Re: Robot in Distress

Hi Philip. Given the non-humanoid topic, I pictured your characters in a sort of R2-D2 style. I found it fun how Eric the robot combined the usual objective detailed analysis with quite a lot of subjectiveness/ opinion. On balance though, it was a very action-based story, reminding me of the classic sci-fi I used to read back in my teenaged years - a nostalgia trip for me. I felt as though the target audience was a young one and I'm not sure why; I wonder if you took out the amusing names and words and left the story otherwise exactly the same, would it seem older and sadder.
