Works in the Paradisi Chronicles
“Nuking the Noomies”
in Chronicle Worlds: Paradisi
It seemed like a good idea: send replicating minerbots to frozen Petra, return years later, and load up the riches. When a minerbot attacks the SS Jim Pruett, the fate of the Paradisi Project rests on Suman Atwal, minerbot programmer. Too bad his brain is still frostbitten by cryostasis.
