I’m loving the trend of non-fiction about speculative fiction, so I’m really excited to bring you a giveaway for a gorgeous book all about robots! Also if you are a fan of Scissor Sisters, Ana Matronic is apparently a big fan of robots, fun fact ;-).
Explore the Robot Universe, and discover the hundred most epic androids and automatons from myth, through popular culture, to modern-day machines. Robot aficionado Ana Matronic—vocalist with world-famous band Scissor Sisters—explores their creation, design, purpose, and how they have comforted, fascinated, or terrified us across the ages and galaxies, profiling key sidekicks, servants, saviors, murder machines, cyborgs, and others in every genre. In-depth features cover special focus topics, such as robots in art and fashion, video games and comics, and music. This richly illustrated collection deftly shows how we have defined and redefined robots, why they capture our imagination, and why they’re here to stay, ending with a look at real-life robots from early prototypes to what lies in our robotic future.
This giveaway is open to US/Canadian addresses as per Sterling’s policies, the winner will have 48 hours to respond, and I’ll be checking entries so be sure to include the correct information.
