My short story (or is it a flash fiction?) The Relationship Algorithms has been published courtesy of Synaesthesia Magazine. This is my first, and possibly only, Companion Sex Robot story.
It was partly inspired by a visit to Japan last year when I learned that despite being a heavily populated country, loneliness and a lack of companionship are a problem for some people in Japanese society.
The illustration that Synaesthesia Magazine used alongside the story is by Claudia Chelo, a talented artist. You can follow her on Instagram here: @claudia_ch93
