Dr. Easy (by Shynola)
Michael is a broken man with a gun. He is surrounded by armed police. A robot with medical training is dispatched to negotiate – but can it save him?
(‘Dr. Easy’ is the prologue for a planned feature adaptation of Matthew de Abaitua’s novel “The Red Men”, which, first published (with my involvement) in 2007, features robotic policemen, virtual workers, algorithmic creativity, austerity-based techno-rejectionism and much else, and as such prefigures a range of New Aesthetic interests.)
