Journal Entry 1 by wingGoryDetailswing from Nashua, New Hampshire USA on Wednesday, November 10, 2021
I got this softcover from an online seller. It's an SF anthology themed on AI-equipped supertanks, along the lines of Keith Laumer's Bolos. Among my favorite entries:

"World Enough" by Robert E. Hampson, in which a woman who's in the field of battle as an "intel weenie" and the combat AI forge an intriguing synthesis.

"A Tank Named Bob" by Larry Correia involves a man whose brain is now controlling a massive AI-interface tank while seeking vengeance against the enemy for the death of his son. Some poignant - and unnerving - twists in this one.

"Tanknological Superiority" by Hank Davis features a very young AI - with a sense of humor - as it tries to help its human family while also doing its job.

"Harvester of Men" by Tony Daniel features a somewhat unusual version of the AI-tank - this one's a huge truck. And a dangerous one, until a risk-taking man frees it from enemy control and finds a new comrade.

"Good of the Many" by Monalisa Foster - among the more poignant and horrifying tales here, this one features an AI-driven long-sleep pod that spent centuries protecting its frozen colonists after going off course and landing in a remote location.

And there are many more good stories here as well!
