"A Good Home" by Karin Lowachee I read this story from the anthology "The Best Science Fiction of the Year Vol. 2" edited by Neil Clarke. This story was a touching story of two war vets. What made them slightly different is that one of them was an artificial intelligence. The other was crippled from war and bound to a wheelchair. With time, patience, and a little understanding these two war vets came to grips with the horrors of war together. During the time the story took place wars were being fought by androids of sorts. They were sentient beings, but created by humans. They were programmed with everything needed for war, but were also given emotion. For one android the horrors of war became too much for him.
I love fantasy, sci-fi, dark fantasy, steampunk, horror, and thrillers. I try to review a short story, novelette, or novella at least every week. I also review novels every now and then.
