Less Than Human

A novel by

He was mankind's last chance. And they were going to kill him for it. Burt is a trillion dollars worth of robot - with a ten-minute gap in his programming that renders him virtually useless to his creators. Still, since coming to Earth, he has managed to find a snappy new set of clothes, a cure for cancer, and a sixteen-year-old girlfriend. Now he's made some really amazing discoveries about himself and his adopted home. Discoveries ranging from the amazing Presidential robot to deviant mechanized sex to mutant wildlife in Lake Michigan to the truth behind kill-crazed New York cops. Discoveries that are going to make life a lot harder for the chief programmer and the powers that be..and a lot more lethal for Burt and his newfound friends. Less Than Human is the funny, tragic tale of a machine that fell to Earth - and became a hero to everyone who crossed his path.
