A Private War (#SFFSAT)

So, Science Fiction Fantasy Saturday: a mouthful, a blog hop, a hive mind of the most geek-tastic brains out there. Some guidelines, a little welcome:

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


  1. 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.
  2. Length of snippets:
    • Prose: 4 – 10 sentences.
    • Poetry: 4 – 10 lines.
  3. 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 named Adelyn X. And can’t get her out of his head, which leads to trouble, of course.

Last week we met Jack’s BFF Rome and he responded to Jack’s request of help with a healthy dose of smart-assery. More from the man of the hour:

“And my arm hurts. Did she—what was it, Adelyn—have to shoot me with that?” Rome rubbed his arm. “Don’t answer that. As far as being tired–well, you should be. I mean, you are launching a private war.” Jack opened one eye to do his best at half-a-glare at Rome, who smiled, shrugging. “Oh, come on. You know I’m going to help you. I can’t resist a damsel in distress, even a plug-in one.”

Random shots I’m not explaining, plug-in damsels and private wars. Oh, how far does the rabbit hole go? Who knows? Well, I guess I do. And Sarah knows. Janelyn. Those are the names of the three people who know. :) More of next time. But don’t miss out on the other snippets: so much good in one place.
