Isaac : A Futuristic Romance Short Story
Previously Published in the STARDUST Anthology by Cynthia Shepp. Isaac, a Mark 3 Android, has one purpose after his creation-to make the lives of those he's assigned to easier. Shortly after being "woken up," he's presented to Mrs. Nelson-a frail, old woman who treats him like a son. He easily settles into life as a helper, just as he was programmed to do, until the doctors deem Mrs. Nelson in need of a second android companion. That's when Isaac meets Sonya, and his life, artificial or not, becomes much brighter. ISAAC is an 8,600 word futuristic romance short story by Michael Loring, author of Dehumanized and Unnatural: A Collection of Supernatural Short Stories.

About Michael Loring
Michael Loring was born in Bristol, Connecticut, but has lived in a variety of places such as Florida and Tennessee. He likes to think of himself as an amateur Lycanthropologist, studying werewolves ever since he was eight years old when he first saw An American Werewolf In London. He spent most of his life switching between home school and public school, always focusing on his passion of writing no matter what. His interest in writing was sparked in the second grade when his teacher encouraged him to write short stories for the class, earning him more than one award at school assemblies for Creative Writing. He currently resides back in his birthplace of Connecticut with a house full of women who like to drive him up the wall until he finishes his chores. Though they seem to avoid him during the night of the full moon for some unexplainable reason...
