- "Body Electric" by Susan Squires.
- The near future, as Squire's (The Sacrament) envisions it in this electrifying and sensual sci-fi romance, is a computer-dominated metropolis ruled more by commerce, and a colossal software corporation named Visimorph (read: Microsoft, than conscience.
- Vic Barnhardt, a brilliant and troubled computer programmer who's determined to create artificial intelligence (AI), is the novels hip heroine, but her controlling nature and ambiguous sexuality (she dresses and acts like a man in order to fit into the computer world) may alienate readers initially.
- The story springs to life when Vics AI does.
- Before long, Vic and Jodie, her all-too-human, male computer program, are on the run from Vic's boss, Bob McIntire, the founder of Visimorph.
- More a caricature than a character, McIntire sells inferior software, charges a bundle for upgrades and believes AI may be the most marketable product since Windows, if he could only get his hands on it.
- While hiding out, Vic gives Jodie an upgrade of sorts, falls in love with him and, in the process, learns to accept herself.
- Although some of the books science fictional elements are far-fetched (such as Jodie's transformation from code to sentient being), Squires's deft plotting and full-bodied characters make this whirlwind adventure worthwhile.
- 384 pages.
