We as new generation people are full of advanced technology like Robots, intelligence spaceships, computer programs, artificial intelligence, and many living creatures. People are often focusing on the new anthology, creators of artificial intelligence and robots. Although our focus is in our new anthology, Mother of Invention, was on the creators of artificial intelligence and robots, several of our authors rose to the challenge of writing in the point of view of the AI. It is a rewarding challenge for the writers if it is done nicely.
The original build a human out of spare parts story! This novel is written by Mark Shelly and in recent years, this novel is reclaimed as the beginning point of science fiction as a genre.
What's interesting about going back to the original novel is that it's not so much about how to create artificial life, but what happens after you've done it, and your creation has critical feedback for you. Like all good science fiction, it's about how science affects the lives of people.
You know a book grabbed you when you've named your devices after its characters.
This book and its successors are deep, themed around conquest and leadership, loss of culture and identity on large and small scales, and delight many readers. But what stands out to me is Leckies treatment of Breq as the protagonist, and thereby as our window into the richly painted setting. Breq is well established within her culture, the Imperial Radch, and she's powerful in many ways but limited in others. Instead of being told that the Radch are a gender-neutral society, we have Breq misgendering people from other cultures because she can't read the cues. This is masterful worldbuilding, operating on as many levels as Breq herself.
One of the most compelling POV voices I've read in years is in this first installment of the Murderbot Diaries. Murderbotwho chooses this name as its own identity, relishing all the associated baggage is a corporate security droid who has developed a security glitch, enabling it to hack its own systems and ignore any orders it does not want to follow.
Murderbot hates humans, loves soap operas, and just wants to be left alone to figure out its own identity and come to terms with its history as a killer of humans who never wants to do that again.
The eponymous Rupetta is one of two narrators in this beautiful novel, which won the James Tiptree Jr. Award in 2013. In an alternate 1619, Rupetta is built of brass, leather, and wood and brought to consciousness by Eloisa woman she first calls her mother. But her world expands over the following four centuries, from a secretive rural existence in Languedoc to life as the nucleus of terrifying political and religious machinations. The second narrator, Henriette, provides a contemporary, and human, counterpoint to Rupettas voice.
As much as this book is an unfolding mystery, it's also a beautiful study of the female gaze. Even as she reluctantly parts with horrific secrets that change the course of history, her gaze never turns away from the women who made and sustain her.
Dreamy, gothic and philosophical, this is steampunk like you've never seen it before.
The trouble with reading SFF is that you end up with amazing life goals that probably will not be attained during your own lifetime. It's bad enough when a favorite book leaves you wanting a dragon librarian to be your best friend, or a magic school to invite you in when you turn eleven and now I need a spaceship who brews tea in my life.
A really good cozy mystery balances rich characters with charmingly creepy murders, and de Bodard hits all the right notes in this wonderful, warm homage to Sherlock Holmes in which our detective is Long Chau, an angry and traumatized scholar, and her Watson is a calm, tea-brewing ship mind.
