I, Robot Summary We'll break down the plots of the stories one-by-one, but first, a super-short, super-generalization of these stories: something goes wrong (or seems to go wrong) with a robot and three scientists—Susan Calvin and the Powell-Donovan team—figure out what the problem is and fix it (or figure out that it doesn't need fixing), and then everyone loves robots.

That might not sound like a good title, but it's a better fit. Isaac Asimov became a published fiction author in with Pebble in the Sky – the first of the Galactic Empire series.
