AIs, transhumans, and living ships have been a staple in science fiction and fantasy for years. Was The Ship Who Sang the first sentient spaceship in fiction, and who were the other pioneers?  How do Iain Banks' ships fit in. How do you write them to make them believable but also non-human? Why do you write them?
