NAKED CAME THE ROBOT. [New York]: Popular Library, . Small octavo, pictorial wrappers. First edition. Popular Library 20755-8. Sinister alien androids intend to take over Earth's mechanical work force and conquer the world. "Daft satire about a world where almost everyone is enlisted for military service or works for the warlike 'Economy.' The protagonist sides with the downtrodden robots. For some reason, he is named after the hero of Stephen Crane's THE RED BADGE OF COURAGE (1895) -- and other literary references abound, overburdening the novel. Too zany to be effective as social satire." - Pringle, The Ultimate Guide to Science Fiction, second edition (1995), p. . A fine copy. (#146316).
