A force field stumps a group of intrepid explorers. Two time-travelers mess with time at their own peril. And what happens when not one, but two dark prophecies clash head-on?
These are just a few of the stories in You’re in for a Ride, a collection of speculative and science fiction short stories that explore our perception of the world around us. Is there more to the world than we can see, or can our senses deceive us?
Review 5 of 5 Stars
I received a copy of this book of short stories in return for an honest review.
I really enjoyed this book of short stories from Mr. Rossis. I like the way he used the story You’re in for a Ride to tie the book together a bit. If I remember correctly, he did the same thing with another short story collection, either The Power of Six or Infinite Waters. I can’t remember which it was, but I liked that it gave the book of short stories the feel of being whole.
As for this collection of short stories, I especially enjoyed You Can’t Fight Prophecy. It had a certain poetic justice shall we say. I also enjoyed Heavy Sits the Frown. It was a good story about putting yourself in another person’s shoes. Royal Duties also deserves a mention. I wasn’t expecting the ending and that is always refreshing.
As this is a book of short stories I won’t be going into more detail regarding the stories. I like having short story collections that I can read as I have time and this one worked very nicely. I very much enjoyed this collection and hope you might as well.
I previously reviewed the Pearseus science fiction series on the blog, which was interesting and original. If you’re interested in seeing more of Mr. Rossis work, you can find his books on Amazon or on his site at http://nicholasrossis.me/. Happy Reading.
