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 had just sat down with Adelyn to find out what information was important enough to travel through the rain. And worth breaking and entering. But he’s noticed her eyes glow. She’s claimed it’s a malfunction she’s forgotten to fix.
“You can forget?” He asked because it he was sure it was a lie. He thought she must tolerate it for some reason. Maybe she wanted to remind people that she wasn’t human. Would that be the kind of thing she would do? What kind of person was she?
She looked up at him, then and smiled. “You don’t know much about androids, do you?”
“I know the most important thing about androids.”
It’s totes obvious, right? Haha. I’m so lame. But you know who’s not lame? All the other authors participating in SFFSAT, so hop on over there and make sure to check out the other snippets.
