John W Campbell Memorial Award Best Novel (nominee)
Something has gone very seriously wrong with Tik-Toks "asimov circuits". They should keep him on the straight and narrow, following Asimovs First Law of Robotics: "a robot shall not injure a human being, or through inaction allow a human being to come to harm." But they dont. While maintaining the outward appearance of a mild-mannered robot, albeit one with artistic tendencies and sympathy for the robot rights movement, Tik-Toks real agenda is murderously different. He seems intent on injuring - preferably fatally - as people as possible. Almost inevitably, a successful career in crime and general mayhem leads to a move into politics and Tik-Tok becomes the first robot candidate for Vice President of the United States.
