Reviewed in Canada on February 8, 2017
Seeing Von Neumann machines written about in such a matter of fact way was a bit of a surprise to me, at first. After all, Von Neumann devices have normally appeared in Sci-fi works as a self-direct hegemonising swarm, endlessly replicating and consuming - and always destroying.

Not Bob.

A Von Neumann device with a conscience, Bob never seems to forget from whence he comes and he and his legion retain their basic loyalties to the humanity that gave them birth - even if things get a bit strained at times! I found this work to be equal-parts entertaining and intruiging. I haven't thought about Von Neumann machines as anythign other than a cloud of hungry nanite sized machines for quite some time - after reading We Are Legion I will never see them quite the same way again!
