February 3rd, 2018: "Happy Birthday Patrick" by Christopher Adams

Recommended Posts

The Discussion originally scheduled for January 27th has been postponed until the following Saturday.  

Please join us for our next Readers' Corner discussion at 8:30 PM (EST) on February 3, 2018 [1:30 AM (GMT) February 4th for those in other time zones] for a discussion of the short story "Happy Birthday Patrick" by Christopher J. Adams.

This story is science fiction, but it doesn't deal with the iconic bug eyed monsters or interstellar warfare normally associated with that genre.  It looks at the relationship; between an artificial intelligence (think Data from Star Trek the Next Generation) and an aging crew-member of a space ship a long way from home.  I think your will find the story compelling, and in some ways moving.  I hope you enjoy it as much as I have, and I am certain that we will have fun exploring the sociological issues raised,

The story is available on line at our oft visited source of contemporary fiction, East of the Web at:  http://www.eastoftheweb.com/short-stories/UBooks/HappBirt992.shtml

As usual we will meet in the #readers_corner chatroom on Koach.com:
