After Escape!
‘You see why we decided to send him to see you, Dr. Calvin.’ I managed a weak, apologetic smile in the face of the wall of silence that had spent the last hour building behind the chief robopsychologist’s desk.
As general manager, it was my duty to accompany this client who had been making strange demands of our engineers into our chief robopsychologist’s office. Not a task for the weak-hearted, I can assure you.
Finally Dr. Calvin broke her silence - not that that made the mood in the room any better you understand.
‘You are asking that we alter a robot’s second Law to have it cater to the whims of your child. I don’t think you quite understand the peril you would be putting your child into if we allowed a robot with alterations to the three Laws into your hands.’ she said.
I watched as Dr. Calvin’s face became pensive for a moment, before she seemed to come to a decision and said: ‘But perhaps if I recounted the tale of the

The Hysterical Room
I told my mom I needed to defer my degree again. This is the third time I've had to do this. She was very spiky with me: ‘you’re not ill - you’re just lazy.’
I cannot properly articulate the white hot rage that filled my head.
I emailed my brother and asked him if I could come over for the weekend. I was already buying the train ticket when he said yes. He’s a professor of mental health law and each year deals with the same student problems that I’ve been going through for 3 years now. I knew I could rely on him to give me good advice. I packed my rucksack, told my parents I would be back on Monday, and headed out the front door.
I knew that today, despite all my care with myself, I would be unable to work. I squashed down the hot, self-loathing feeling that came from the knowledge that I have only been managing to work for 20 minutes a day lately, and thought instead about how maybe not having use of a computer for the weekend would encourage me to

'Just sign the contract, and we're done.'
I was watched with interest from behind the smiling Welsh boy as I scrawled a blotchy squiggle onto the form. He edged past me and disappeared into the rain, leaving me to smile damply into the faces of my new housemates. It was almost the end of term for them – they were firsties. I was in the second year of my Masters and well versed in hasty midnight accommodation agreements.
Hauling my half-soaked suitcase up the stairs and along a corridor, I chatted as amicably as I could with those that had dared leave their rooms to greet me. They watched me wipe rainwater along the stained, grey carpet to my room and I made my excuses and locked the door on them. My room was surprisingly large, but unsurprisingly magnolia. This was a good thing, however, as it meant that I wouldn't have to look too hard to find the paint for the walls when I'd finished. An ancient sash window allowed the guttering light from the Victorian-style street l
