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’ve been sharing snippets from a wip called Human: a tale about a detective who meets an android. And can’t get her out of his head, which leads to trouble, of course.
Last week Adelyn got done telling Jack that his driving would result in his skimmer (vehicle like a bike) being broken into itty bitty pieces. Now, Jack’s reaction.
Her face was unbelievable when infused with emotion: her features softened, her eyes brightened, lips moistened. He couldn’t look away even as the small warning whistled in the back of his head; he was starting to get a high from upsetting an android. No, not just an android—specifically, Adelyn X. He didn’t have a chance to reply before she brushed past him, grumbling, “Come on. Zed’s waiting.”
He followed her into the shop, glancing at its glowing sign that simply read “Repairs.” Inside, the windowless, squat building was filled with a soft, blue light. Everything was cold and remote. There was a waiting area with uncomfortable looking chairs, but Adelyn walked straight past the counter, ignoring the person standing behind it. Jack trailed her as she went into a room with a rickety sliding door and it almost caught Jack’s arm as he stepped in behind her quickly.
How mysterious. More next week. But now: you may now step into the speculation zone. Dun nuh nuh nuh nuh nuh nuh.
