on July 31, 2010 :
In a seeming tribute to Aldous Huxley and George Orwell, Mr. Shelsky’s short story, Dystopia, is set in a dark future with a “super state” that acts as a totalitarian regime. When one man falls victim at work of coworkers’ manipulations, he’s branded a traitor. He and his family have little choice but to seek escape, but to where, and how? And who can one trust under such circumstances.
I really enjoyed this tale, because it strips away all the sci-fi necessities, and dwells just on one man, his family, and their desperate attempt to escape, what they go through to try. I say this story is well worth the read, because it will keep you tense, being full of suspense. It will also keep you wondering right to the end, as to whether they make it to safety or not. Rob Shelsky deserves five stars for this tense portrayal of a dark future.
