Review by: George Kempland on July 27, 2010 :
If Looks Could Kill by Rob Shelsky. This is a dark, compelling piece! If you like your sci-fi dark, strangely erotic without being explicit, you'll love, If Looks Could Kill, by Rob Shelsky. This is a post-apocalyptic tale of a new type of plague, and how it is spread is the strangest of all aspects of this story. The hero is an antihero, someone you feel sorry for, and yet he comes across almost like a mouse mesmerized by a snake. You can't help but keep on reading to find out what happens to him.

There is some really really superb writing here. Rob Shelsky is a consummate wordsmith, a master of dark description in my estimation. If you want nightmares, then read this chilling tale just before bedtime. If Looks Could Kill is sure to affect your dreams! And not in a good way.
