Does the story end with the telepath's suspicions silenced when he dies in a tragic "accident" tripped by a dog?

OK. That's the one I remember, then. My memory usually doesn't screw up author attributions that badly ...

They're fuzzy!

I've used that as a coping mechanism before.

I still do. 


It helps to have one at hand as a reference, though.

If an AnthroPC can be installed in a spider body, why not in a dog or cat chassis?

Or a bird. Yelling Bird is a bird chassis that got loaded with a personality from the same base code as Pintsize.

No, Yelling Bird got loaded with all the Dark Side aspects of Pintsize.

He is actually a Sith.

Initialising nerd mode…   loaded.


Are they following the rule of two, defined by Darth Bane?


Quote
Two there should be; no more, no less. One to embody power, the other to crave it.

Then who is the master, and who is the apprentice? Is Pintsize the apprentice of yelling bird? Is he going to kill yelling bird to become master himself? Will he corrupt Winslow and have him his new apprentice?

By the way, what happened to Winslow?

Like all Apple products, he's been made obsolete by being two or three generations old.

Is there a reason that you felt the need to post this four times in as many places?

Probably a bot. Same thing was posted a couple of days ago.

Spammed posts have been removed. Hopefully I didn't break anything important in the process.

Looks good.

That particular spammer has some problems generalizing from experience. She got banned in a heartbeat on her first visit. Should have figured out this place is defended.
