The Meeker and the All-Seeing Eye, by Matthew Kressel
The Meeker and the All-Seeing Eye is quite a fun story, a good nominee for a Nebula. Our characters are the Meeker, so called because it is the meeker of the two, and the All-Seeing Eye, a godlike intelligence that has absorbed pretty much everything in the universe. They find something new, which really doesn't happen much--the digital form of a preserved human, who seems to have a virus--each time they animate her she dies rather quickly, after imparting cryptic information. What's going on? Good stuff. 3 stars.
