Welcome to Science Fiction Fantasy Saturday. On the surface, it’s a web ring of authors who post snippets of their work for comment. In reality, it’s a close-knit group of friends and colleagues working together to support and encourage one another and promote the science fiction and fantasy genres.– JC Cassels, 2012
- Absolutely no erotica or explicit content. This ring is for all ages to read. This is the founding reason for this ring, and any diversions will be removed from the final list on Saturday.
- Length of snippets:
- Prose: 4 – 10 sentences.
- Poetry: 4 – 10 lines.
- Any and all comments on the authors’ work are welcome, but please take care to keep them constructive.
I’m sharing snippets from a WIP called Human: a tale about a man who meets an android. And can’t get her out of his head, which leads to trouble, of course.
But last time we ended with Adelyn beginning to strip down in front of Jack, making him a bewildered (if interested) detective. Picking up there:
“Jack?” He glanced back at her and saw that she had a hand-length bandage covering the left side of her ribcage. “Are you alright?” He glanced again to see a small smile flash on her face. Was she teasing him? Surely not.
“I’m—I’m fine,” he bit off. “Did you hear my question? I asked…” His voice trailed off as she pulled the bandage free of her umber-toned skin. A jagged tear was in her side, the flesh serrated but puffy. What lay inside the wound was a mass that looked to be the muscles and tissue of a human threaded with glittering wires. “Oh, Adelyn…” She looked up at him and her eyes shone with an eerie light.
More about her glowing eyes and her wound next week! Until then feed the spec fic need with more #SFFSAT by going straight to the source!
