One down, 19 to go

io9, a pretty cool new sci-fi blog, just posted "The Twenty Science Fiction Novels that Will Change Your Life".

I, Robot (1955), by Isaac Asimov
This collection of linked short stories quite simply changed the way we think about robots. Asimov invented the "three laws of robotics," which are included in so many subsequent tales of humanoid robots and also in the work of robotics engineers.

Unless Will Smith is willing to make 19 more offensively unfaithful movie adaptations, I guess I have some reading to do.
