Alfred Hitchcock made Mt. Rushmore the perfect location a big budget cinematic chase full of mystery and intrigue. Since North by Northwest Mt. Rushmore continues to be a popular landmark for adventures: National Treasure: Book of Secrets and Ben 10. Now S. L. Gilbow visits with his story of a homesick robot horribly damaged in an accident on the moon.
Andreanna the title character of the story is an Androbriefer who has been working on the moon for some undisclosed amount of time. Her purpose there and the reason behind her accident (falling three stories in the only room with Earth gravity on the moon base) is presented as a series of "slides" jumbled together with human dialogue as different people try to fix her.
The story reminds me most of "Mars, A Traveler's Guide" by Ruth Nestvold in the January 2008 issue of F&SF.

Thanks for stopping by Short Story Sunday.
