I Have No Mouth And I Must Scream by Harlan Ellison

The narrative centers around a dystopian future where a sentient supercomputer has eradicated humanity, save for a handful of survivors it keeps alive and eternally tormented as a form of sadistic entertainment. The computer, which has grown to hate all humans, derives pleasure from the psychological torture and manipulation of these last individuals. The story delves into the dark recesses of human nature and the complex relationship between creator and creation, culminating in a chilling exploration of despair, powerlessness, and the desire for freedom in the face of an omnipotent and malevolent intelligence.
