  5. Hello All, Attached is the 13th and latest instalment of The Mandroid Murder. Running slightly over the 5,000 words - sorry about that. Nothing special if you have time to read, just the usual stuff. There are some ongoing issues which I need to resolve in the next edit, but I don't mind if you mention them again, Whatever strikes you as worthy of comment is fine by me.

  6. Hello Everyone, Thank you for considering and I hope you have the time and inclination to read this latest submission. 'Previously on TMM...' is noted below, there are three chapters here, each relatively short, but slightly over the total - sorry about that. 'L' for the usual reasons, 'S' for one use of a sexually derogatory word that goes beyond 'L'. If anyone is interested, this submission takes us to Page 201 out of 294, so beyond the 2/3rds mark, and there are 'only' four more submissions to go after this one - if you're willing to stick with it. My gratitude again to all those who continue reading, and to those who have input up to this point.

  7. Dear all, Many thanks of reading if you have the opportunity and all comments most welcome. I've flagged with a 'D', because there is mention of drugs, but there is no actual drug-taking.

  8. Hello everyone, Thank you kindly for reading if you have the time and the inclination. This is Submission 10 out of 16 in total – all going according to plan, and we are now past halfway in the story. As usual, anything goes as far as comments are concerned. There will be some aspects that have been commented upon previously which are not fixed all the way through the story. I would ask that you bear with me on these elements. This chapter might be a little rough for some in one particular place; be warned. I have included the ‘T’ rating for torture. I will say no more, but please notice the ‘S’ rating also. And not forgetting the omnipresent ‘L’ rating. To try and categorise a bit, to help you make a decision about reading, the ‘V’ is there to modify the ‘S’ not the ‘T’. The torture does NOT involve hacking-and-slashing, but a more passive form – more like Cruelty. There is no ‘G’ore, but the passage in question is quite graphic. If you want an edited version, I will provide a sanitised ‘cut’ if you email me or post on the forum thread. This will involve me modifying a couple of paragraphs and simply stating the bald facts of what happens there. So, I hope that’s not too much to cope with. Thanks for (thinking about) reading.

  11. Hello Everybody, Thank you for your consideration of my latest submission of TMM, three whole chapters this time! Any comments very welcome, as ever. Whatever you like, and whatever you don't. If commenting, and you happen to remember, and if it's not too much trouble, can I ask you to reference the document pages, which are tracking my current draft. This week's sub should start at Page 97. Don't worry about it though, if you don't get the formatting, not a biggy Best, Robinski Previously on TMM: Chapter 1: On the Moon, Dr. John Mills tests An-con's new tech by putting crippled ex-miner Callan into an android using synaptic mapping.

  12. Hey, So, I see there are four submission requests and it's Monday morning. I've got a full day, so I'm going to stick my neck out and submit. This is Chapter 3 and the first appearance of Moth. Again, some of you may have seen this as bits and pieces, so apologies for the relatively recent repetition. And don't forget the language warning - it's Moth. I think there are more expletives than adverbs in this, although actually, I've taken one or two swears out. Best, Robinski
  13. Hello everyone, Soooo, please do ignore until tomorrow, but I've got a heavy day ahead, so thought no one would mind if I just 'slipped this under the door' a bit early and ran away. If you do have time to read this coming week, I'm just looking for anything that occurs to you. I'm ramping up the pace a bit with a 'full' submission. Interested to know if it holds your interest for two chapter and 5,000 words. Previously on The Mandroid Murder...

  14. Hey everyone, I'm pleased to bring you another chapter of TMM, Number 8, to be precise - and the longest submission yet. Previously on TMM: Chapter 1: On the Moon, Dr. John Mills continues to test And-con's new tech by putting Callan, a crippled ex-miner, into an android body using synaptic mapping. Chapter 2: Quirk arrives on Earth and travels to Milan, where he puts an envelope in a bin then meets a nice lady. They have tea/coffee. Chapter 3: Orphaned Moth discovers her aunt's secret task for gangster uncle Toni; Moth takes it over, but then acquires an android social-worker from La Madre. Chapter 4: Moth takes the train to Milan in the company of Grimes, leaves him at his hotel and makes the pick-up for Toni. Chapter 5: Quirk is accosted by a cop when walking with La donna. Callan struggles with his situation. Chapter 6: Grimes meets with Toni and enacts the plot to kill the Capo. Chapter 7: Quirk meets with Toni and signs up to look after Moth. Nothing special in relation to pointers, just everything and anything that you deem worthy of comment - as usual. For what it's worth, this chapter takes the page counter to a quarter of the way through. Best, Robinski
  15. Dear all, I am pleased to submit for your comments, the first two chapters of TMM. This is second draft, anything and everything are in the cross-hairs, nothing in particular I can think of to focus on, just everything! Some of you may recognise bits of this, maybe even most of this submission, which I sent out between July and September last year. If you are willing to bear with it, the new material will kick in soon, although I hope this reads more cohesively that the snippets and portraits that you saw before. If you haven't met these characters previously, I hope you enjoy them, or at least can put up with them long enough to jot down some observations. Much appreciated, Robinski
  16. Hey everyone, So here are Chapters 5 and 6; kind of short, but that's part of my whole approach to this story and these characters; short, sharp and hopefully sparky. Previously: Chapter 1: On the Moon, Dr. John Mills continues to test And-con's new tech by putting Callan, a crippled ex-miner, into an android body using synaptic mapping. Chapter 2: Quirk arrives on Earth and travels to Milan, where he puts an envelope in a bin then meets a nice lady. They have tea/coffee. Chapter 3: Orphaned Moth discovers her aunt's secret task for gangster uncle Toni; Moth takes it over, but then acquires an android social-worker from La Madre. Chapter 4: Moth takes the train to Milan in the company of Grimes, leaves him at his hotel and makes the pick-up for Toni. Chapter 5: ...... Chapter 6: ...... So, early on in this chapter is something that I feel might be controversial. It's there with the intention of creating 'instant' character, to spice up the sound of the story a bit (in passing), and I really am just looking for your reaction to it, does it work or does it not, and why. Cheers, Robinski
