Customer Review

on 18 January 2013
The Eye with Which the Universe Beholds Itself is the second in Ian Sales' hard SciFi alternate reality Apollo quartet novellas. Each novella gives us a glimpse at a world where the Apollo program started in the same places as our own, but diverted onto a different, longer, and more successful path. In Eye, Sales retains the stylistic approach that grounded Adrift and made it feel like a realistic extension of the Apollo program. Rather than Adrift's Apollo program that lead to a moonbase, Eye gives us an Apollo program that leads to a NASA landing on Mars at Cydonia in 1980. As was the case with Adrift, Sales provides the reader with an extensive glossary that details the Apollo and later Ares programs, deftly weaving real history with alternate universe extrapolation. If you loved the atmosphere that Sales evoked in Adrift, you'll love Eye. Eye is a worthy successor to Adrift and I can't wait to read the next novella in Sales' Apollo quartet.
