William Kowinski, a journalist for the the North Coast Journal in Humboldt County, CA has reviewed How to Build An Android.
With minimal jargon, Dufty makes the tech as well as the personalities part of the story flow, an admirable example for a growing genre covering a dominating industry: adventures in Tech World. He ably and appropriately integrates Philip K. Dick’s biography and major works into the story. The story itself confirms the classic relationship of sci-fi and new tech, as well as suggesting how surprisingly far toward the androids of fiction current technology is taking us. In focusing on Hanson (basically a sculptor and a hardware tinkerer) and Olney (a software guy) he chronicles another relationship of art and science. Fascinating.
