    1. 11 08 I m not exactly sure how I came across this prequel novella, maybe when I saw it it was free on Smashwords and that stood out Even now, almost a year since I bought this, I still consider myself pretty new to online kindle books and am not really willing to pay than 2 for a book that is nothing than some 1s and 0s on a hard drive, a book you can t hold in your hands or display in your library, a book that, if your computer crashes, could be lost forever.It s depressing to think that huma [...]

    2. This is a good primer for the events in Offutt s novel Slipstream and its eventual sequels It s the story of an apocalyptic event that unleashes ZERO, a sentient machine to care for the damaged alternate Earth world of Avalon Like most sentient machines HAL 9000, SkyNet, the Matrix, Megatron ZERO finds it difficult to relate to humans He finally starts to merge his thoughts with some humans, with disastrous consequences.Since it s a short story it moves at a brisk pace, without the typos or othe [...]

    3. An interesting short prequel to Slipstream.In this is a short story, the reader learns about an artificial intelligence called Z.E.R.O who restores a world called Avalon after an apocalypse Later, this A.I ends up merging with a human mind, which causes it to develop a split personality brought out from a fear of dying The dark part of his personality Shadow will do whatever it takes to survive The world of Avalon turns dark in than one way I enjoyed all the details that go into this world and [...]

    4. This fast paced, gripping short story introduces Z.E.R.O an artificial intelligence born of a need to save humanity from extinction.Within this fascinating and complex alternate world, an important factor in the AI understanding of those who need to be rescued, is the merging of human and non human minds But it gets even complicated When the AI eventually assimilates human emotions and develops a split personality, things spin out of controlI enjoyed this prequel, and I m looking forward to rea [...]

    5. This short story by science fiction writer Michael Offutt tells a gripping tale of the origin of the artificial intelligence called Z.E.R.O that plays a critical role in Offutt s science fiction series A CRISIS OF TWO WORLDS This is a quick and fascinating short story that introduces the reader to Offutt s world and his writing style that blends scientific, religious, and mythical elements in a type of gritty sci fi realism THE INSANITY OF ZERO is a great short story to read before SLIPSTREAM, t [...]

    6. A great introduction into the world of Slipstream I also think it s a great science fiction story, but I wrote it.

    7. I ve been meaning to read Offutt s novels for a while now nothing like being a broke student and not being able to buy all the books I want P and came across this novella while looking at the synopses of Offutt s other books When I saw it it was free on Smashwords I jumped at the chance to read it and I m glad I did If the novella is any indication of how good Slipstream and Oculus are, then I can t wait to read them.A common problem with novellas or short stories that serve as prequels or inter [...]

    8. For a short story although it sets up two novels Offutt has since published , Zero is insanely heh busy It s full of big ideas, but doesn t give any of them room to breathe I thought this as I was reading it, and am now fully convinced, that it could have better served Offutt to have released it as an explanation to the books rather than introduction Because for me, it made me zero interested heh in reading It ultimately makes no sense Insane indeed.

    9. An incredibly written speculative fiction piece of an artificial intelligence that has come to save humans from extinction It s fast paced and fascinating to watch the AI struggle with its program Or is it something It s thought provoking and full of wonderful little details.A must read for speculative fiction fans.

    10. Free Kindle download It s apparently a prequel to a novel, but I m not enticed to read the novel after reading this There were some interesting ideas liquid life , but the rather humdrum execution of the story didn t draw me in.

    11. It wasn t what I was expecting, but I enjoyed it Parallel dimensions, super computer programs manipulated by humans It was a great short story that I downloaded from , and it was good enough to send me looking for

    12. I didn t know what to expect and was delightfully surprised I was totally pulled into the story and was able to somehow identify with a computer generated personality, to feel compassion for him I also liked Mr Offutt s writing style I ll definitely be looking into reading of his books.

    13. Typical Sci Fi YA about an AI who grows to develop human emotions and it becomes its undoingHardly 10 pages Super Quick read.
