In the lethal heat of post-apocalyptic Arizona, a robot meets his maker. About 14 thousand words or a 70 minute read.
I give it 5 stars for good writing, being pro-robot and with mortal robots.
One trope I dislike is the ‘first super-human AI starts a world war’, but otherwise is a good read. I like the focus on robot reproduction and how repair is a part of life.
It is the second story in Robot Chronicles, can get the whole set for under $5 as an ebook from Amazon.
