Summary (IBList user synopsis):

Robot - Android - Human. Where does one begin and one end? Asimov's Three Laws of Robotics come into play as Vandaleur and android jaunt across space to escape crimes of the laws of robotics, humanity, and/or both. A claim to identity is never certain, but reason lies in the background as a hopeful saviour.

Published in The Magazine of Fantasy and Science Fiction, August 1954.
