The Colour of Robots is James Marson’s first novel. It’s a science fiction adventure with a touch of humour.

┬áIt is a hundred years since the War with the Robots and the universe is a much safer place thanks to the Empire’s ‘Anti-Robot’ directive outlawing anything with more artificial intelligence than that required to operate a dustpan. So it comes as something of a surprise to junior planetary engineer Karl Dougan when he discovers two fully-functioning, supposedly long-extinct robots on a remote planet.

His plan of quietly ignoring this worrying event doesn’t quite pan out as he expects, setting in motion an adventure involving space pirates, a pretty and determined journalist, a rogue battle computer, and seven very driven, acutely intelligent, robots…

What Amazon readers are saying about THE COLOUR OF ROBOTS:

“… a great first novel…”
“…carefully written with excellent observational humour.”
“…kept me awake until 04:00, couldn’t put it down”
“… combines well-plotted adventure with an archetypal story, spiked with laugh out loud asides.”
