Without Omens

Rated 5.00/5 based on 1 reviews
The first star ship from Earth with hopes of making momentous discoveries during its deep-space explorations. But what the three lonely voyagers aboard the vessel find is of far greater importance than even they could have conceived of, or possibly imagined, for it may just answer the question of the "Great Silence" of the universe itself, but not in a way that anyone would have wished...

Review by: George Kempland on July 31, 2010 :
Here we have a story that appeared in Aberrant Dreams Magazine, as well as in a Podcast, from what I’ve been able to find out. And with good reason. This is a dark tale, one with a mystery to it. Mankind’s first star ship is exploring the depths of interstellar space, hoping to find alien life and civilizations. Well, they do. But, as the story opening says, “They were all dead when we found them.” And herein lies the mystery; what happened to all these civilizations? Exactly how did they die? And what does antimatter have to do with it, and why? For the three intrepid explorers, the answers may well answer the question of Enrico Fermi’s paradox, his Great Silence of the universe. Why aren’t other races contacting humans? Without Omens might well have the answers, and they aren’t good ones! I thoroughly recommend you read Without Omens. If this tale doesn’t shake you up, disturb your world view, then nothing will!

Without Omens, by Rob Shelsky, gets a five-star rating from me.
