Short Stories III: Strange, Weird & Sci-Fi continues Rich DiSilvio’s exploration of literary genres beyond the historical fiction employed in much of his other work. The stories in this volume fall within the realm of speculative fiction and embrace many common themes of the genre: time travel, dystopian futures, and sentient artificial intelligence, to name a few.

Some of the stories draw upon the political and cultural climates of the present day. In one story, unchecked prejudices stoked b

A collection of well written 7 stories by the Author Rich DiSilvo. I Have been an ardent follower of his works over a period of time now, I can certainly say that this is something new. Rich has successfully created an amazing new genre that simply highlights one fact – he is simply an amazing Author that understands what it takes to create an entertaining story.
The story flows very well and has a way of gradually capturing the reader’s mind. Just as the name implies, there is a touch of weirdn

I've had the pleasure of reading most all of DiSilvio's books, and this latest effort of his highlights his excellent skills as a writer and storyteller. This is a new genre for him, as it is for me as well.

All of the stories are well developed and hold the reader's interest. Each one offers a redemptive end, which is both edifying and pretty remarkable. The spiritual undertones touched on my moral fibers and presented interesting questions for us all. I believe the short stories would be great

Interesting reading! I was interested to read different stories in one book. I really enjoyed reading. Each story is unique and independent, that is, it does not depend on others. I believe that in general it can be said that all the stories have a deep meaning. It made me think, and I really appreciate it in the books. Also, some stories describe serious and contemporary topics (problems) of society - culture, politics ... I found a lot about art, dystopia, timeframes, artificial intelligence. ...more

Fun and various stories for consumption

This is a nice collection of short stories that cover a variety of genre. I love to read short stories when i have a little spare time. This book was a good read and the variety of stories kept me interested and engaged from the first page. There are several twists along these shorts. Adam and Adams is one of the stories that takes an unexpected turn on the journey to the last 4 people alive in the world which is two men and two women until tragedy strikes

Definite pros and cons

Short Stories III is the latest Rich DiSilvio book I’ve read. While his books aren’t usually the type of book I prefer, I enjoy it enough to continuing reading what he produces. I was intrigued by this novel as I loved the ideas of short stories: something I could read as the baby napped. The first story, as it talked about how the world is changing and is a worse place than before, really turned me off. It felt too political for a fictional novel. It left me with a bad tas
