The Conscientious Objectors by Grey

Susan Calvin investigates a malfunction at a robotic assembly line. A simple but thought-provoking story, which could easily have been written by Asimov himself

[Added 03/01/2007; Drama; 2500-6000; Isaac Asimov; Characters: Susan Calvin, Alfred Lanning, R. Daneel Olivaw, OCs]

A Woman's Touch by Sath

'"If you'd asked me what I thought the impact of pseudo-female 'companion robots' would be before going ahead with the MR project, I would've told you it'd end exactly like this."' A short case for Susan Calvin that forms a loose sequel to 'Lenny'. Sath successfully retains a strong feel of canon despite distancing the story a little from Asimov's gender prejudices. Believable & poignant
