Sladek, John  
The Reproductive System (alternate title: Mechasm) / The Muller-Fokker Effect / Tik-Tok
The Reproductive System: Wompler's Walking Babies aren't selling like they used to, so the company begins producing self-replicating mechanisms designed to repair intercellular breakdowns. But then the metal boxes begin crawling about the laboratory, feeding voraciously on metal and multiplying.

The Muller-Fokker Effect: Bob Shairp - a writer and dreamer - has agreed to be a guinea pig in a military experiment to find out if his personality can be turned into data and stored on a computer. But a computing error destroys Shairp's physical body, leaving his mind stranded in an encoded world. Can the process be reversed?

Tik-Tok: Something has gone wrong with the circuits that should keep Tik-Tok following Asimov's First Law of Robotics: 'A robot shall not injure a human being, or through inaction allow a human being to come to harm.' While maintaining the appearance of a mild-mannered robot, albeit one with artistic tendencies and sympathy for the robot rights movement, Tik-Tok's real agenda is murderously different.
