Adam Link Robot

By Eando Binder
Cover artist: Jack Gaughan*

"I am a true robot. Some of you humans still have doubts, it seems. I am made of wires and wheels, not flesh and blood."

So starts the "amazing" first-person confession of one Adam Link, robot. This story, originally titled I, Robot (an inspiration for Isaac Asimov's first robot story and the title of his famous collection of robot stories), is part of this 1965 collection of ten stories written by Otto Binder using the penname Eando Binder and originally published in Amazing Stories between the years of 1939 and 1942. Sadly, the name of Adam Link and his author are unknown by the general public in favor of better-known mass-media robots of TV and movie fame. But long before those robots captured the public's mind with their human-like mannerisms, Eando Binder had created the model for the robot that yearned to be something more than a mechanical replication of man.

*Note: We suspect the artist for this cover is Jack Gaughan but are unable to verify it. If you have any info be sure to send it to us via the feedback link. We'll be talking more about Gaughan in the coming weeks (regarding covers we're sure that he painted).
