Mr. Leonard J. Oliver, Leonard J Oliver
Rex-34, a companion robot, rebooted in mechanoid hell. Eighty years had passed and this first glimpse of his new age was on the inside of an industrial trash compactor.
The world he lived in no longer existed. Over two thirds of a century had passed and its morals had changed dramatically. A financial collapse and a terrorist attack in space turned humanity not only on itself but also on their metal creations.
His kind, the massive robotic work force, faces extinction. Their programming crippled them from fighting back. Many stood by helplessly as humans harvested them for massive make-work-recycling plants. The few million survivors were now either living in exile... or hiding.
Yet fate has a way of changing everything. The alien metal the robots consisted of had corrupted their programming. Instead of emulating emotions, true emotions evolved. A race, human created; now live in fear of death, pain and destruction.
Other emotions also surfaced. Love, caring, loneliness and suspicion play with their interactions. Rex struggles to come to terms with these pseudo-emotions and their consequences, especially his relationship to the Master he had left him behind.
However, little does Rex know that within him is the ability to save their entire artificial race and maybe humanity as well. Unfortunately, he is in the worst place at the worst time. With the help of a mismatched group of mechanical and organic beings, he must get away from an empire of religious zealots that are responsible for the largest genocide since World War Two.
