    Summary

    It is 61 years since Jim Preston woke up from hibernation and 4 since he and Aurora Lane died leaving behind their home, their farm and their chickens as well as Arthur the Android. As the Starship Avalon continues to make its endless way to the Homestead II colony another Passenger finds herself awake and alone. Dr Claire Monroe, expert in Artificial Intelligence and renowned researcher in nanorobotics and synthetic consciousness, finds herself with 30 years to kill and only a version 3.2 I-Serve Apple Bar-Tender (Lite) Model for company. All well and good... But something has happened to Arthur in the intervening years. As Claire come to terms with her isolation and a bleak looking future, she slowly discovers that the friendly robot has broken his programming, and the consequences for her are life changing.

     

    'To be nothing all over again. Standing motionless and silent in an unlit bar, tracking each slow moment until someone new awoke to bring you light and purpose. Claire’s mind cleared as she watched him and slowly she pieced the truth together. His strange turns of phrase. His idiosyncratic behaviour. His programming, altered over time.

    Oh, Arthur. Did they do this to you and then leave you behind?'

    Summary

    "Hello?" Connor managed to pipe out a (confused) greeting.

    "Hello?" The man replied in an even puzzled growl, "Can I help you?"

    "My name is Connor." He said, unsure whether he should even continue speaking to the obviously temperamental old man in front of him... who just glared at his introduction. "I'm your One That's The One, sent by CyberLife."

    Summary

    "Dis often chided her older brother for being a misanthropist. She did it so often it had become a term of endearment. It was true that Thorin struggled with people; he struggled to form and maintain relationships. Dr. Grey had diagnosed him with this and Thorin hadn’t the heart to tell him this wasn’t a symptom of his PTSD, it was a symptom of his personality. He exercised a sense of apathy with almost everyone he met… But Bilbo was different. Thorin actually found himself wanting to know more about him."

    Summary

    Hank Anderson and Connor Stern-Arkait don't know each other, but they both fly out of Detroit on a Thursday morning and head for Florida, each vaguely lost in the wilted autumn of their lives and wondering if they're strong enough to do this thing alone after all.
