The Black Archive #37: Kerblam!
by Naomi Jacobs & Thomas L. Rodebaugh (Obverse Books, 2019)
Jacobs and Rodebaugh bring academic rigour and methodology to Kerblam!, reading the story at a far greater depth than its author can have intended. Their analysis—focussing on AI development and socio-political systems—supports the contention that Kerblam! suffers from plot-driven superficiality.
