Shiva, Mama Doc, And The Voodoo Computer, by Rob Shelsky, is a delightfully fun story, but with some darker connotations. When a young postgraduate student, Ian, completes the programming for the first quantum super computer at Tulane University, all hell breaks loose. It seems the very universe may cease to be as we know it if something isn’t done, and done quickly. Enter Mama Doc, an astute African-American woman who owns a voodoo ship for the tourists in the French Quarter of New Orleans. She’s been selling Ian voodoo dolls. Can she help Ian save the day, or is it too late for that? And just who is she?
Rob Shelsky creates a very fun character with Mama Doc. She is a fully fleshed-out, three dimensional character of the first order! A connoisseur of opera and art, she is also very knowledgeable about sympathetic magic. Perhaps, too knowledgeable, because it seems…well, I won’t spoil the story for you. I’ll tell you this--I’d love to see more stories about her!
I thoroughly enjoyed Shiva, Mama Doc, And The Voodoo Computer (must be one of the longer titles for a short story). This story by Rob Shelsky justly deserves a rating of five stars from me!
