Synopsis: Seven short stories of the future: a robot is abandoned by his human buyer when she has second thoughts, a frustrated employee has a rude awakening when his computer starts managing his career, the caretaker of a lonely space station gets a shock when a couple of unexpected visitors show up, and more!

A collection of speculative fiction short stories with romantic elements.

From the Author: Excerpt from "On the Beach"

"Lieutenant. You really should go to bed. You need your rest."

"I'd rather stay here, if you don't mind," I replied.

"Are you afraid? You never seemed so before." Her voice seemed much gentler.

I sighed. "Maybe you're right." I swung my feet off of the console and stood up. She was right, my bed was much more comfortable than a badly-padded chair. "Did you finish scanning?"

"There's a small malfunction in the communications wiring. It might require a manual override. I'll attempt to fix it."

That explained everything. Communications had a problem, and that had to be why I was hearing voices. It was probably picking up stuff from the planet. I suddenly felt totally silly. I'd certainly been in space before for longer amounts of time than this. After 10 years in the service I certainly couldn't be cracking up now.

"Keep me posted on that, and unlock the door." I called out. The door opened with a hiss.

"I'm lighting up the area, Lieutenant, so you won't have to find your way in the dark," the computer said.

"Thanks." I was a bit surprised by her concern. She usually acted as though my presence wasn't really necessary, which was true. Computers had replaced people on most of the space stations, even the research facilities.

The next few days were uneventful. I didn't hear any voices, though I started to wish for something to break the monotony. Too bad I forgot to be careful what I wished for. A week after hearing the voices, things got worse.
