I would think this new A.I. would likely work mostly in Erma's best interests as her interests and the A.I.'s interests probably align quite well with each other.
Steve — got an email address I could reach you at?
I've got something slightly off-topic I'd like to ask you.
Thank you for posting this up up,I heard about this series back in the '80s through the RPG but couldn't find out more as finding the comic was impossible in NZ. Chanced upon this site after finding the RPG again and I've just spent the last couple of days reading this from the beginning. Wow! Brilliant, brilliant stuff.
