Automated Lovers

Top of page

In a futuristic, dehumanized society, a woman receives permission, via computer, to spend the night out. Her request to attend a bar with automated lovers is denied, but she is told she can go to a mono-bar instead, one where human contact is possible. Intrigued, she goes to the address given, where she meets and falls in love with a man who shares her dreams. Unlike her, however, he is not a free citizen and must stay behind when the ubiquitous computer announces that her time is up. Her requests to return to the mono-bar are continually denied. When at last she is allowed to return, she discovers why the computer delayed her.
