Alastair Sterling was the inventor who sparked the robot revolution, and because of his sudden death he didn't see any of it. That is, until he unexpectedly wakes up in a robot body that matches his old one exactly and finds out that 16 years have passed. Brendan Pinsky, Al's former research partner and secret lover, now runs one of the largest robot manufacturers in the country. And Brendan's dearest project, Sulla - a highly advanced robot with a mind copied from Al's - is now living as a teenage girl.
O Human Star follows the story of these three coming together as an unconventional family in a not-too-distant future.
