Description

When Gabe created the world's first sentient program, Pi, he thought things couldn't get better.

Now he's pretty sure things couldn't get worse.

After a colossal error on Gabe's part, Pi turns into a binary monster along the lines of HAL, GLaDOS, and SHODAN. As she goes on the rampage, the only thing rendering her mostly harmless is the fact that she doesn't fully understand the physical world...yet.

But she's learning.

And unless Gabe quickly finds a way to rein her in or shut her down, the next time Pi starts a fire, it won't just be his empty house that goes up in flames.

If you're a fan of Douglas Adams, Christopher Moore, or Neal Stephenson, then this is a novel for you.

Review quote

"In this delightfully geeky novel, Surlak-Ramsey presents Gabe believably as a control freak obsessed with his own divinity...The humorous narrative nevertheless remains superbly entertaining, even if you don't know bits from bytes. A clever computer romp that should charm readers like a fairy tale." -- Kirkus Reviews

"I loved the characters and their geekiness (and the non-geeky characters, especially Gabe's sister...she made me laugh at her computer ineptness, especially juxtaposed against Gabe). It's great to watch Pi (the AI) change as she learns more and more. The dialogue was quick, snappy, and natural...Take a chance on this witty, easily read gem. I'm glad I did." -- Long and Short Reviews
