Product Details


“A thoughtful choice for those who enjoy genre-bending, boundary-pushing sf.”
– Library Journal


vN is a clever book with a wonderful ending by a writer who is well versed in AI technology, who can evoke sympathy with a few well-turned phrases and tells a satisfyingly complex story.”
– The Guardian

“Ashby intelligently and brutally explores the way people are willing to abuse, devalue and destroy any form of consciousness they’re able to define as ‘other’, while the robots challenge the limits of love, devotion and life after death.”
– Toronto Globe & Mail

vN is a strikingly fresh work of mind-expanding science fiction.” – Charlie Jane Anders,

“The world that Ashby envisions is fascinating, filled with strange ideas, nifty technology, and some rather mature implications.”

“It’s perfect that this is coming out from Angry Robot, because these are some pretty angry robots.”
– Amazing Stories 

vN is a strikingly fresh work of mind-expanding science fiction.”

“vN fuses cyberpunk with urban fantasy to produce something wholly new. There’s a heavy kicker in every chapter. Zombie robots, vampire robots, robots as strange and gnarly as human beings. A page-turning treat.”
– Rudy Rucker, author of the Ware Tetralogy

“With an excellent grasp of her subject matter and much to say within the genre, Ashby looks set to become one of the most important new voices in this particular branch of SF, and I for one shall be awaiting her next book with great interest. Download to your system at the earliest opportunity.”
– The British Fantasy Society

vN is a striking debut, one part tech thriller and one part adult fairy story … The best sci-fi not only entertains but also educates and informs, and vN manages all three effortlessly.”
– The Eloquent Page

vN is an excellent book, carefully thought out, in a world that could be our future with only a few technological breakthroughs. The plot is believable and gripping, with a surprising ending. It was impossible to put down.”
– The Geek Syndicate
