Keep them coming folks. They're a great way to see what works and what doesn't.
This one was from Jenre on her "Well Read" blog.
The tone shifts rather in the final story, Reversal by AB Gayle. Instead of the heavy themes and sociological ideas, this story is a light-hearted look at what happens when a computer genius is isolated on a off-world manufacturing plant and is sent a male domestic cyborg to help with the cleaning. Sebastian lives a lonely existence and so when the package arrives from his mother, he can't help tinkering about with the cyborg's programming, especially when it looks to have quite a lot of anomalous coding. Sebastian also finds himself strangely attracted to the Cyborg's rippling muscles and good looks and begins to wonder whether he's just very lonely or whether he may not be as straight as he thought he was. This story was just a hoot from start to finish. Sebastian is a very sympathetic character. His acceptance of his isolated lifestyle was quite sad at first, but I enjoyed watching him changing the programming on the cyborg and fighting his growing lust and affection for the robot. I was at times both touched and amused as Sebastian thinks through the moral implications of lusting and even having sex with a robot and I cheered on every change he made to the cyborg's programming. After the serious themes of the previous stories in the anthology, this was the perfect way to end the anthology which left me with a smile on my face.
