"If you have a gut response to a story, you are not responding to something new ..you are really responding to a story you were told when you were six or sevenů"
- Samuel R. Delany

Reggie the Bartending Machine  
  A mechanism able to mix drinks; a robot bartender.  

Like any good bartender, Reggie can even tell stories. And have special favorites among the patrons.

"Protect her, Max," said Reggie.

"Her?"

"The Cyborg de Milo," said Reggie. "She's half-robot. I feel a remarkable affinity toward her."

"You got the hots for a lady cyborg?" asked Max.

"Just do what I asked."
