My Friend Chris - A Science Fiction Story

My Friend Chris is a science fiction coming of age story set on Mars with an android involved. I began penning this story in late 2015, put it down for about six months and picked it up again in May of 2016.

I have always loved working with complex ideas through fiction. The main idea I am trying to explore with this story is “what makes us human and can it be reproduced?” As Ryan and CHR move through this story I will be exploring these subjects in as simple of terms as possible.

Ryan is a young man who lacks the desire to connect, CHR is an android that hasn’t been programmed to build emotional attachments. Can these two characters help each other? You’ll have to read the story to find out.

The story is listed here in order, start reading from the top and click “previous” at the bottom of each page – I’m still trying to figure out how to make WordPress flip the pagination order.
