Paperback / softback


What do Robots dream of?
Four leading science fiction authors explore this question in four stand-alone novellas.


Function through Malfunction:

Unit 5709 is a success – a new high-line model of robot that works precisely as intended. The military are thrilled and 5709 is soon deployed on the battle field. But all is not as it seems; the robot prefers to be called 'Niner' and is unique, working only because of an undetected glitch. Every further model fails.

Ren Warom deftly guides us through Niner's many lives, from military killing machine, to body double, to a lady's companion and jailor, to scrap dealer. Society changes around it, as Niner finally comes to terms with its nature and its place in the world.
