Jim was a runaway robot in search of freedom. Together they embarked upon the adventure of a lifetime! Mark Twain's classic text has been a lightning rod for controversy since its first publication in the late nineteenth century, and has consistently been one of the most banned books in schools and libraries across the United States. In an effort to fight the censorship of this iconic piece of literature, editors Gabriel Diani and Etta Devine have removed every instance of the word "n-word" and replaced it with the word "robot." Complete and unabridged (except for bits here and there), with E.W. Kemble's original illustrations painstakingly altered by artist Denise Devine to include robots, this bold new edition makes Twain's timeless work accessible to a whole new generation of readers ... without being bogged down by what he wanted to say about racism....

It was originally spread out through the comments in Susanna's review, where we were fucking with the "author" of this "robotic version" of Huck Finn where they've replaced the word "nigger" with "robot" to make a point about...robot discrimination I guess? Feel free to add your own zombie classic in the comments! It's fun!My review of actual Huck Finn is here.
Make the burning stop! (This Comment solely about the "Robotic Edition.")
This shelving is solely for the "Robotic Edition."
In the words of the editors:"Robots have a long history in literature and popular culture of being used as a metaphor for slavery and oppression. Replacing the black characters with robots in the book will maintain the integrity of MOST of Mark Twain's themes. It will also make the book more attractive to racists who wouldn't ordinarily read a book sympathetic to the plight of African Americans in the Antebellum South. And this is really about getting more people to read the book."That is just what they have done. This book is "Adventures of Huckleberry Finn", word-for-word EXCEPT that any and all references to slaves have been replaced with terms such as Robot and Automaton. The characters even keep their dialects. The few other changes are minor, as in the instances where "fuel" is substituted for "food".The editors say that this new version of Mark Twain's "The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn" isn't bogged down with what Mark Twain was trying to say about racism. I say, give it a hundred years, and see what the robots have to say about it.
