    Anyone who knows me knows I love inventiveness, and that s what s on 5 star display here.Not every story in this selection is a full blown winner but most of them are.There is a wry, dark humour in some of these stories, and unlikely courage, and often poignant sadness and tragedy as humanity collides in one way or another with the fruits of their robot AI offspring.There are stories here that will stay with me and I m always thankful to find memorable affective writing.Recommended for anyone wh Anyone who knows me knows I love inventiveness, and that s what s on 5 star display here.Not every story in this selection is a full blown winner but most of them are.There is a wry, dark humour in some of these stories, and unlikely courage, and often poignant sadness and tragedy as humanity collides in one way or another with the fruits of their robot AI offspring.There are stories here that will stay with me and I m always thankful to find memorable affective writing.Recommended for anyone who likes sci fi or robots, and short stories

    I know it s an old complaint, but I do wish GR let us rate on 1 2, or even better, on 1 4 stars For me, thIs book is better than a 3, but not quite a 4 I probably would have gone either with a 3.5 or a 3.75 if I could have The short stories in this anthology hit on a lot of the complex emotional and physical issues that might arise as we advance in robot and artificial intelligence None of the stories are very heavy at all into science or science fiction, but rather look at the human side of I know it s an old complaint, but I do wish GR let us rate on 1 2, or even better, on 1 4 stars For me, thIs book is better than a 3, but not quite a 4 I probably would have gone either with a 3.5 or a 3.75 if I could have The short stories in this anthology hit on a lot of the complex emotional and physical issues that might arise as we advance in robot and artificial intelligence None of the stories are very heavy at all into science or science fiction, but rather look at the human side of things I think I would have given it a higher rating personally if it did hit on the science a littleOtherwise, not a bad collection

    The first couple of stories blew my mind I went through the author s books, adding everything I could find to my wishlist They were very unique and I could feel the characters desperation But the rest of the stories ranged from confusing to boring I ended up feeling disappointed, since the beginning had so much promise.

    Overall, 2.5 stars rounded down There were a couple of good stories, but most were just OK or real stinkers All the stories feature a robot in some fashion Some good , some bad , others just out of control The latter were the scariest there were some really neat ideas in them, but he tried too hard to wring the emotion out usually went on far too long Most would have been better if they d been half the length, sometimes cutting the dross out of the middle, but as often by ending muc Overall, 2.5 stars rounded down There were a couple of good stories, but most were just OK or real stinkers All the stories feature a robot in some fashion Some good , some bad , others just out of control The latter were the scariest there were some really neat ideas in them, but he tried too hard to wring the emotion out usually went on far too long Most would have been better if they d been half the length, sometimes cutting the dross out of the middle, but as often by ending much sooner More often than not, the length added details that didn t work well with the earlier ones or extended them too much I can suspend my disbelief overlook some issues when there s an abrupt end with a good twist, but not when it s hammered into idiocy.Table of Contents Miss Gloria A novel idea for a guardian robot, but it went on too long the end was hammered into idiocy.The Blue Afternoon That Lasted Forever No actual robot, just a father who pretty much is one It didn t work for me since the setting was too ridiculous.Jack, the Determined was disturbing good due to that.The Executor was silly, but kind of fun Good ending.Helmet A neat, horrific idea with an obvious ending that was hampered by too much detail that didn t make sense view spoiler Why bother with the human at all It seems like a lot of resources wasted simply to punish them drive them mad Sadism in the extreme I suppose, but hide spoiler I just couldn t believe it enough for it to work.Blood Memory just grotesque, although the idea behind it was interesting, but it s been done before better.Foul Weather A good idea, but the cause effect didn t make any sense, so that destroyed the story right at the end, a severe disappointment.The Nostalgist good sad about fooling our senses Parasite A Robopocalypse Story Gross horrific, it was very much like the earlier story Helmet in that it didn t make any sense view spoiler Why bother with the human at all It seems like a lot of resources wasted for no logical reason If they d tried to kill the humans, it would have madesense hide spoiler God Mode Interesting rather haunting I think it works better in text which has definite sections that the audio lacked.Garden of Life Short, to the point, narrated by Stephen Rudnicki One of the best of the bunch.All Kinds of Proof Long, rambling, pointless, so boring I wish I hadn t stuck with it Worst of the bunch that s really bad.One for Sorrow A Clockwork Dynasty Story Interesting somewhat spooky.Special Automatic just silly, especially the capture in the middle
