Prejudice and Misconceptions

Robbie Sheerin Author Interview

Tales from Another Dimension is a collection of short stories centered around classic science fiction themes. What was the inspiration for this collection of short stories?

I am constantly inspired to write. But some of the biggest influences are, Asimov, Heinlein, HG Wells, Robert Silverberg, and Dan Brown. I am also a huge fan of The Twilight Zone, X-Files, Spielberg, and Doctor Who.

What were some of your inspirations as a writer?

One of the major themes throughout these 10 stories, is that of prejudice and misconceptions of people, or things that are different than ourselves. I wanted to explore prejudice and other qualities that are not attractive.

What were some themes that were important for you to explore in this book?

In the case of sci-fi, we are always quick to judge aliens, robots, and other beings, yet we don’t look at ourselves.

Each story in this book explores this from different angles, and hopefully makes us re-evaluate how we look at the world.

What is the next book that you are working on and when will it be available?

“With the help of an ancient alien relic, a band of heros will save the universe from the tyrannical Galactic Realm.” 

The Orb is due out early next year. It will be a novella/novel, and will be part of a trilogy. It is a space opera full of fun characters, twists and space science.

How will HG Wells react when he awakes 200 years in the future on a strange planet, faced with a terrible truth?

Two young brothers make a frightening discovery about the neighbors.

Do robots secretly want to rule us all?

A scientist goes to extremes to change the future of mankind. But is it possible to change our destiny?

Tales from another dimension is a strange and fantastical collection of ten short stories. Robbie Sheerin is inspired by classic Sci-fi, invoking nightmarish twists and turns with each story. Travel to another dimension and meet strange characters, sometimes human, and at times not so human. They will make you question the solidity of the earth and mankind. Explore prejudice, fear, imagination, kindness, empathy, and human frailty.
