Cover & Synopsis: “Isaac Asimov’s I Robot: To Obey” by Mickey Zucker Reichert

Amazon has the cover art and synopsis of the upcoming novel Isaac Asimov’s I Robot: To Obey by Mickey Zucker Reichert.

Here’s the synopsis:

It is 2036 and robotic technology has evolved into the realm of self aware sentient mechanical entities. Even as humanity contends with the consequences of its most brilliant creation, there are those who have their own plans for the robots: enslavement or annihilation. Susan Calvin is about to enter her second year as a psych resident at the Manhattan Hasbro teaching hospital when she hears her father has been murdered. His death sets her on a trail of discovery which will lead her to question everything she thought she knew about her father and herself.

  1. Not sure what to think about this one. Big fan of Asimov’s robot short stories and the cover and description sound promising. Can anyone tell me about their experience with the author’s work?

    Synopsis says “contents” probably should be “contends”?

  3. No one reviewed the first one, “I Robot: To Protect”?

  4. I am conflicted. Is it fair to call a work “Isaac Asimov’s I, Robot” if it is not written by Isaac Asimov? Heck, extend this to anything: Is it fair to call something “Uncle Bob’s thingamajiggum” if it is not made by uncle Bob?

  5. This appears to be the second book of a proposed trilogy. The first (by the same author) is titled “Isaac Asimov’s I, Robot: To Protect” ( ).
    I’ve found some of the books that take place in Asimov’s extended universe to be pretty good (the Caliban trilogy, the Second Foundation trilogy) but have not read the first book in this series yet.
    The reviews at Amazon are pretty “iffy” and range from good to bad. Guess we’ll see if things pick up with the second book.
