4 1/2 stars for Immunity to Strange Tales

Susan Forest’s short speculative fiction collection, Immunity to Strange Tales, recently received this 4 1/2 star review on LibraryThing.

Available from Amazon

This review was written for LibraryThing Early Reviewers.

Immunity to Strange Tales is a collection of twelve short stories, most of which could be considered Sci-Fi, most of which I enjoyed greatly.

Outstanding were the stories Back (about a Time Machine), The Right Chemistry (about Atoms), Tomorrow and Tomorrow (about what one is willing to do to ensure there is a tomorrow), Killing the Cat (about mind control) and Orange (about the end of the world). These stories were thought-provoking and after finishing these I had to pause and reflect about the message / morale contained within.

The other stories were also intriguing and thought provoking, but not as memorable as the ones mentioned above.

I can wholeheartedly recommend this collection to anyone who enjoys sci-fi and short stories.

I received this book as part of the LibraryThing Early Reviewers Program. ( )
