A darker story with some unusual main characters, an insane scientist (Oberon) and the constable (Sam) who has been in love with him for many years. Sam captured and turned in Oberon five years ago and married him just before his incarceration in a maximum security facility, only able to see him every three months during conjugal visits. Guilt gnaws at Sam, so he helps Oberon with a scheme to break him out of the prison. The whole of the story is the break-out attempt filtered through Sam's views on his relationship with Oberon, with Bobby (an automaton designed by Oberon to help with his escape), and his gut-churning uncertainty over his choices of loving an unstable madman and an unemotional automaton.
This was exactly what I asked for, and I loved it. It is fraught with Sam's uncertainty of his undeniable love and his dire predicament. Is releasing this man upon the world the right thing to do, even though leaving him in the corrupt prison facility is unfathomable as well? This was well-told, and the language used really drew me in. And the ending was quite a surprise as well. Great story. =)
