“Daily Bread” – Robots and religion

51VzrUuJGrL._SX310_BO1,204,203,200_Got a new short story out today – Daily Bread, part of the God, Robot anthology. It’s available in ebook form through Amazon, from Castalia House.

Here’s the situation:

“It is the year 6080 AD. Detective Theseus Hollywell has at last discovered the hiding place of William Locke, a notorious fugitive from justice who has been hunted for decades after committing unspeakable crimes.

“But Locke has a trick up his sleeve, one that the detective couldn’t expect: He has a story to tell.

“This is the tale of the theobots, the robotic beings created to love God and neighbor with a perfection no human could achieve. In ten stories by eight different award-winning authors, Locke recounts the role of the theobots throughout history, from the purposes for which they were originally created to their ultimate role in deciding the fate of Man, the galaxy, and one lost and tortured soul.”

My story, Daily Bread, deals with one aspect of this set-up – if you’re a robot who believes in God, and you want to follow the commandments of Christ, how do you deal with Communion?

Very interesting stuff in here. If you’re in need of a good, short read, check it out.
