BESIDE STILL WATERS
BY ROBERT SHECKLEY
When people talk about getting away from it all, they are usually thinking Beside Still Waters by Robert Sheckley about our great open spaces out west. But to science fiction writers, that would be practically in the heart of Times Square. When a man of the future wants solitude he picks a slab of rock floating in space four light years Beside Still Waters by Robert Sheckley east of Andromeda. Here is a gentle little story about a man who sought Beside Still Waters by Robert Sheckley the solitude of such a location. And who did he take along for company? None other than Charles the Robot.
Mark Rogers was a prospector, and he went to Beside Still Waters by Robert Sheckley the asteroid belt looking for radioactives and rare metals. He searched for years, never finding much, hopping from fragment to fragment. After a time he settled on a slab of rock half a mile thick.
Rogers had been born old, and he Beside Still Waters by Robert Sheckley didn't age much past a point. His face was white with the pallor of space, and his hands shook a little. He called his slab of rock Beside Still Waters by Robert Sheckley Martha, after no girl he had ever Beside Still Waters by Robert Sheckley known.
He made a little strike, enough to equip Martha with an air pump and a shack, a few tons of dirt and some water tanks, and a robot. Then he settled back and watched the Beside Still Waters by Robert Sheckley stars.
The robot he bought was a Beside Still Waters by Robert Sheckley standard model all around worker, with built in memory and a thirty word vocabulary. Mark added to that, bit by bit. He was something of a tinkerer, and he enjoyed adapting his environment to himself.
At first, all the robot could say was "Yes, sir," and "No, sir." He could state simple problems: "The air pump is laboring, sir." "The corn is budding, sir." He could perform a satisfactory salutation: "Good morning, sir."
Mark changed that. He eliminated the "sirs" from the robot's vocabulary; equality was the rule on Mark's Beside Still Waters by Robert Sheckley hunk of rock. Then he dubbed the robot Charles, after a father he had never known.
As the years passed, the Beside Still Waters by Robert Sheckley air pump began to labor a little as it converted the oxygen in the planetoid's rock into a breathable atmosphere. The air seeped into space, and the Beside Still Waters by Robert Sheckley pump worked a little harder, supplying more.Beside Still Waters by Robert Sheckley
The crops continued to grow on the tamed black dirt of the planetoid. Looking up, Mark could see the sheer blackness of the river of space, the floating points of the stars. Around him, under him, Beside Still Waters by Robert Sheckley overhead, masses of rock drifted, and sometimes the starlight glinted from their black sides. Occasionally, Mark caught a glimpse of Mars or Jupiter. Once he thought he saw Earth.
Mark began to tape new responses into Charles. He added simple responses to cue words. When he said, "How does it look?" Charles would answer, "Oh, pretty good, I guess."
At first the answers were what Mark had been answering himself, in the long dialogue held over the years. But, slowly, he began to build a new personality into Charles.
Mark had always been suspicious and scornful of women. But for some reason he didn't tape the same suspicion into Charles. Charles' outlook was quite different.
"What do Beside Still Waters by Robert Sheckley you think of girls?" Mark would ask, sitting on a packing case outside the shack, after the chores were done.
"Beside Still Waters by Robert Sheckley Oh, I don't know. You have to find the right one." The robot would reply dutifully, repeating what had been put on its tape.
"I never Beside Still Waters by Robert Sheckley saw a good one yet," Mark would say.
"Well, that's not fair. Perhaps you didn't look long enough. There's a girl in the world for every man."
"You're a romantic!" Mark would say scornfully. The robot would pause a built in pause and chuckle a carefully constructed chuckle.
"I dreamed of a girl named Martha once," Charles would say. "Maybe if I would have looked, I would have found her."
And then it would be bedtime. Or perhaps Mark would want more conversation. "What do you think of girls?" he would ask again, and the discussion would follow its same course.
Charles grew old. His limbs lost their flexibility, and some of his wiring started to corrode... Continue reading book >>
