Where Worlds Collide by Rob Shelsky is a fascinating read. His stories tend to be dark, but always seem to involve some hope, which I like. And his novella, an Imperial Death was VERY well written. The entire anthology is terrific. I loved Treasure Of The Guardian Templar, a heck of an adventure/treasure hunting story set in modern times. And I particularly liked the one done as a tribute to H.P. Lovecraft, a darker look at religion and immortality, in Shepherd Of Babylon. Five full stars!

Where Worlds Collide II is an anthology and it constitutes the second such volume of author, Rob Shelsky. In this book we have more of his darker science fiction stories. Mr. Shelsky includes a good-sized novella, An Imperial Death.

Mr. Shelsky’s other short stories in this volume run the gamut from an H.P. Lovecraftian piece of a different type, evil spirit elementals, a cozy murder mystery set aboard a space yacht and asteroid, dark conspiracies, and more. I give five stars.
