To Unimagined Shores is a collection of short stories written by Sherry D. Ramsey. 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

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 ...more

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. Recommended!

Sherry D. Ramsey's short stories are filled with vibrant characters, good writing, and thrum with humanity, even when there aren't many actual humans in the story. Fans of speculative fiction should definitely check out To Unimagined Shores.

I enjoyed this book, especially the fantasy tales. Many of the SF tales were a tad dark for me, however.

Still a great read. Totally worth it.
