Micro Mention "All Systems Red"

Martha Wells

“All Systems Red” by Martha Wells might be short, but it’s incredible. The main character, a murder-bot, is a charmingly hilarious killing machine who frankly is more interested in watching soap operas than death and destruction.

The concept of this story tickled me, a self-aware, unshackled AI that is honestly just too much of a slacker to be a mass murderer of humans. Also, one that is good at his job, which is protecting people, in all irony, is hilarious considering what he is, a murder robot. So I don't think I can put more of a fine point on this; I loved this story.
