    Summary Other Days Other Eyes 108 Other Days Other Eyes4 stars for creeping me out with it’s prescience We don’t have slow glass but we have cameras everywhere and social media pressuring us to relieve us of our own privacy for the edification of people who shouldn’t matter to us anyway Some bits of excellent writing flashes of beautifully crafted sentences and images that will stay with me a while Sexist in the way that SFF in the 70s all seemed to be but not jarring enough that it removed me from the story Sigh I really do need to get back to longer better reviews
