Interview: author of vN and iD - Madeline Ashby

"KC: Will you tell us about your new novel, iD, out this month, and its protagonist, Javier? Javier is a self-replicating humanoid. He’s iterated about thirteen times, so he has a bunch of copies of himself running around. He has an intact failsafe, which means he can’t hurt human beings. (At least, not physically.) It also means he tends to fall for human beings — until recently. This book tests his devotion to another humanoid, Amy. And that test takes him on a big journey, where he thinks he’s looking for her but he’s really searching for himself out there on the road" 4 out of 5
