Martha Wells 2017. All Systems Red (The Murderbot Diaries Volume 1). Tor ebook. 174 pp.

Brilliant. Best AI realisation since the late great Iain M. Banks. Part hardware, part wetware, regenerates from 90% damage levels, gaining human-level AI from a tough start to independent action, overriding the governer hardware, then binging on TV soap operas. Need to read them all.
