  • The Reproductive System [top]
    First published in 1968 in Great Britain by Victor Gollancz in hardback (UK 1st Edition)
    Reprinted in 1977 by Panther Science Fiction (Granada Publishing Ltd), pbk

Story: 'The moronic owners of a moribund baby-doll factory con the US government into providing massive research funds for the development of self-reproducing machines. But the successful reproductive system gets out of hand; and the little machines multiply with parthenogenetic frenzy, gobbling up all the metal and energy they can find, and nibbling away at the entire fabric of our mass-produced civilisation. As the devastation increases, John Sladek mercilessly exposes the vulnerable intellectual and emotional clichés by which we live'
