It’s always interesting when a random conversation gets started around here and the ideas/arguments/comments flow freely…
Today’s iteration of that was the three laws of robotics as they are being reflected in my upcoming MilSF novel. Midwest Chick turned to me at one point and said, “Isn’t it fun when everybody knows the three laws?”
Of course there was no consensus, which means the ‘discussions’ will continue… Sigh…
I’m just gonna write the damn thing and let the chips fall where they may. 🙂
At least ‘some’ of the folks understood my point of view on it and the way I introduced it!
Now it’s back to the grindstone, so light blogging and commenting for a few days, while I try to beat my story into submission… Or at least get my muse to talk to me in some language I understand!
And here’s the blurb-
The novel, set in the early 1990’s, is told from different first person perspectives. In a sense, it is a coming of age story wherein the principal characters, Sean O’Bryan and Jessica Baker are joined in a backdrop of intrigue as they simply attempt to live life.
Sean, on a journey to be his own man, joins Satan’s Legion, a motorcycle gang in Southern California. Jessica, adrift as a stranger in a strange land, joins him in the gang as they try to work out who they are as individuals and as a couple.
As their need to join the criminal world completely becomes more pressing, things for Sean and Jess don’t realize that what they say is being recorded and what they plan to do is part of a larger net that is dropping over them. While justice is about to be served, compassion by the undercover police officer in their midst sets the wheels in motion for their escape.
Jessica, wanted in England for a crime that she did not fully commit and their involvement with Satan’s Legion culminates in a flight to the Boneyard, in the most unlikely place.
It’s worth the money and I definitely recommend it if you like a true to life mystery!
