About Robosoldiers:

"Despite the punning subtitle, this anthology’s 13 impressive sci-fi shorts, assembled by Lawson, take on the future of military robotics with deadly seriousness... It’s smart, if disquieting, military SF. Readers interested in how Asimov’s Laws of Robotics might play out on the battlefield will be particularly fascinated.."—Publisher's Weekly

"Highly recommended."—Tangent

"Robosoldiers is easily for anyone who loves military sci-fi thrillers, especially if you love depictions of unmanned robots in combat situations."—Upstream Reviews

About the contributors:
“[P]rose as cold and hard as the metal alloy of a tank . . . rivals Crane and Remarque . . .”—Chicago Sun-Times on David Drake

“Brad Torgersen can write something technical and complex, yet still give it real emotional depth. He's one of the most talented authors I've ever read.”—Larry Correia on Brad R. Torgersen

“A well written novel that makes you consider the costs of war in very personal terms.” —SF Signal on T.C. McCarthy

“Shoemaker's story of an artificial life coming to terms with its own emotional world finds its place among the long and varied tradition of explorations of robot–human relations. . . . Recommended for any reader, genre or otherwise, looking for a pleasant and engaging read.”—Booklist on Martin L. Shoemaker
