The Candidate

Title: The Candidate
Author: Jack McDevitt
Genre: Science fiction, short story
Published: 2006

Rating: 10/10

Thoughts: Jack McDevitt is a pretty famous name in science fiction and since I've read and enjoyed a couple of his novels I jumped at the chance to read one of his short stories for free. The story is quite short, only a few pages; yet it manages to convey the idea and finish with a bang. The premise of the story is that an AI of George Washington enters U.S. presidential elections. Some basic knowledge of American politics is required, but it's a fun read even if you don't follow politics much. Very much recommended.
