Robot, by Helena Bell
I'm finding myself reviewing stories much more as writing than as stories, these days. Maybe I've read so many I've seen it all? Have been thinking about writing? Don't know. But short stories really lend themselves to that sort of review. Authors can do their experiments in short form, doing things that would be tiring in a novel. Like writing it in second person, the way Robot is done by Helena Bell. The narrator is orienting her alien robot health aid, but doing it in a very literary way. I liked it fine, you would too. 3 stars.
