Official book trailer for my new science fiction short story: “The One Who Turned Them On (The Energy Scavengers II). Written by: Ryan Sean O’Reilly. Story available exclusively for Kindle at Amazon.com on 11/26/13: http://www.amazon.com/The-Turned-Them-Energy-Scavengers-ebook/dp/B00GWQLUI2/
Story Synopsis: “On a planet exclusively populated by alien robots, machines struggle to find purpose after abandonment by their creators. Kairos, the highly intelligent and massive weather-machine, monitors the world with cold academic curiosity atop of the great canyon system. He cares only for storms and other significant meteorological events. While below, common worker-bots scavenge daily to find scraps of power that will allow them to subsist in this increasingly savage environment. The Body, a growing robot-collective, is slowly taking over the canyons and oppressing all those that resist its will. Viewing any free power source as a threat, The Body, moves to enlist Kairos in its quest to destroy a mythic, sky-deity who has been benevolently restoring power to injured and disabled machines. Only Ophis, an insignificant and crippled worker-bot, stands in the path of this nefarious task. Will Kairos look beyond his own self-interests, or will he too kow-tow to the collective?”
Series Overview: This is the second installment in my robot-themed series, which tells the story exclusively through the eyes of machines. The works are interconnected but can stand on their own. As of this writing, the first story “The Energy Scavengers” was free and available for download at major online retailers: Amazon.com, iBooks, Barnes & Noble, and Smashwords.com.
