D. B. Story is a writer living in the southwestern United States. While that territory can cover anywhere from New Mexico to Hawaii he declines to be more specific at this time. His use of the time-honored artifice of writing under a pseudonym comes from the necessity to still maintain a day job and the habit of employers to Google new applicants to discover what stupid things said applicant is willing to foolishly do, and then doubly foolishly post for the world to see afterwards. Such invasions of one�s personal life become an unnecessary distraction. D. B. Story has long had interests in both Science Fiction (since first discovering his mother�s secret cache of Ace Doublebooks stashed under her bed) and writing. In fact, anything he has enjoyed participating in he eventually has a desire to create as well. He seriously began writing (although not selling) stories ten years ago due to a dissatisfaction with what he was reading at the time and the belief that he could do it better. He started out with the interaction between humans and the sexy robots they would inevitably create and later branched out to other erotic Fantasy and SF genres. During that time he has written everything from flash fiction to a 402,000 word novel and a screenplay based on his other writings, as yet unsold. Whether his writing is actually �better� he admits he must leave to his readers to decide, but he likes his stuff a lot. He has often said that, �Writing time is always good time.� He also says that with the advent of cheap computers, word processors, eBooks, and the Internet that times have never been better for a diversity of writers to be heard.

In this collection of 6 short stories and 9 short essays we explore the future world of robots-fembots in particular- from the author�s own unique perspective. The essays cover factual speculations and extrapolations into what could be our very near future, as well as discussing the aspects of what to expect from a robotic future. The stories show the resulting relationships and interactions that have come from those speculations form the basis for the stories that follow. The stories, always sexy and romantic, are not always HEA-but then again neither is life. The stories include: �My First Robot� where a young man is given a robot who turns out to be rather more than he expected. �Three Strikes Against Her� wherein the adventure of buying a used fembot turns out to be more than either the purchaser-or the fembot-expected. �Fembot Studies� where you go to learn just what this fembot thing really is all about. �Mandy�, was introduced to us from a historical perspective in the previous story. Now learn her bittersweet story firsthand. �My Working Weekend� where an overworked executive learns what it means to be set up by his boss and boss�s fembot assistant. And �Lindsey�s Story� about a young fembot created as a throwaway toy. These are all stories that don�t pull any punches about how we will actually relate to and with our robotic companions if we build them correctly to start with.

My book was about a bunch of dudes ogling each others junk and wanting to have sex with one another...I was more looking for robot sex. This is not robot sex. Plus It's only a sample. I feel ripped off on 2 counts. It was only 19 pages long.
