Some of you may not have heard of this awesome author Madeline Ashby. She wrote a KICK ass sci-fi book last year called vN released by my favorite publisher Angry Robot! *All hall the Angry Robot overlords!*
vN was so creepy – I mean come on this robot little girl EATS her grandmother (another robot), then she morphs into a full grown version of herself. It gets progressively weirder from there. You get to see how robots are born…surprisingly a lot like us but out your navel baby instead of your…well you know.
So here it is – the cover to iD, the second Machine Dynasty book. I’m drooling. It looks so creepy and cool. I want to break that guy out of his shell and give him one big old SMOOCH!
THE SECOND MACHINE DYNASTY
Javier is a self-replicating humanoid on a journey of redemption.
Javier’s quest takes him from Amy’s island, where his actions have devastating consequences for his friend, toward Mecha where he will find either salvation… or death.
Releases June 25, 2013 from Angry Robot
Amy Peterson is a von Neumann machine, a self-replicating humanoid robot.
For the past five years, she has been grown slowly as part of a mixed organic/synthetic family. She knows very little about her android mother’s past, so when her grandmother arrives and attacks her mother, little Amy wastes no time: she eats her alive.
Now she carries her malfunctioning granny as a partition on her memory drive, and she’s learning impossible things about her clade’s history – like the fact that the failsafe that stops all robots from harming humans has failed… Which means that everyone wants a piece of her, some to use her as a weapon, others to destroy her.
