I, Row-Boat, Part 4 – CONCLUSION

Here's the fourth and final installment in a new story podcast. This time, it's "I, Row-Boat," a story I just finished about a story about a theological dispute between an artifically intelligent Asimov three-laws cultist and an uplifted coral reef.

    I'm a little shocked no one has said anything about this story yet. It was really great, very unique, it's obvious you had a lot of fun writing this one.

    Anyway, can't wait for your next one.

  2. I agree with Andrew -- great story! It made me think about what the self is and whether forking or breaking continuity fractures one's sense of selfhood. The transformation of Robbie was fascinating -- is it sad? I'm not sure.

    That was one of the best short stories I've ever read / heard. In particular, I really liked Olivaw, and the interesting way in which the story approaches the Three Laws. Asimov would have been proud.

    Better than "The Green Brain" (without the chase scenes)!
    As good as the Last War between the Scentient Bees and China (running feature in the upcoming science fiction opera from Los Magníficos [magnificos.net])!
