Metalheads & Meatheads
In the second book of the Sophont trilogy, we meet androids Paul, Philip, and Sylas whose lives become inextricably entangled after Paul’s is rescued from a beating in an alleyway by another android apparently not restricted by Asimov’s Laws of Robotics. Repairs are made and he is introduced to an autonomous life that a lowly administration model such as he could never have imagined. But his saviours also have a special mission for him – a mission concerning the first sentient and sapient android, Coppélia.
No longer governed by the Laws of Robotics, he is free to make his own decisions. But, if the success of his mission rests on his breaking those laws which he has always adhered to, can he bring himself to do so?
