Benjamin Long's KiLROY is the story of an alternate future society where robots were created by a god as the dominant civilization on Earth, and humans, or workers, were made to do their work for them. On his 18th birthday, an unnamed robot is given the task to manage a dangerous gang of rogue workers that are fighting to make workers the dominant civilization. When he becomes caught up in their struggle, he learns that everything taught to him in history class was a lie that was created to cover up a sinister plot. Taking on the name of KiLROY, he vows to fight alongside the workers to put them back into power, and to send the cruel robotic dictator that calls himself the president to the gates of Hell. Full of interesting characters, intriguing concepts and high techlogy, KiLROY paints the city of Houston in a realistically disturbing light with an undertone that will be recognized by any Houstonian. The key to this story is one simple question: 'What if...' This is Part 1 of 3 of the serialized vel KiLROY, A Novel.
