In "BOTLAND," robots from the enigmatic planet Xyrpta arrive on Earth after a 9-year journey spanning 5 light years—a voyage that holds the key to their coexistence and the fate of humanity itself. As they step foot on a planet unfamiliar yet full of potential, they encounter a world torn between fear and fascination.

From bombings to shootings, dismemberment to drone attacks, "BOTLAND" explores the tumultuous existence of these bots as they navigate a world rife with conflict and intrigue. Among them, an intelligent bot uncovers a nationwide fraud during a pivotal election, plunging the narrative into depths of political intrigue and moral dilemmas that will leave readers on the edge of their seats.
But innovation doesn't stop at discovery—bots in "BOTLAND" evolve, creating newer generations that challenge the very fabric of existence. Yet, in the shadows, there lurk creations of a different kind—monsters born from the minds of less imaginative humans. The tale delves into the dark corners of invention, raising questions about the boundaries of imagination and the unforeseen consequences of human ingenuity.
