Summary

When your loneliness means your work becomes your obsession. What happens when that obsession becomes real? What happens when the virtual becomes flesh? Sci-Fi meets horror in this terrifying exploration of human dependency and dystopian ideas turned upside down. 

One man finds out what happens when the lines between humanity and electronic blur. Is emotion a solely human trait? Or can it be attained? Can a computer have a soul? 

This terrifying novella from the 2016 SIBA award-nominated author Rob Shepherd doesn't hold back the horrifying possibilities of the answers to these questions.

An unexpected gem!

A story about humans and their complex relationship with technology that took me completely by surprise. What started out as a heartfelt story about a man and his AI creation quickly takes a dark turn that I loved (which makes me question my own sanity) and wasn’t expecting. Shepherd writes beautifully and seeing as this was my first book by him, I’ll absolutely be checking out his other work. Highly recommend this one to any horror or even sci-fi lovers.
