Review by: George Kempland on July 29, 2010 :
Shepherd of Babylon by Rob Shelsky is a different take on the whole Lovecraftian idea. Here, we have the evil god, Dagon, and his dark influences being more indirect, but just as powerful in their way. In this tale, an Archbishop of New York is posed with a difficult question, to accept immortality as gifted to humanity by the returning Dagon, and obey his church’s will on the matter, or defy it and the god, Dagon.

His choice, reasons, and how he goes about it, forms the crux of this powerful tale of one man’s conscience, his right to choose, but what he chooses will surprise you, especially for a man of the cloth! A good read, one that keeps you engrossed to the very end. If you like dark science fiction tales that are thought provoking, as well, you’ll very much like Shepherd of Babylon by Rob Shelsky.
