Publisher's Summary

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.

11 Intriguing Stories Audible was AWESOME

Talk about twists! The author has an imagination gone wild.
What if you were dying and could make a synthetic version of yourself so that your husband and your #2 could create a happy home for your only child?
Or your best friend fell in love with a robot? Or, crazy as it sounds...you did?
Out of all of these amazing stories...I cast my vote for Continue Program being my favorite...or maybe She Has a Lovely Voice...
Difficult to choose just one!
