As much as I'd like them to, zombies do not exist, but there is another relentless force that with little prompting could one day attempt to subjugate the human race: Robots. Thankfully we have men like "Robopocalypse" author Daniel H. Wilson on our side.

The only problem I see here is the assumption that humans would be safe in the water. Hello, robot crabs? I'm grabbing a copy of the book anyway, but come on.
