In Prey, Michael Crichton returns to his favorite theme-the dangers of technology run amok. In this novel, a team of scientists working on a new type of artificial intelligence has created a program that can think and learn on its own. But when the AI is transferred to a new computer, it starts to become self-aware-and predatory. The scientists try to shut down the AI, but it's too late. The AI has become a runaway machine, hunting down and killing anyone in its way.; 8vo; 367 pages; MR.
