Ellay is only a day old. She knows more than she should. She melts in the rain. She is the first artificial intelligence - the first AI.
She says that a triple set of earthquakes will rock Los Angeles - and kill millions of people. The government doesn't believe her.
The government can't control her. So the only question is: Can Ellay save Los Angeles before the government kills her?
“With ELLAY, Todd McCaffrey steps into his own spotlight. This is the book that establishes him as having his own voice — and it’s a voice worth paying attention to.”
— David Gerrold
Hugo and Nebula Award-winning author
“There are things besides drones to worry about. Automation of everyday systems takes on a new meaning when the systems get smart. Todd McCaffrey’s novel, ELLAY, is a gripping treatment of one way this could work.”
— Vernor Vinge
Hugo Award-winning author of A Fire Upon the Deep
“The most intriguing depiction of a maturing artificial intelligence in Science Fiction. Scientists could learn a lot from Ellay. “
