Overview

It starts with Software, where rebel robots bring immortality to their human creator by eating his brain.
Under the pretext of having a fit over Joke and Corey, Darla got herself into Whitey�s arms and whispered into his ear: �We have to kill the aliens.�
She could tell from Whitey�s body language that he understood and agreed. And when Corey came back with the four moldies and the needler and the O.J. ugly stick, Darla sensed that Corey too knew what had to be done.
Corey and Whitey led the way off down the hall toward Corey�s studio, followed by the four moldies, with Darla in the rear. Trying hard to keep her voice even, Darla made housewifely commentary on the features of the isopod.
�That�s nice to see your giant marijuana plants are doing so well in the grove out there, Corey. How tall are they? And I see you�ve still got your velvet paintings up. I always liked that one of the nuking of Akron.�
�Yeah,� said Corey. �I put a lot of myself into that picture. I went to high school in Akron. I hated it, of course, but sometimes I�m sort of sorry those Yaqui rubber tappers blew it up. Odd as it sounds, when I lived in Akron, I used to dream about blowing it up myself. Like precognition. In one dream I was in the middle of this big Akron stadium with a white-painted fat-boy H-bomb and there were thousands of people in the seats watching me and they were chanting, �Light the Bomb!� Look, see how I worked a shattering stadium into the corner of the picture?�
