S’not Illegal (#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

Restrictions

  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 Jack and Adelyn tracked down Dr. Geoffrey Hart. Before they can speak to him, however, a barely clad woman sauntered out of the back of the apartment. Hart told her to go back into the bedroom and stay there. Next:

“Whatever you say, Geoff.” She wobbled out of the room.

Jack, right brow climbing up his face, turned to the man slowly. “Is she an android?”

“Yeah, of course.”

“You’re whoring out an android?”

“S’not illegal.”

“No. I suppose it’s not.” Jack looked at Adelyn, waiting patiently. 

Classy guy, right? Perhaps more from him next week. Perhaps moving somewhere else. Either way, there are more snippets to go. Gotta read them all.

  1. I love the mix of characters in this novel—you have the whole of humanity represented: the heroes, the anti-heroes, the villians, and the sleaze.

    Sometimes it’s difficult to tell the first three apart—which is awesome—but the last one is pretty obvious! :D

  2. I like how nonchalant the good doctor is about it and that he pays no mind to the moral underpinnings, only that it’s not illegal. Can’t wait to hear Adelyn chime in. Great Snippet!

  3. Well, since this is the future, I’m guessing whoring out androids is a thing that happens, if not icky. Reminds me of AI (the movie and Jude Law’s character…) Good stuff as always, and neat descriptions!
