"Murder in the Generative Kitchen by Meg Pontecorvo is a compact little story with a lot to say. Readers will find a fresh take on Asimov’s three laws, see a twisted future where vacations are paid for by the courts, and learn that the same old arguments will still be contested long after we’re gone."
—Ricky L. Brown, Amazing Stories
"An intriguing take on the legal and moral issues arising from our ever-increasing, ever-more-ubiquitous technology."
—Julie Frost, author of PACK DYNAMICS
"Science fiction is a genre about ideas, but every good story must be about people, too. Murder in the Generative Kitchen does well in both areas and should have fans with both people who like science fiction and people who don’t...It’s hard not to think of some of Isaac Asimov’s robot stories."
—George T. Hahn, author of the TAU CETI series
“MURDER IN THE GENERATIVE KITCHEN is chock-full of near-future technology with the associated ethical dilemmas, and as with most good sci-fi, readers are left to ponder how we would react in a similar situation. Vote for guilty? Not guilty? The kitchen did it! Maybe. But perhaps more important and more relevant is the concept of what it means to be human in a world dominated by technology that only makes our lives easier... MURDER IN THE GENERATIVE KITCHEN is novella-length and can be read in one or two sittings. But don't let its size — or Julio's shallow personality at the beginning of the story — fool you. There's more than meets the eye here, and readers should be prepared to question their own (mis)conceptions of life, love, and the technology we create to improve our existence.”
