Humans, the weekend is almost upon us (for my side of the planet anyway) and if your Thursday is only just starting, well, remember that 1 day on Pluto is 6 Earth days! So, doesn't that make you feel heaps better now?
Anyway, the purpose of this post is to provide you, the discerning potential reader of The Cora Chronicles, some tidbits on robots. You may know through other sources that the robots in my story have been inspired by Isaac Asimov's vision. Essentially, this simply entails the Three Laws of Robotics:
1. A robot may not injure a human being or, through inaction, allow a human being to come to harm;
2. A robot must obey orders given it by human beings except where such orders would conflict with the First Law;
3. A robot must protect its own existence as long as such protection does not conflict with the First or Second Law.
Simple and eloquent, aren't they?
Finally, I've also attached a sample book cover my art director (Ezra) came up with which I think looks SUPER-cool, and helps you visualize the moment when you are finally able to caress this book in your hands.
Enjoy the rest of your non-Plutonian day or night, whichever the case may be. \V/,
