The new book I am working on with Scott Tapio is titled:
RISE OF THE MACHINES: Robots, Androids and Cyborgs Invade Cinema
It will be about the evolution of robots, androids, artificial intelligence, cyborgs, etc in cinema and television. From as early as Metropolis we will cover the beginnings of appearance of robots, even automatons in film and move on to present, analyzing everything from their visual appearance to interaction with humans (with plenty of forays into sex and relationships with artificial beings in the movies). It will include all the camp, Lost in Space, Creation of the Humanoids and atomic age films, Japanese films from RoboGeisha to 2046, and everything else like Stepford Wives, Star Wars, Battlestar Galactica, Robocop, Alien, Terminator and of course the incomparable Blade Runner. Of course we'll include a beautiful filmography with as many movie posters as we can squeeze in. It will be SUBLIME.
