher’s Blurb – Lower Cover

For more than 25 years, numerous attempts were made to adapt Isaac Asimov's classic story-cycle, I, Robot, to the motion picture medium. All efforts failed. The magical, memorable tales of mechanized servitors with positronic brains, and the ways in which such amazing creations would forever alter human society through the justly famous Three Laws of Robotics, defied the most cunning efforts of scenarists and filmmakers.

At last, producers approached the multiple-award-winning author Harlan Ellison to take a crack at this ?impossible? project. Ellison accepted the challenge and produced an astonishing screenplay that Asimov felt would be "The first really adult, complex, worthwhile science fiction movie ever made."

Now, for the first time, that screenplay is presented in book format, brought to scintillating life by the illustrations of exciting new artist Mark Zug. In the introduction by Harlan Ellison, you will learn what happened to I, Robot and why it never reached the screen. Then you decide: Is this not the greatest science fiction movie never made?
