Synopsis: Remotely operated artificial intelligences are cut from their operators by a solar storm. They have to face madness caused by data corruption. Sophia’s avatar finds that she is self-aware and has to outwit the other avatars egoisms.
Review: A poetic story which I nearly lost in the first half because of Jones‘ nerd language. I liked the trope of telepresence which contrasts many other forms of SF needing a hero in person to get in dire situations. Without the weak first half of the story, I’d have given it at least 4 stars.
