Silently and Very Fast

Silently and Very Fast - Catherynne M. Valente Beautiful science fiction about creation and souls and what it means to be alive and creative. An AI program who is self-concious and aware gestates in the minds/souls of generations of families. Because when you are creating something new, starting a new culture it takes a long time and what better place to gestate the child of humanity then in the heart and soul of a person? Of course, there are consequences, as life evolves from machines in more then on place. It is a haunting story, told in non-linear fashion. The past and present of the story co-mingling into one twisted creation much like the AI and human family in the story itself. Love this.
