Eight Sentence Sunday #6
I present to you Eight Sentence Sunday, a blog hop hosted by Weekend Writing Warriors. I have some lines from my Moon Murder rewrite. The first scene is available as an audio sample on my sample chapters page if you want to give it a listen!
A small collection of clear domes came into view. Their lights were off, yet the white floors shimmered, sending rays into spaceblack.
"I wonder what that colony was used for...."
Alexander looked up from his notes. "That was a robot facility, they tried to design robots to do all of the jobs that were particularly dangerous for humans to do." He went back to his notes without waiting for a response.
Zheng scooted back on the couch. Autonomous robots weren't allowed on Earth, for good reason. She remembered the news reports, the terror, the protests, the court cases. A shutter she couldn't control went down her spine.

It sounds like these robots could've used the Three Laws. BTW, in the last sentence, I believe 'shutter' should be 'shudder'.

A portent of things to come? I worry sometimes about robots and AI... Thanks for giving me thought again.
