Caves of Steel is a book by Isaac Asimov, the first book in the Robot series. The novel takes place three thousand years into the future, when humans have started living in space with their robot helpers. Basically, the Earthlings hate the Spacers, and vice versa. The main theme of the novel is a murder of a Spacer, which is investigated by a human detective, Elijah Bailey and his robot partner R. Daneel Oliver. Here is my teaser for this week, from the book:
“Most Earthmen were Medievalists in one way or another. It was an easy thing to be when it meant looking back to a time when Earth was the world and not just one of fifty. The misfit one of fifty at that.”
