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 Adelyn finally began to explain why she’s so special and why she has decided to confide in Jack. Here’s what happened last time.
“The Ten. Androids. People like me. Research ventures. We are the first test. Experiment. Whatever.” Her language was becoming more imprecise as she became more upset.
“OK, calm down for a second. Take a deep breath,” he instructed. “You need one.” She took one automatically, bright eyes too big in her small face. “You are one of ten research…experiments that focus on combining humans and androids?”
I think I’ve revealed enough. :) If I manage to make it back, we’ll pick up somewhere different!
Until next time, check out some more snippets.
