Lovelace had been in a body for twenty-eight minutes, and it still felt every bit as wrong as it had the second she woke up inside it.

Shortlisted for the Arthur C. Clarke Award 2017


Lovelace was once merely a ship's artificial intelligence.

When she wakes up in an new body, following a total system shut-down and reboot, she has to start over in a synthetic body, in a world where her kind are illegal. She's never felt so alone. But she's not alone, not really.


Pepper, one of the engineers who risked life and limb to reinstall Lovelace, is determined to help her adjust to her new world. Pepper knows a thing or two about starting over.

Together, Pepper and Lovey will discover that, huge as the galaxy may be, it's anything but empty.
