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.
Last week I had one too many sentences and didn’t catch the mistake in time. There was still a post. And in it, Dr. Geoffrey Hart told Jack and Adelyn that Adelyn had evolved. And that Jack was her machinist. Whatever the hell that is. More this week with Jack speaking first. The conversation is between him and Hart.
“Her operator. Owner. You’re the human she’s linked to.”
“No, I’m not.”
“Yes, you are, or she wouldn’t be with you. Wouldn’t listen to you. Wouldn’t look to you. It appears she’s evolved to the point of picking her own machinist as well. She’s quite the marvel.”
I’m going to be real here. I just really wanted to use the term “machinist,” so I made it work. :) A little something new next week. I think I want to explore. There are a bunch of other, good snippets to check out. So, you should do that. :)
