Book Description


See all titles by Orson Scott Card.

is the breathtaking culmination of nearly 30 years of dreams and visions from Academy Award–winning artist Doug Chiang, who most recently served as design director for the Star Wars prequel movies. The stunning artwork and story line by Chiang are reinforced by text from Orson Scott Card, the master storyteller who penned the wildly popular Alvin Maker saga, as well as Hugo and Nebula Award–winning novels Ender's Game and Speaker for the Dead.

The setting for this fully illustrated science fiction novel is Orpheus, a world that, millennia earlier, was the fourth planet in the solar system. Thousands of years before its destruction, a race of sentient robots ruled over all carbon-based life. All humans, hunter-beasts (large, gorillalike creatures), monkeys, and jodhpurs (massive dinosaurs) that refused to be domesticated were systematically hunted down and killed.

Enter Caps, a man with no memory, who -- along with a sentient monkey named Rend and a wise hunter-beast named Juome -- must somehow figure out a way to stop the robots from destroying all life on the planet. As Caps gets closer to Font Prime, the king of the robots, he begins to recall impossible memories that could put not only himself but also all life forms on Orpheus in jeopardy.

Beautiful, extraordinary, and awe-inspiring, Robota is unique and absolutely amazing. Visit Chiang's web site (www.dougchiang.com, or http://www.dougchiang.com/robota/index.html) for links to short animated Robota teasers that are guaranteed to blow you away.
