(available in October from tNY Press)

The following is a passage from Reliant, a book that asks: In a future where robots run businesses, make love, and create art, is there anything more pointless than being human?

Selfies, sexbots, and drones collide in these interwoven nanofictions about a society before, during, and after its collapse. With dazzling humor and insight, debut author S. Kay reveals a future that looks disconcertingly like the present. Beautifully illustrated by Thoka Maer, Reliant is a bold examination of society’s unrequited love for technology.
