To Terminator, With Love
by Wes Kennedy
Dexter Wu's life is hectic, but he's managing—mostly. He's on the verge of finishing grad school, and that means putting the final touches on his number one project: HAL, a social robot and children's storytelling companion. But his best friend is leaving the country for good, his birthday's coming up, he's swamped with studying, and he hasn't slept in days.
He's also going to destroy the world.
