Assault: The Ja-gee In Extremis: Book 3 of the Laner Series

Commodore Arthur Laner and the crew of Peregrine have driven the remnants of the Ja-jee invasion fleet from the Brasilia star system, but it has been a pyrrhic victory. The missile carrier fleet and Swarm fleet are gone. Brasilia is smashed. And the Ja-gee will be back, worse than ever before. Laner and Peregrine must rescue survivors, establish a new base, make salvage into starships, and train the battle groups that will carry the fight to the Ja-gee. That would have been too much as it is. But unlocking the secrets of a captured Ja-gee juggernaught poses more questions than it answers. Assassins wait around every corner. Nepotism puts incompetent officers in critical posts. And the Ja-gee are making their own preparations. Can Humanity survive, or is Laner just delaying the inevitable?

Annihilation Anxiety and Machines

An Anthropology of Robots and AI

This book explores the making of robots in labs at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). It examines the cultural ideas that go into the making of robots, and the role of fiction in co-constructing the technological practices of the robotic scientists. The book engages with debates in anthropological theorizing regarding the way that robots are reimagined as intelligent, autonomous and social and weaved into lived social realities. Richardson charts the move away from the “worker” robot of the 1920s to the “social” one of the 2000s, as robots are reimagined as companions, friends and therapeutic agents.
