“No thinking thing should be another thing’s property, to be turned on and off when it is convenient.”
This weeks theme: A cover featuring artificial intelligence.
The theme this month is technically “Robot” not “Artificial Intelligence” But I have the perfect book to go with the quote and he isn’t actually a robot!
My Choice: We Are Legion (We Are Bob)
Why is this book the perfect choice to go with the quote? This is a section taken directly from the synopsis:
Bob wakes up a century later to find that corpsicles have been declared to be without rights, and he is now the property of the state. He has been uploaded into computer hardware and is slated to be the controlling AI in an interstellar probe looking for habitable planets.

One of these covers actually has robots on it! Tho in the book he is a spaceship not a Robot, so the cover doesn’t really fit.
While I absolutely love both these covers, I am partial to the blue because its my favorite color.
