Summary

Includes the bonus short story A FLAW IN THE DIVINE
Two stories about the promise - and the perils - of artificial intelligence and technology.

THE LAST ZOOKEEPER: When the aged caretaker of the world's last animal menagerie passes away, a boy seeks to reconcile the terrible sense of loss he feels.
This is a 2600-word (~10-page) post-apocalyptic story about extinction, annihilation, and the possibility of a future in which technology, not Man, is the apex predator.

A FLAW IN THE DIVINE: After inventing an artificially intelligent (AI) machine capable of self-awareness, a man tries to save humanity from destroying itself, only to find that he has lost control of his own robotic creation.
This is a 3600-word (~14-page) dystopian tale with metaphysical and existential themes.

Both stories are suitable for all ages.
