Scientist, B. Lou Ferry has created the perfect man, or so he thought. A man made of biological and electronic mechanical technology. Noccio has one slight problem however; he doesn't know how to feel.

Ferry decides to quickly remedy that situation, so he loads Noccio in the hovercraft and drops him off at the edge of the city, with instructions to learn what emotion "is." Ferry then tells Noccio that he will be back in one week.

But Noccio, who has no real concept of time, waits and watches for his creator to return. Finally, Noccio computes that he is low on energy and decides to sit down.

Marina Torez, lands her hovercraft on the landing pad outside her home, and notices a man sitting on her curb. He is dressed in a uniform, but that seems strange since she hadn’t requested work to be done. Marina approaches him, and notices how devastatingly handsome the stranger is; sandy brown hair, warm brown eyes, perfect nose, square jaw with a shallow cleft in his chin. He is totally masculine, but does the uniform mean that he could he be a prisoner? She didn’t usually ogle men on the side of the road, but this man is compelling. Finally, Marina figures he must be a misplaced robot, and feeling a little bit ridiculous invites him in for food. After all, he has told her he was low on energy. Perhaps he derives his energy from food.

Noccio accepts the invitation and soon learns all that a man needs to know about feeling. Marina, however, is the one with the problem. She simply cannot believe that he is a real man not a robot, even with his ever-ready cock at full mast. This eventually frustrates Noccio to no end, and he sets out to learn (mainly from the videocom) how to pleasure Marina in a way only a “real man” can.

Veronica Chase does a fine job in Noccio. It’s a quick, light-hearted, erotic futuristic tale, and Ms. Chase wastes no time getting right to the heart of the matter or should I say, right to the “hard” of the matter. It may be a real quick read, but I found myself thinking about Noccio long after the story ended.

Great work Ms. Chase!
