If Rod Serling had ended each of those good ol' Twilight Zone episodes with scriptures from the Good Book instead of poignant platitudes, the stories collected herein would have fit perfectly. But these tales go far beyond being reminiscent of that classic series; Setzer's stories stand on their own, and they stand apart. Each one pulls the reader in unawares with realistic dialogue and genuine characters, and by the time it's clear something is amiss (with the appearance of a crazy old lady, or time travel, or doppelgangers, or angels, or demons, or plant monsters), we're so invested in these fictional people that we've got to find out what happens next. That's the hallmark of good, old-fashioned storytelling. I had difficulty following just a couple of the stories (probably because they were sequels to tales from the first volume: Zero Hour: Stories of Spiritual Suspense), but my favorite of the bunch has to be "Zap Zachary Returns." It has the flavor of Galaxy Quest to it and could easily be expanded into a very humorous SF serial.

A sequel to his collection, Zero Hour: Stories of Spiritual Suspense, Setzer visits some familiar worlds as well as brand new territory.
The 12 stories cover a number of themes dear to hearts of readers of speculative fiction: time travel, alternate universes, vengeance (both mundane and supernatural), demonic doppelgangers, man-eating plants, and more. Ranging from fantasy, to science fiction, to dark fantasy a reader who enjoys their speculative fiction mixed with a spiritual message will enjoy Setzer's latest collection.
