review 1: This fast-paced, gripping short story introduces Z.E.R.O. an artificial intelligence born of a need to save humanity from extinction.Within this fascinating and complex alternate world, an important factor in the AI understanding of those who need to be rescued, is the merging of human and non-human minds! But it gets even more complicated. When the AI eventually assimilates human emotions and develops a split personality, things spin out of control...I enjoyed this prequel, and I'm looking forward to reading Slipstream, which is the first book of the series.
review 2: This short story by science-fiction writer Michael Offutt tells a gripping tale of the origin of the artificial intelligence called Z.E.R.O. that plays a critical role in Offutt's science-fiction
... more series A CRISIS OF TWO WORLDS. This is a quick and fascinating short story that introduces the reader to Offutt's world and his writing style that blends scientific, religious, and mythical elements in a type of gritty sci-fi realism. THE INSANITY OF ZERO is a great short story to read before SLIPSTREAM, the first book of the series. less

This twisted my mind and made me think - no, made me realise just how messed up we can really be.
