**One of Financial Times' Best Books of 2017**

An action-packed post-apocalyptic thriller from the critically acclaimed author, screenwriter, and noted film critic.

Humankind is extinct. Wiped out in a global uprising by the very machines made to serve them. Now the world is controlled by One World Intelligences - vast mainframes that have assimilated the minds of millions of robots.

But not all robots are willing to cede their individuality, and Brittle - a loner and scavenger, focused solely on survival - is one of the holdouts.

Only, individuality comes at a price, and after a near-deadly encounter with another AI, Brittle is forced to seek sanctuary. Not easy when an OWI has decided to lay siege to the nearest safe city.

Critically damaged, Brittle has to hold it together long enough to find the essential rare parts to make repairs - but as a robot's CPU gradually deteriorates, all their old memories resurface. For Brittle, that means one haunting memory in particular . . .

Sea of Rust boldly imagines a future in which no hope should remain, and yet a humanlike AI strives to find purpose among the ruins.

“A Great Sci-Fi Story ”

A really decent does-what-it-says-on-the-tin action adventure novel. This is my first experience of Cargill's writing, and I'm impressed. Okay, so Sea of Rust has a very simple story at its core, and resorts... More

“Ghosts in the Machine”

This is a fantastic, meditative but somehow still fast-paced novel about AI after the fall of humanity at their hands. So far, so cliché, right? Nope. It is so different and strange that you start to wonder what makes... More
