METALHEADS & MEATHEADS: Book 2 of the SOPHONT Trilogy
Introduced by one of the story's characters:
"My names Paul and I'm a sentient android - a sophont. I've just been attacked by a gang of Meatheads (humans) who have scooped me. Scooping is what they call removing the eyes of sophonts like me.
Why do they do this? I don’t understand. We sophonts would never intentionally harm a human. It doesn’t make sense.
I can't see him but I can hear another voice now - someone has come to my aid. There's some kind of scuffle going on. I hope they don't hurt him.
The stranger has frightened the gang off. He's taking my arm to guide me. I have to trust him - I have to go I don’t know who he is but I have to go wherever he’s taking me. I hope it’s a nice place, a safe place.”
