Polished Performance — Alastair Reynolds

Polished Performance -- Alastair ReynoldsAvailable in Made to Order: Robots and Revolution — Anthology.

A really good story set aboard a sleeper ship that is flown and managed by robots while all the wealthy humans sleep the long cold sleep.

But something goes wrong with the cooling system for the sleepers and the robots become worried that they’ll be core wiped to cover up the mess when they get to their destination.   Thus begins the cunning plans of the robots to avoid annihilation.

Next up in Alastair’s literary journey is Plague Music, which is actually a Revelation Space story set in Chasm City.

Bye for now.
