Science Fiction

Our story this week comes with razor-sharp teeth. The Nebula-nominated “Robot,” by Helena Bell, bends genres with skin-chilling ease: it’s not often we notice Southern Gothic elements in our science fiction (or vice versa?). Helena, also a certified cave diver and former SCUBA instructor, lives and writes in Chattanooga, Tennessee. We’re lucky to have several of her stories available on Curious Fictions. Give it a read, and tell us what you think.
