Already praised and chosen for Dozois’s Year’s Best SF anthology, Silently has been published in limited edition hardcover and posted serially at Clarkesworld over the final three months of 2011. The novella explores artificial intelligence through the lens of folklore and twisted family, following an entity from its first moments through a swath of human history and beyond.
