Rod burners. Scaff dawgs. Laggers.
Bucket dumpers. Lerps. Duct monkeys. Tin knockers.
Lumbergs. Artificial big guys. Product of a troubled firm.
They’re easy to treat like trash.
But not so easy to ignore. Especially the ones experiencing the wake up:
The idea was that they could work hidden in society’s plain sight
allowing humanity time to get used to the fact
of sentient machines.
But it’s all too easy for others to take advantage
of those who live on the edge.
What they, and their allies, must do
is work out who, and why,
before it gets too late.
Expected January 15th, 2019 in paperback and eBook. See Beaten Track’s website for details.
Praise for Trevor Barton
“Trevor gives a voice, heart and soul to all his characters regardless of their genesis or their specific species or origins.” “Gay or straight, robot, human, AI and alien alike will be in awe of the brilliance that is Trevor Barton, who is quickly making it to the top of my favorites list.” – W.C. Bitner, Jr. (a Netgalley reviewer)
“Mr. Barton’s writing [is] crisp, well-crafted, and to the point. It’s not florid and it doesn’t go into a lot of needless detail. Yeah, it’s a tad geeky… [T]hat’s part of what makes [it] so enjoyable.” OJHeSay
Trevor’s debut (Brobots) got nominated for a Gaylactic Spectrum Award in 2017 and reached the top 2% for LGBT science fiction on a web store. Subsequent books in the trilogy performed similarly and received mention in Geek Syndicate, QueerSciFi, and Gay Star News. A netgalley professional gave the series five stars.
