    This short story won the Retro Hugo award for 1943 in 2018.A strange man appeared in radio factory in the 1940s USA and constructed something with an outer appearance of radio phonograph set you know, the old ones, larger and heavier than a modern TV set A family buys the set It appeared to be a kind of household robot, at least at first Later the story turns much sinister.A nice story, as well as several other nominees for the same year Much stronger than modern shorts, nominated this year I guess it is linked to the downfall of fiction magazines and preference for writing 3 volume series instead of short stories.

    Great story later adapted and updated into a really weird movie by Arch Oboler The takeover by tech theme is a tad dated now, but still a fun read for classic SF fans.
