My story, “Hu.man and Best,” is set in far-future Africa.
After being passed over for promotion, Kanali Zohra Betts, is on a sentimental journey to southern Africa, which, decades before, was ceded to the Androidal Cognitive Entities (ACE) as part of a peace treaty between AIs and humans. There Betts discovers “Hu.man,” and suddenly finds herself embroiled in what could become an international incident, if she doesn’t handle it, the ACE, and her new commanding officer with finesse and intelligence. This is a story about identity, family, belonging, and what it means to be fully human.
These are all wonderfully imaginative and well-told stories. Check it out today!
