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.
I have also started sharing Young Gods, a YA wip about its namesake.
Today I’m sharing more of Human. Last time we met, Jack shot Dr. Hart after the good doctor seemingly paralyzed Adelyn. After the gunshot, the two gentlemen had words, and Jack instructed Hart back into the apartment to revive Adelyn. We come in with Hart speaking the magic words. Word. Whatever.
Adelyn blinked, turning her head toward Jack. “That was decidedly uncomfortable.”
“What was it?” Jack asked no one in particular. “And what language do you keep speaking?”
“He is speaking Hindi. Many of my codes are in Hindi. That is what my programmer spoke. And I think what occurred was some sort of stasis,” Adelyn supplied, sitting up carefully.
Adelyn and Jack are not happy with Hart. We’ll have to see what will happen as a result next time. And you can make your way over to more wonderful snippets!
