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 named Adelyn X. And can’t get her out of his head, which leads to trouble, of course.
The last time you saw me (before I fell off the face of the Earth), Jack and Adelyn tracked down Dr. Geoffrey Hart. After meeting his lovely assistant, they got into some questioning. We’re getting some answers about Adelyn.
Glancing up warily at Adelyn, Hart said, “Adelyn is very…special, even more special than even we knew.”
“The group who oversaw her creation and the creation of the other nine.”
“OK. How is she special?”
“All of the Ten are special. Androids that mimic humanity to a t. Droids mixed with a level of controllable picotech that has never been seen. But Adelyn, she’s done what I only thought was theory.
Dun dun dun! More next week (as long as no gaping chasm opens beneath Atlanta, Georgia). But for now: there are more snippets to go, and they’re worth a wonderful hour of Saturday reading.
