With Worlds Collide II, the second volume of Rob Shelsky's dark stories, we pick up where the first volume ended. Included in this anthology is a novella, An Imperial Death. This intricately wrought tale could be called space opera, but is also much more! Along with this piece are dark sci-fi stories, a dark fantasy about a spirit elemental, and an Indiana Jones-style tale of treasure hunting.
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.
