Ma Boyong. The Mark Twain Robots. (trsf: The Best New Science Fiction)

Good to see editor Stephen Cass throwing in one completely new (to me) author into the collection. Boyong takes a look at robotics, in an Asimovian take on giving robots the human touch. Surely giving robots a sense of humour would be a good thing? It’s Asimovian in that it could have been one of his stories from the 50s, making it feel a bit out of place in a forward-looking volume published 50 years later.
