The 18 greatest fictional versions of Alan Turing

Charlie Jane Anders, editor at io9, came up with a list of eighteen fictional versions of Alan Turing, the Father of Computer Science.

One entry on the list:
Virtual Girl by Amy Thompson

This fantastic novel about artificial intelligence — still one of the best A.I. novels, even after 20 years — includes an A.I. named Turing, who lives inside a library computer. And one of the novel's lovely moments happens when Turing, the A.I., succeeds in passing the Turing Test — convincing someone that it's human.
