Harlan Ellison was a little dismissive of this short story that you’ve might only heard of because you saw it on a Steam summer sale, but at the time of its publication (1967) its ideas about the possibility of “evil AI,” as well as the possible degeneracy of humanity, were shocking and unexpected, and it set the stage for the wave of sci-fi we’ll talk about next season: New Wave!

My Thoughts

Yesterday the YouTube channel had a video about a post-apocalyptic science fiction short story by Harlan Ellison called I Have No Mouth And I Must Scream, which is an amazing title, and the video was called

The title of that short story caught my attention immediately, there is something about it that I find pretty amazing and poetic and symbolic et cetera, and now I want to read this short story one day.

From what this video describes, it sounds like a story that I will like, hopefully I will get a chance to read it.

From how this short story was described, it partly reminds me of a dream that my brother GC had back when he was in public school.

In his dream, some scientists made a weapon (maybe bomb) that was strong enough to destroy the entire world.

Someone asked them why did they make such a dangerous weapon, and they did not even know why; and maybe the world was at risk of being destroyed by it.

The end,
