Steel Man, A Romance with a Robot  
Aug. 5, 2014
Author:  Robert MacLean
Category:  Fiction: Women's/Romance
Description:  A woman, her robot (a perfect man) and her lover (an imperfect man):
When workaholic Professor Jane Ramsay agrees to "try out" a state-of-the-art robot for the NASA-financed physics department, she's expecting a mechanical device to help with the house work—a sort of combination vacuum-cleaner / drinks trolley. That's how they described him!
Instead she gets the tender, suave and brilliant Steel Man, not to say model-handsome. The slight hesitations in his movements may just be perfect poise. "I do rugs," he assures her.
Rights available:  All
Other information:  Steel Man was originally a story in Descant, and the stage version has been performed twice in NY, once in LA. Now it's a novel and a film project, http://tinyurl.com/apwmmtv.
