Pete Tzinski, an editor at BBT Magazine, has begun a new project – God in the Machine. In order to promote his new online serial, we decided to do an informal interview to give readers more information…
Angela: So what is God in the Machine?
Pete: God in the Machine is a science fiction series. IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢d trot out the old Ã¢â‚¬Å“in the tradition ofÃ¢â‚¬Â¦Ã¢â‚¬Â line, except that if I tell you what the direct parents are of the seriesÃ¢â‚¬Â¦itÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ll give away plot details from later on. ItÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s the story of a robot named Loeb Ã¢â‚¬â€œ and his apparent companion, a bigger robot named Max Ã¢â‚¬â€œ who are caught in an electromagnetic storm which, instead of destroying them, brings them Ã¢â‚¬Å“awake.Ã¢â‚¬Â They suddenly think and, more importantly, they feel. The problem is, to the rest of the galaxy of robots (and there are only robots left), this is nothing but damage to be repaired. To start with, itÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s the story of them surviving.
The series is about quite a lot more than that, ultimately, but thatÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s its humble origin. ThatÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s where we begin.
