520    "An outstanding science fiction tale" from the Hugo and 
       Nebula Award-winning author of Star Trek 's "The Trouble 
       with Tribbles" episode ( San Jose Mercury News ). 
       H.A.R.L.I.E. (Human Analog Replication, Lethetic 
       Intelligence Engine) is an artificially intelligent 
       machine. David Auberson, the psychologist responsible for 
       guiding HARLIE from childhood into adulthood, struggles to
       understand his erratic behavior. When humans begin 
       vocalizing their wishes that HARLIE be shut down, he has 
       to prove his existence and value to his warm-blooded 
       counterparts. Throughout HARLIE's fight to stay alive, 
       Auberson discovers the machine has a vast knowledge and 
       understanding of life, love, and logic, posing the 
       philosophical question of whether or not HARLIE is human, 
       and for that matter, what it means to be human. Nominated 
       for the Hugo and Nebula Awards for Best Novel of the Year,
       the themes of love and discovery in When HARLIE Was One 
       are even more important today than when first published. 
       "One of the most delightful novels about computers 
       around." -- Byte "It may well turn out to be the 
       definitive novel of artificial intelligence; even if it 
       doesn't, Gerrold made the best attack on the theme yet." -
       - Renaissance "Light, brisk, full of ideas . . a bit like 
       a mix of Robert Heinlein and Harlan Ellison (if you can 
       believe that)." -- Locus "Quite simply, When HARLIE Was 
       One is great science fiction. HARLIE is real and the novel
       is real. Don't miss it." -- Luna Monthly "Gerrold proves 
       what a fine science fiction writer he can be. This is a 
       first-rate novel." -- IF magazine.
