Really High Quality Classic Sci-Fi

I had never heard of Felix Boyd before. After I enjoyed listening to this short story, I checked Audible for other titles he has done, but found nothing. THIS is the ONLY piece of Boyd's work available on Audible. Kind of weird considering how great of a little story this was.

The story IS one of those science fiction clichés in which a robot struggles with primitive emotions, but it was executed really well.

Pick this one up if you, like me, enjoy your 50's style sci-fi. It's cheap!
