The Mad Scientist's Daughter is back! The good people at Saga Press are sending it out into the world with a gorgeous new cover and another shot at robotic greatness.
When Cat Novak was a young girl, her father brought Finn, an experimental android, to their isolated home. A billion-dollar construct, Finn looks and acts human, but he has no desire to be one. He was programmed to assist his owners, and performs his duties to perfection.
His primary task now is to tutor Cat. Finn stays with her, becoming her constant companion and friend as she grows into adulthood. But when the government grants rights to the ever-increasing robot population, Finn struggles to find his place in the world. As their relationship goes further than anyone intended, they have to face the threat of being separated forever.
MSD was originally released by Angry Robot in 2013. It was nominated for the Philip K. Dick Award and made several Best-of-the-Year lists. Io9 called it "one of the most realistic science fiction stories ever told" and the Guardian recommended it for people who loved The Time Traveller's Wife. This time around, it has made its way to a few assorted listicles as well. Check it out:
