Re: Evil Robot Monkey

Evil Robot Monkey“, by Mary Robinette Kowal presents yet another talking animal for me to fall in love with.

Sly is an intelligent chimp who edges a bit further into humanity because he so desperately needs to lose his self in making things. The story is barely more than a vignette, offering an intense view of what it’s like to be him. The part that really gets to me is the little bit of human kindness at the end.

Kinda makes you go, Awww.
