* Harlan Ellison's "I Have No Mouth, and I Must Scream" (short story, horror)

Computers controlling the big powers' war machines have turned into a single malevolent sentient AI. Thia AI has destroyed all of humanity except a handful of prisoners, & enjoys torturing them!! I just cannot figure out whatever made this story so popular - it's amongst the worst genre stories I've seen.
