Who is the master and who the machine?
This collection of twenty stories by the Northern Beaches Writers’ Group explores this question with horror, humour, pathos and philosophy. Whether it be in our own place and time, far in the future, the past, or in a universe of their own making, our authors grapple with the interface between humanity and its machines.
Are the things we make ours to command? Will they always be? And who, exactly, is making whom?
