Mildred is dying of Alzheimer's Disease. As her memories fade, she requires the aid of a full-time andriod to assist her in her everyday life. The android's duty: to tend to Mildred as Alzheimer's steals her away one memory at a time, and to pretend to be her absent family.

Soon, Mildred passes away, and the android Carey must find a new purpose in the world-and in its new family: Paul Owens, the overworked businessman. Susan Owens, the dedicated teacher. And Millie, a curious little girl who will grow up alongside her android best friend. As the humans around it age and change, Carey struggles to understand life's challenges and to make its own path. Carey must learn to live. To grow. To care.

Today I Am Carey is a story about life... and an android's memories.

Martin L. Shoemaker is a programmer who writes on the side... or maybe it's the other way around. Programming pays the bills, but his second-place story in the Jim Baen Memorial Writing COntest earned him lunch with Buzz Aldrin. Programming never did that! His Clarkesworld story Today I Am Paul received the Washington Science Fiction Society's Small Press Award, and was also nominated for a Nebula Award. It has been reprinted in multiple Year's Best anthologies and has been translated into eight languages. Others of his stories have appeared in Analog, Galaxy's Edge, Digital Science Fiction, Forever Magazine, and Writers of the Future Volume 31. His novella Murder on the Aldrin Express was reprinted in Year's Best Science Fiction Thirty-First Annual Collection and in Year's Top Short SF Novels 4. His novelette Racing to Mars received the Analog Analytical Laboratory Award.
