ABOUT THE READERS:
DENA RASH GUZMAN is a poet, playwright, beekeeper and founding editor of the journal UNSHOD QUILLS. Rumors of her involvement with China’s giant robot program are somewhat exaggerated.
VINCE KRAMER is the author of DEATH MACHINES OF DEATH, a satirical novel which perpetuates harmful stereotypes about our mechanical pals who are fun to be with.
Comedian PHIL SCHALLBERGER’S slideshows, such as HOBO TOM’S GUIDE TO KILLING ROBOTS IN YOUR DREAMS, have warmed the hearts of thousands (of humans) and fed the nightmares of millions (of robots). For this special evening, he has promised a “robot-neutral” performance for the flesh-neutral audience.
Famous Author MYKLE HANSEN is the author of “HELP! A BEAR IS EATING ME!” and “EYEHEART EVERYTHING”. His new SF-erotic-romance novel “I, SLUTBOT” tells the story of the first robotic porn star, and how she comes to rule Earth. Review copies available — contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
ABOUT I, SLUTBOT:
I, SLUTBOT tells the twenty-three-thousand year life story of the world’s first robot porn star, and how she becomes Empress of Earth.
“With ‘I, Slutbot’, Mykle Hansen has become our new Vonnegut. Like Indianapolis’ favorite son, Hansen makes us laugh and wows us with brainy satire, but, more importantly, delivers a stealth dose of human frailty and beauty just when we need it most. ‘I, Slutbot’ is Player Piano for the cyborgs and typewriters set.”
-Patrick Wensink, Bestselling author of Broken Piano for President
ABOUT THE NEW 2014 ROBOT LINEUP FROM MSL:
“The phrase ‘autonomous kill-droids‘ is so loaded with prejudice,” said Mr. Hansen in a statement to the press. “To me, they’re just our mechanical pals who are fun to be with.” He took pains to reassure the public that his newly minted robot overlords, although armed with lasers and trained to crush human skulls in their mighty iron pincers, are actually quite shy and gentle.
