Publisher's Summary

From the New York Times bestselling author of Robopocalypse comes a fascinating and fantastic collection that explores complex emotional and intellectual landscapes at the intersection of artificial intelligence and human life.

In "All Kinds of Proof," a down-and-out drunk makes the unlikeliest of friends when he is hired to train a mail-carrying robot; in "Blood Memory," a mother confronts the dangerous reality that her daughter will never assimilate in this world after she was the first child born through a teleportation device; in "The Blue Afternoon That Lasted Forever," a physicist rushes home to be with his daughter after he hears reports of an atmospheric anomaly which he knows to be a sign of the end of the earth; in "Miss Gloria," a robot comes back to life in many different forms in a quest to save a young girl.

Guardian Angels and Other Monsters displays the depth and breadth of Daniel H. Wilson's vision and examines how artificial intelligence both saves and destroys humanity.

Overall, fantastic collection and narration

Did I love every story and narrator? No. But were they all very enjoyable? Absolutely.

The collection as a whole was time well-spent listening. The stories were also varied and often thought-provoking.

Extremely Underrated

Thought-provoking stories and honestly some of the best narration I've heard after 200+ audio books.

Excellent compilation!

It was a good compilation of sci-fi short stories. All of them have the right mix of emotion, and adventure. I will say that the narrators delivered the perfect tone of voice for each story.

Could not get into mini stories (could be my issue

Okay. I love Wilsons other books and this on is not bad but I was not one for mini stories. It seems like you get going and then your over. If that is your thing then you might really like this one. 3 stars for me is not a bad book but not one I would listen to a second time.
