Cognitive Dissonance

October 15, 2007

From this interview with Jeanette Winterson:

What do you think about novelists and science?
I hate science fiction.

Almost immediately followed by:

What’s your next book about?
It’s called Robot Love and it’s for kids. A girl builds a multi-gendered robot, which then kills her parents because it sees them mistreat her, so they both go on the run. I’m fascinated by artificial intelligence and where it will lead. These robots couldn’t build anything as bad as us – so why would they keep us?

WTF?

Also, I'm glad someone's finally covering the woefully-neglected theme of artificial beings rising up against humans ...
