Five Books That Give Voice To Artificial Intelligence

Only five?  And Mike and Hal not making the cut?

 

Article also mentions a free online read at https://uncannymagazine.com/article/fandom-for-robots/ :

"Bonus short fiction - 

Fandom for Robots” by Vina Jie-Min Prasad (Uncanny Magazine) is a fantastic Nebula-nominated story that gets inside the head of a vintage robot called Computron who starts writing fanfic for a TV show because its favourite character (a robot) is handled so badly by all the humans in fandom. A clever, fun piece about the value of #ownvoices perspectives and how robots can be compelling characters to read about even (especially) when they don’t sound remotely like humans. –Tansy"
