Meet the Author

Aaron was born in 1988 and raised in Massachusetts. During childhood he lived in the small town of Pepperell and developed an early interest in science fiction and fantasy. His parents fostered this interest, reading and gifting him the SF/F greats. When he started struggling in grade school Language Arts classes his Mom and Dad offered him a deal: for each writing project or story he completed, submitted to them for editing and later revised he'd earn a small amount per word. Suddenly Aaron was writing energetically and even when the deal ended a couple years later he continued to improve.Since then he has completed and thrown away his first novel, nearly finished his second and completed several short stories. Most recently he's begun e-publishing these shorts through smashwords.com and hopes in the near future to move his work to print.

Very neat concept for this novelette. First person perspective from a disembodied AI's viewpoint - I love it! It's a fun intellectual exercise to contemplate how an advanced AI might internally process its interactions (they are pretty well thought-out in this case), and the resultant personality of this one carries the tale nicely. It's held back a little by a fair amount of mechanical errors, but that's just par for the course in a newly released independent book - it's certainly worth reading, regardless!

The conversation between AI & prisoner was well written, kept my interest. Ending was vague. If some else has ideas what it means, Id like to hear them.
