    Quite possibly the best Science fiction I've read all Year, the Automatic Detective.

    Everyone Read it! it's got action, aliens, and romance (sort of)

    let's see.... A. Lee Martinez. The book itself is about a robot who becomes, well, a detective of sorts.

    I see Tim appended some info'. :cool:

    Do you watch anime? If so, be on the lookout for a series from a few years ago named The Big O. There was an episode arc where a series of events was taking place that dealt with violent attacks on the robotic residents of the city. Sent in to help investigate the crimes is a police detective who happens to be... a robot. In the end the robot detective learns more about humanity then perhaps his human counterparts.

    ... and, yes, I'll be keeping an eye out for The Automatic Detective on my next trip to the local book store. Is it part of a series or a stand-alone title?

    I personally would hope that it becomes a series, but the author apparently doesn't like doing serial features. personally, I'd be happy if it became a series, i need more Megaton in my life.
