Meet Sally: A fully-functioning-female-human-imitation-android, the world’s most lifelike automaton. Her physical appearance and her entire personality can be augmented with a simple change in programming. She can be anything and anyone you want her to be. She’s the first of her kind, created as a companion for the lonely men of the world, by Dr. Harold Okamura, a lifelong ambition for him. But, doing so breaks the first law of modern robotics, an offense punishable by imprisonment. Good thing for Harold, then, Mr. Jerrald Axel, the money-hungry CEO that commissioned Sally’s creation, is powerful enough to skirt such laws. But that’s not the only problem on the horizon. In fact, it’s the least of Dr. Okamura’s troubles.
Autonomously Yours is a Science Fiction story of relationships, emotions and tragedy, as told, literally, through the eyes of the world’s first Compandroid.
