The Soul of the Robot, by Barrington J. Baley, copyright 1974; Condor, March 1978; published by arrangment with Doubleday & Company, Inc; ISBN 0-895160161-1.
I ran across this book as a child, in a local library. It was shelved in the children's section, which, considering some of the content, was probably a mistake. In any case, it was one of the formative science fiction novels of my childhood.
Recently I found out that there was a sequel to this, published many years afterward, and bought a copy.
