    There is a certain level of creepy to Day's story that grows and grows as this short story advances. We've all heard the various ways that mankind is overthrown by robots, but Day's version sounds like both a paradise and nightmare, depending on which viewpoint you choose to take.I really enjoyed For Your Safety and it was perfectly sized for my bus ride home from work. Day's descriptions provided a very vivid look at what his anthropormorphic animals were doing to the world, and the way he handled 'furries' was unique and interesting. This was refreshing to read, and I found myself wondering if it wasn't all bad by the end of the story.That said, when everything gets explained, the story hits a large amount of dialogue and explanations which immediately kills the forward momentum of the story. We started in an action heavy scene, only for it to slow to a crawl as the protagonist heals and then is taken away. The way things pan out works wonderfully for the story, but the change in pacing takes a bit to get used to.In the end, Day has crafted a well written story that presents a different take on robot uprisings. It gets you thinking, and makes you consider if perhaps, just maybe, it really is just for our safety...
