Alasdair Shaw in hugo_recommend

Suggestion for Best Novel or Jack Campbell 2017

I'd like to put Liberty by Alasdair Shaw out there. Yes, it feels weird listing my own book, but nothing ventured...

The novel deals with the rights and responsibilities of sentient beings, be they human or AI. The two main characters are The Indescribable Joy of Destruction, a warship that accidentally becomes the first sentient artificial intelligence, and Commander Olivia Johnson, the enemy officer who almost killed it. Johnson struggles against her personal daemons, depression and survivor guilt. The Indescribable Joy of Destruction struggles with its identity as a being with free will. Together they uncover a plot to wipe out the civilian population of a whole planet.
It will be published on 1 August 2016: http://lrd.to/xZJGd4yPXo
