Last month, to celebrate James L. Cambias's new novel, The Godel Operation, in which a boy and his AI search the billion worlds that orbit our Sun for the girl of his dreams, we asked you to tell us your favorite helpful droid or AI from SF fiction. Congrats to Tammy Fosket! She wins a signed copy of The Godel Operation.
My favorite AI is Minerva from Time Enough for Love by Robert Heinlein. I like her best because when she received the opportunity to become human, she didn't just run off, but she created her sister, Pallas Athene, so her family still had an AI to help them do all the computer stuff.
