    Editorial Reviews

    From Publishers Weekly
    Williamson's sci-fi tale of a battle between human beings and a race of humanoids they have created first appeared in Astounding magazine in the 1940s.
    Copyright 1995 Reed Business Information, Inc.


    Review
    "Without doubt one of the most important science-fantasy books of its decade."--Damon Knight

    "Williamson's best novel, a classic dystopia and the single best work on robot[s]...outside of the world of Isaac Asimov."--Twentieth-Century Science Fiction Writers



    Book Description
    On the far planet Wing IV, a brilliant scientist creates the humanoids--sleek black androids programmed to serve humanity.

    But are they perfect servants--or perfect masters?

    Slowly the humanoids spread throughout the galaxy, threatening to stifle all human endeavor. Only a hidden group of rebels can stem the humanoid tide...if it's not already too late.

    Fist published in Astounding Science Fiction during the magazine's heyday, The Humanoids--sceince fiction grand master Jack Williamson's finest novel--has endured for fifty years as a classic on the theme of natural versus artificial life.

    Also included in this edition is the prelude novelette, "With Folded Hands," which was chosen for the Science Fiction Hall of Fame.
