Publisher’s Blurb – Lower Cover
Isaac Asimov’s famous Three Laws, which provide far-future humanity with omni-compliant robots, ultimately led to a vision of hell -- human existence with all challenge and conflict removed. Thus Asimov proposed the New Laws to Roger MacBride Allen, laws which endow humanity with helping hands, but not slaves.

On Inferno the tensions between Spacer and Settler are as strong as ever, but now the majority of robots are working on terraforming rather than as personal servants. Caliban and Prospero, New Law robots, and their fellows have settled in Valhalla, a city in the northern Utopia region. Unbeknownst to them, the Governor is planning to bring down the Comet Grieg on Utopia in order to bring about changes essential for further terraforming. Valhalla and its inhabitants are expendable . . .
