Once again, I just read Tanith Lee's fabulous girl-come-of-age faery tale
Mother, I am in love with a robot.
No. She isn't going to like that.
Mother, I am in love.
Are you, darling?
Oh, yes, Mother, yes I am. His hair is auburn, and his eyes are very large. Like amber. And his skin is silver.
Mother, I'm in love.
With whom, dear?
His name is Silver.
Yes. It stands for Silver Ionized Locomotive Verisumulated Electronic Robot.
Silence. Silence. Silence.
The Silver Metal Lover.
Best. Tanith. Lee. Novel. Ever.
