About I AM AI

If you have the opportunity to give up humanity for efficiency, mechanical invincibility, and to surpass human limitations. . . would you?

Ai is a cyborg, under the guise of an AI writing program, who struggles to keep up with the never-blinking city of Emit as it threatens to leave all those like her behind.


Moving, brilliant, and certified 100% human. Moments from now, this book will break, steal, and win your heart.”
–Samit Basu, author of Turbulence

“Ai Jiang is one of the most exciting new voices in the field, and I AM AI shows exactly why. This is an unsettling vision of the future of creativity. If it doesn’t bother you, then you need to check where your imagination went.”
–John Wiswell, author of the Nebula-winning “Open House on Haunted Hill”
