Robot Overlords (paperback)


SKU: N/A Category:



Three years ago, Earth was conquered by a force of robots from a distant world. This was their one rule. Ignore the order to self-isolate and you’re sure to be vaporised by a massive robot Sentry, or a crawling Sniper, or a flying Drone. That’s if the vast Cube doesn’t incinerate you first. But Sean Flynn is convinced that his father – an RAF pilot who fought in the war – is still alive. And when he and his gang figure out a way to break the robots’ curfew, they begin an adventure that will pit them against the might of the ROBOT OVERLORDS.

This fast-paced, thrilling novelisation is based on the hit British film starring Sir Ben Kingsley (IRON MAN THREE), Gillian Anderson (THE X-FILES) and Callan McAuliffe (THE GREAT GATSBY). A perfect companion to the movie, it expands on the story with additional action, characters, and a special peek behind the scenes.

This paperback edition also includes Mark’s shoot diaries and an exclusive short story: The Mediator Prototype

If you choose the “Signed & Dedicated” option, Mr Stay can sign and dedicate the book as per your request (keep it clean!). You will also receive a free Woodville bookmark.


Fun, entertaining read with snappy, realistic dialogue…. a blockbuster pace that will entertain early teens upwards and sci-fi fans alike ― Following the Nerd

Robot Overlords is an easy read, but it’s not a light tale. Deliciously scary in all the right places, it’s a compelling book. Like all good novelisations, it adds an extra dimension to a story already told in another medium. Recommended, especially if you like giant robot-driven dystopias. ― Starburst

Enjoyable, entertaining, and sometimes surprisingly dark, Robot Overlords is a great read whether you’re a young adult, a young-at-heart adult, or even a miserable old man in an adult’s body (like me!) ― The Cult Den

Such a cracking story – one which might literally blow your socks off ― The Book Plank

His characters come to life instantly, practically jumping off the page, all you need to know to care about them sketched in a few simple but always well-chosen words ― Crime Review

The Robot Overlords novel by Mark Stay is more fun than a mongoose rave ― David M. Barnett, Calling Major Tom
