Editorial Reviews

Review

"Eating Robots is a strong collection that melds together coherently into a near-future dystopian vision that extrapolates upon and slyly comments on trends and tendencies today. Like all good Science Fiction should." -- Allen Ashley, British Fantasy Society Short Story Competition judge
"This collection offers an insightful, often worrying, set of thought experiments on the possible unintended consequences of near future AI." -- Alan Winfield, Professor of Robot Ethics at UWE, Bristol
--This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.

About the Author

Stephen Oram writes thought provoking stories that mix science fiction with social comment, mainly in a recognisable near-future. As 2016 Author in Residence at Virtual Futures, once described by 'The Guardian' as "the Glastonbury of cyberculture", he was one of the masterminds behind the new Near-Future Fiction series and continues to be a lead curator. He's keen on collaborating with scientists and future-tech people to write short stories that provoke debate about potential futures; the title story of his 'Eating Robots' collection, came from working with the Human Brain Project and Bristol Robotics Laboratory. As a teenager he was heavily influenced by the ethos of punk. In his early twenties he embraced the squatter scene and was part of a religious cult, briefly. He did some computer stuff in what became London's silicon roundabout and is now a civil servant with a gentle attraction to anarchism. He has been published in several anthologies, has two published novels, 'Quantum Confessions' and 'Fluence', and a collection of shorter pieces of work, 'Eating Robots and Other Stories'. --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.
