A murderous android discovers itself in All Systems Red, a tense science fiction adventure by Martha Wells that interrogates the roots of consciousness through Artificial Intelligence.

"As a heartless killing machine, I was a complete failure."

In a corporate-dominated spacefaring future, planetary missions must be approved and supplied by the Company. Exploratory teams are accompanied by Company-supplied security androids, for their own safety.

But in a society where contracts are awarded to the lowest bidder, safety isn’t a primary concern.

On a distant planet, a team of scientists are conducting surface tests, shadowed by their Company-supplied ‘droid — a self-aware SecUnit that has hacked its own governor module, and refers to itself (though never out loud) as “Murderbot.” Scornful of humans, all it really wants is to be left alone long enough to figure out who it is.

But when a neighboring mission goes dark, it's up to the scientists and their Murderbot to get to the truth.

Diaries of Funnybot
This cover is absolutely awesome but also super misleading considering book's plot. Which was not disappointing in no way. I think I found my next favourite ongoing series and I can't wait for the next episode. The plot of this one was super simple. Security Unit, an android with half robotic, half organic body, calling itself cutely a "murderbot" (that's its job) has hacked its governing system and now has gone rogue... What happens next is this whole novel which you should definitely try, if you're into fast, funny and short sci-fi.
