About the publication

Ghostbot’s lovelorn haikus examine the tenderness of human loss and isolation through the familiar, aloof voice of omniscient, omnipresent automation. At times hilarious, but by and large devastating, this small collection wonderfully warps the sense of sensation itself, rendering grief through the chilly lens of a machine whose obedient and astute observation rings too true, inadvertently becoming the ultimate salute to the most profound of human feelings. Ghostbot is a remarkable and able study of the phenomenon of human pain and thought, as rendered by the chilly voice of a creation made to simulate its maker, while utterly defying its likeness. — Emily Toder
