Title: The First Angry “Man”

Author: Samuel King

Genre: Science Fiction

Rating: 4 sparks

Reviewer: Ash

Joel has an attitude problem. He’s a sentient AI, capable of creating solid 3-d objects. He’s a salesman, and he’s damn good at what he does. So good he gets a little bit of leeway when it comes to the boss, who hates him. But when Joel’s moodiness pushes his boss a little too far, an unexpected hero steps in to save him—but what will it cost sweet Claire?

Once again, Damnation Books provides readers with an excellent short story. The First Angry “Man” is an interesting, well-written science-fiction story that reminded me of Phillip K. Dick’s short stories. The twist at the end is surprisingly—you definitely don’t see it coming!

The First Angry “Man” is a short, quick read with a lot of depth. King’s writing is smooth and easy to read. He paints a great picture of the mundane daily life, and then peels away the layers to show the reader the darker spots.
