About the Book

"Bodyguard" is a science fiction short story written by H. L. Gold. It provides an engrossing and thought-provoking investigation of futuristic topics and ethical quandaries. "Bodyguard" is set in a future where advanced technology has revolutionized society and revolves around Crispin DeFord, a guy who works as a "bodyguard" for individuals. These bodyguards, however, are not traditional defenders; rather, they are masters in manipulating probability and anticipating accidents or threats. They use their abilities to avoid mishaps and keep their clients safe. As the novel progresses, Crispin is confronted with a moral conundrum when he sees a customer who seeks protection from a hypothetical event involving a terrible moral choice. Crispin questions the ethics of changing probabilities to assist harm, even if the customer requests it. "Bodyguard" by H. L. Gold dives into complicated topics of ethics, free choice, and the effects of technology on human conduct. It asks readers to consider the moral consequences of employing modern technology to predict and influence events, even if those events may cause harm to others.
