We, Robots Summary

We, Robots: Artificial Intelligence in 100 Stories by Simon Ings

Artificial intelligence in 100 stories. To ready us for the inevitable, here are 100 of the best short stories ever written - most of them by humans - about artificial intelligence. Simon Ings has assembled anthropomorphic cyborgs and invertebrate AIs, thuggish metal lumps and wisps of manufactured intelligence so delicate that if you blink you might miss them in the new overlord of all robot literary compendiums. It's Alive! is about inventors and their creations. Following the Money drops robots into the day-to-day business of living. Owners and Servants considers the human potentials and pitfalls of owning and maintaining robots. Changing Places looks at what happens at the blurred interface between human and machine minds. All Hail the New Flesh waves goodbye to the physical boundaries that once separated machines from their human creators. Succession considers the future of human and machine consciousnesses - in so far as we might have one. With 100 stories spanning an order of magnitude more pages, Simon Ings's We, Robots is the new overlord of all robot literary compendiums. Welcome it.

We, Robots Reviews

A glorious delve into the many guises of robots and artificial intelligences. There is a wealth and a range in the stories that have clearly been chosen with some thought... This book is a joy and a triumph. There's nothing artificial about this one - We, Robots shows us a book not afraid to show us the genre's past but more importantly where it is going. Recommended most highly, and definitely one of my books of the year' * SFF World *
We, Robots: Artificial Intelligence in 100 Stories is the new cyborg overlord of literary compendiums... The scope and variety of this short story collection is impressive' * Independent *

You should read Simon Ings' iD Magazine. 'Simon Ings, my telepathic abilities tell me, has a serious career ahead of him' Guardian. 'A grim, gripping and unrelenting tale' * Irish Independent, on Painkillers *
