Main Fiction: Lullaby, by Anna North
Originally published in Robot Uprisings, edited by John Joseph Adams and Daniel H. Wilson
I never wanted to move to my grandfather’s house in the first place. He died before I was born, but Mom talked all the time about what a genius he was, and that year I hated everything Mom liked. I was sixteen, my dad had died the year before, and I didn’t see why I should act like anything would ever be all right.
