I Have No Mouth I Must Scream by Harlan Ellison
In a post-apocalyptic world, four men and one woman are all that remain of the human race, brought to near extinction by an artificial intelligence. Programmed to wage war on behalf of its creators, the AI became self-aware and turned against all humanity. The five survivors are prisoners, kept alive and subjected to brutal torture by the hateful and sadistic machine in an endless cycle of violence. For starters this is a short story, and as such it is not very long. That being said the price is a little high but the content is top notch. I very much enjoyed the bleak look at life for the last humans. There's no "Jeffty is Five" in this book, but every one of the stories is just killer great.
