Jay’s obsolete biotech Eyes are what’s holding him back. He’s not made of money, however, so when he gets a chance to upgrade on the cheap, he takes it.
We could have left him there, had Jay’s new system not gone haywire. When Jay goes in search of a good anti-virus, he’s told that what he really needs is a séance.
Jay’s system is used, you see, so the Eyes he’s got rattling around in his head once belonged to someone else. And that someone else won’t let Jay get on with his life until he takes care of a little unfinished business.
The Eyes Have It is a humourous, slightly gruesome novelette set in the near future.

Life in The Bestiary Pet Shop is very interesting. The rats put on a circus at 10, midnight and 2pm. The goldfish practise synchronised swimming. The mice are interested in modern dance. The birds have begun their own parliament, and Bertie the crow gives lectures on such wide-ranging topics as Meditation for Moulters and Living With Humans.
Six wants more than a life in the shop. Her Talented brothers and sisters have been sold to families of their own. Six hopes that once her Talent makes itself known that she, too, will find a place to call home.
But Six is getting older and her Talent remains hidden. A new litter of puppies will be arriving at the shop soon, and once they do, no one will be interested in buying Six.
Then one night, the shop door is left unlocked.
