Showing Rating details. More filters. Sort order. Dec 21, Karen Field rated it really liked it. To Unimagined Shores is a collection of short stories written by Sherry D. They include science fiction and fantasy stories, as well as a collection of 'related' stories. What I especially like about the author's writing style is her ability to tell a story using different 'voices'.
My favourite in this collection is "The Longest Distance" -- a story set in the past, but delves into the future -- it was so different to the other stories, and it really captivated my imagination. The story reminded me of Well's "The Time Machine" in regards to era and tone, but Ramsey took this story in another direction. Then there is "The Big Freeze". A story showing how even the devil can have a bad day. I found it to be amusing and well written. The characters compliment each other. They are like modern day mystery stories, but set in a fantasy world. I loved the contrast between the mage and his apprentice.
I loved the humour too. But mostly I enjoyed the clarity in which the stories are written and the well developed characters that make the stories worth reading. They are superb. There are stories about aliens, crop circles, murder mysteries and even drugs! The characters seem real. The scenarios are true to life. They are not predictable. To Unimagined Shores is a book that will take you out of your everyday life and plant you in a place where strange things are happening.

Although I had already read most of the stories in this book at one point or another the author being my lovely and talented sister , I found the entire collection to be engaging, compelling, and utterly enjoyable. In fact, I was supposed to be finishing a library book whose lending period was running out, but I kept putting it on hold to return to these stories!
I ended up renewing the library book so that I can finish it now that I have finished reading To Unimagined Shores. Sci-fi and fantas Although I had already read most of the stories in this book at one point or another the author being my lovely and talented sister , I found the entire collection to be engaging, compelling, and utterly enjoyable.

Sci-fi and fantasy fans, you should definitely check out this collection! Dec 20, Nancy rated it it was amazing Shelves: read The lively stories in this collection are--by turns--unique, funny, endlessly interesting and totally entertaining. Sherry Ramsey has obviously been working her tail off writing and getting her stories published for the last decade or so. These stories all but one were first published in an impressive variety of magazines, journals and anthologies.
Now that she's collected them here, you can enjoy hours upon hours of her delightful imagination and excellent writing.

More Books by Sherry D. Ramsey
Many of the SF tales were a tad dark for me, however. Still a great read. These poems strive across the distance between generations who lived poor and those whose plenty is not enough. Work is so much a part of these poems, that making the reader work makes sense — makes satisfaction.
Any Anxious Body
Part documentary poetics, part New York School improvisation, Any Anxious Body reveals the ways in which the self is a poem, constructed as it is from a series of improbable collisions that become inevitable in retrospect. This book will make you cup your ear to the door of the past and listen more closely. These are resonant poems that command us to look closer at each detail. Read the full review here.
