Notes
I, Robot: To Preserve, a Robot novel by Mickey Zucker Reichert based the stories of Isaac Asimov.

Part 3 of the Isaac Asimov's I, Robot series.

3. A robot must protect its own existence as long as such protection does not conflict with the First or Second Law.

2037: Robotic technology has evolved into the realm of self-aware, sentient mechanical entities. But despite the safeguards programmed into the very core of a robot's artificial intelligence, humanity's most brilliant creation can still fall prey to those who believe the Three Laws of Robotics were made to be broken . . . .

N8-C, better known as Nate, has been Manhattan Hasbro Hospital's resident robot for more than twenty years. A prototype who is humanoid in appearance, he was created to interact with people. While some staff accepted working alongside an anthropomorphic robot, Nate's very existence terrified most people, resulting in the robot's being utilized for menial tasks and generally ignored.

Until one of the hospital's physicians is found brutally murdered with Nate standing over the corpse while clutching a blood-smeared utility bar. As designer and programmer of Nate's positronic brain, Lawrence Robertson is responsible for his creation's actions and arrested for the crime.

Susan Calvin knows the Three Laws of Robotics make it impossible for Nate to harm a human being. But to prove both Nate's and Lawrence's innocence, she has to consider the possibility that someone somehow manipulated the laws to commit murder . . . .

MICKEY ZUCKER REICHERT is a working physician and the author of Isaac Asimov's I, Robot trilogy (To Protect, To Obey, To Preserve). She lives in Iowa with her husband and two of their children and divides her time between taking care of her family, writing, practicing medicine, teaching at the local university, and tending the assorted livestock that roam her forty-acre farm.

THE THREE LAWS OF ROBOTICS

1. A robot may not injure a human being or, through inaction, allow a human being to come to harm.

2. A robot must obey any orders given to it by human beings, except where such orders would conflict with the First Law.

3. A robot must protect its own existence as long as such protection does not conflict with the First or Second Law.
