Back cover text

"Mr. Williamson's adventure is imagination run riot. It is prophecy carried to its utmost as well as a maze of manufactured extensions of present-day scientific knowledge, which is close enough to the occult to mystify. His prose, abounding with such nuggets as rhodomagnetism, telekinesis and teleportation, is intriguing...."
A.H. Weiler, New York Times

"This study in the relation between man and his manufactured servants is thoughtful, suspenseful, imaginative fiction."
Anthony Boucher

The Humanoids ranks today, along with Isaac Asimov's robot stories, as the most authoritative and valid exploration of man's relation to the creatures of his technology. It also remains one of the most exciting science-fiction books ever written.
