Nice little read.
Well, if you want a chuckle or two, (that isn't quite as "politically driven") just try reading Banadin's the "Richard Jackson" tales - supposedly "true, but for a lie or two."

Looking for a story that I think was on SOL about Male and Female programmers who design an A.I. at some facility. For some reason that I can't remember they have to go on the run and the A.I. escapes with them and keeps them from falling into government hands. Eventually at the end the A.I. designs some type of space going vehicle that will house the now couple and itself and they leave earth. That's all I remember. Can someone help me out.

Thanks,

Well, curiosity drove me to checking my 'plot reviews' of various tales I've read. While I'm not sure if what I found is what you want, somehow the plot sounds rather similar: An elderly couple are dying, only they are given a 'miracle drug' that not only cures them, but makes them grow younger - fro there the story goes through a loooooong extended tale of what they did in the next several years. However the last page has mention of the couple and their descendants meeting in some far distant galaxy eons later.
The story I'm referring to was called "Ever and Always" by Banadin and was available on "Stories on Line."
Nice little read.
Not quite what I remember. There where two youngish programmers who created and A.I. that grew and they didn't want it destroyed so they ran.....

more to it but it's all i remember. thanks though!

The one who abducts him or finds him and takes him all over the galaxy is a shape shifter or somekinda race that can change shape. She changes his shape and they explore, make money, invent some stuff. One of the things they do is go to a star system and record the death of a world where a young non-space fairing race lives when their star goes supernova and put a musical score to it and sell it. I think the Alien is named Keety or Keaty or something like that.

Anyone remember this? Pretty sure it was SOL or may be ASSTR possibly buy someone who wrote other sci-fi and then took it all down.
The story was titled "Time of Arrival," posted only on ASSTR and written by 'silli artie' - who unfortunately pulled all his stories a few years back, so if you didn't download a copy and save it yourself, you'll probably have to search for it on 'the wayback machine' or possibly on ASSTR's 'backup files.'
The most recent stable archive for Artie at the Wayback Machine is http://web.archive.org/web/201111211316 ... index.html; there are more recent archives, but they are all from after he pulled the stories or otherwise seriously flawed.

Not that the captures were perfect.

While in a couple of cases the reason there isn't an actual story at the end of a link is because he hadn't actually posted the story at the time he shut everything down, but had created a link for it in advance of posting, there are some where he had posted the story, but somehow the Wayback Machine didn't capture that particular page in any of it's captures.

Actually in this case I believe it might not have been captured was because it was incomplete at the time he pulled his stories. However, knowing "artie" and having corresponded with him about his tales, --- let's just say that the guy was an original.

PS; have found that recent versions of the "wayback machine" are VERY spotty.

Boy Saves Big Dog From Drowning,

Post by callas » Sat Aug 04, 2018 2:11 am

An old book about a boy on his first job on a boat who saves a dog about to drown.

Fired from his job he decides to go to his father's property and cut trees for lumber. The very job that killed his father just before the story started. The dog comes with him and helps drag the logs, sunbathing the but struggled with, to the river where they tie them into a raft and float it down to the sawmill to sell.

I read it after 1995 but the book was much older. I think the dog was a Great Dane, I just remember it was a big dog. I need help identifying the book.

All I can remember about this book I'm looking for is

1) Framed and fired from his job
2) Girlfriend (fiance?) was hooking up with his boss
3) He becomes an alcoholic
4) Ends up fighting an Alien for boozes
5) Winds up on a space station

Any leads appreciated!
