Robots. Intelligent machines, usually bearing at least some resemblance to humans, performing the routine drudgeries of life and freeing mankind for the pursuit of nobler goals. Karel Čapek conceived the term. Isaac Asimov codified their behavior, then spent the next fifty-plus years figuring out ways to get around his rules. Phillip K. Dick humanized them, chillingly.

Times of Trouble (A Time Travel Anthology)
TIME TRAVEL IS THE ULTIMATE DO-OVER.
It’s funny how second chances usually wind up being just another opportunity to make the same mistakes, though.
The authors represented in the collection you now hold were tasked to create grim and gritty tales of time travel gone horribly wrong.
They have done so, in some wildly varied ways.
There are stories of rare and exceptional beauty; stories of dark, otherworldly horror; stories of white-knuckle thrills and even some that will make you laugh out loud.
In fact, if you pay close attention, in at least one of these adventures, you’ll realize that no time travel at all ever takes place.
All of them will take you places--and times--you’ve yet to be, and make you think about the experience.
