Julia is a care robot. A technological marvel created in a world not so different from our own. Designed to function with the utmost care and precision, she is charged with looking after an eccentric old professor. Things seem normal at first, but when she starts losing time, her suspicions turn to the old man - and then things really get weird.
Madison Kilian’s beautifully crafted tale brings the horrors of the 20th century face-to-face with the particular threats made possible only by modern technology. In The King in Binary, clever prose and a tightly crafted plot knit together a tale worthy of the old masters themselves.
