What's Become Of Screwloose? Sep 12, 1971. This latest collection of Ron Goulart's servomechanistic horror stories deals mainly with the world that Norbert Wiener made. The author's characters fight a rearguard action against homicidal household appliances, android schoolteachers, and in one instance-a fully automated, talking and libidinous house. With the lLawmobile on patrol, justice is truly blind. Mr. Goulart oils each mechanical debacle with strategically placed drops of wit. ■. Advertisement.

It's easy to sympathize with the Monte Cristo Complex of the fiend who dismantles androids, and perhaps lucky for Goulart that his typewriter doesn't have a temper

It's easy to sympathize with the Monte Cristo Complex of the fiend who dismantles androids, and perhaps lucky for Goulart that his typewriter doesn't have a temper. Among their goofier collaborations are spoofs of Spillane and Edgar Rice Burroughs, a cybernetic shaggy dog, and more about Jolson of the Chameleon Corps.

Ron Goulart has written more than 70 novels, most of them science fiction or fantasy, as well as over a dozen non-fiction titles, including Comic Book Culture and the classic history of the pulps, Cheap Thrills: An Informal History of the Pulp Magazines. I saw his name countless times in the paperback racks where I hunted for science fiction as a teen, on slender DAW volumes like Calling Dr. Patchwork, The Panchronicon Plot, and Big Bang. Even Screwloose, the lethal robot villain of What’s Become of Screwloose?, is entirely logical and even apologetic, in his own diabolical way. There’s a fine mix of action and humor in these stories, and a love of invention in all its forms.

Copywriter Jim Benning's wife, Joanna, is a model: nervous, beautiful, and prone to meltdowns. His brain scrambled, Jake tries to clear himself of a murder charge. Jake Pace comes to on the floor of a dungeon, where a robot jailer is killing rats. In a last-ditch attempt to save their marriage, she agrees to a few sessions with a psychiatrist in San Ignacio-a quack whose psychobabble is more sinister than it appears.
