£7.99/month after 30 days. Cancel anytime


The uprising of machine consciousness is beautifully terrifying and arouses frightening questions. To what desperate lengths will an android go to fit in? How will we cope with boredom after the machines solve all our problems? Can a robot go insane? Is Artificial Intelligence an existential threat? Are thinking machines our friends? Our enemies? Or both?   

In these tales, you will encounter machines that laugh and cry, and kill and make love, and write bad poetry. You will delve deep into that uncanny valley wherein humans and machines share a common, existential crisis.
