6 Fantasy Stories by Robert Jeschonek

Welcome to six of the most amazing fantasy stories you'll ever read. This volume includes five full-length fantasy e-book stories plus an exclusive bonus short story for one low price. The lineup includes the following fantastic tales:

"Forced Retirement": What if Alzheimer's struck the World's Mightiest Hero? His daughter, heroic Hericane, finds out the hard way. Gripped by dementia, godlike Epitome tears apart a city, and no one can stop him. Will his madness destroy the entire world? Not if Hericane recruits the one big gun who stands a chance in Hell of stopping her father in his tracks. But the battle of the century between the super-charged titans might just kick-start the Apocalypse instead of stopping it. Because Epitome and his nemesis have much more in common than ultimate power. The shocking secret they share could turn history itself inside out.

"Blazing Bodices": Hardcore adventurer Sir Algernon Hogshead takes down badass steampunks in Victorian London. But the case of a lifetime might just ruin his winning streak and his life. When his wife starts keeping mysterious secrets and bad company, Sir Hogshead craves a peek behind the velvet curtain. But he can't possibly break through the world of women...or can he? Sparks fly when this manliest man crosses the line and takes on the undercover assignment he never imagined. Will a dress and corset enable a pulp action hero to blow the lid off a female threat without blowing his cover? Sometimes, the most awful surprises can lurk behind the most ridiculous outfits.

"Mr. Flood": Thanks to the sorcerous Mr. Flood, Johnstown, Pennsylvania has drowned three times...and the fourth time will be the charm. By the time he gets done flooding Johnstown, the city will vanish beneath the waves forever...unless his flood-making apprentice, Dee, has anything to say about it. Refusing to let the fourth flood sink Johnstown, young Dee uses her own powers against her wicked mentor, setting off a battle of magic rainmakers in the heart of the raging storm. Will thousands of people drown in the ultimate deluge? Will madness and destruction doom Johnstown to an eternal watery grave? Or will hope and heart turn back the tide of history, striking a blow against darkness and disaster?

"The Genie's Secret": A sexy genie held captive by a brutal master has no choice: she must obey his twisted wishes at all costs. When a federal agent with a flair for the supernatural comes to the rescue, the genie must obey her master's orders to capture and torture him. But the agent knows the genie's deepest secret, a passion so powerful it could free her forever from servitude. A passion that could unleash the wildest magic that burns in her heart, a spell of pure love that no man can resist or destroy. A spell that will change everything for genie, master, and rescuer alike.

"Rose Head": In a world where everyone has a flower for a head, who can stop the serial killer called the Pruner? Enter Inspector Glisten, a hard-boiled, two-fisted, rose-headed cop who'll stop at nothing to cut down the Pruner. But when the trail leads to a seedy underworld he never imagined, Glisten gets in way over his rose-head. His rosy world blows apart in an explosion of deadly flower power, leaving Inspector Glisten to fight for his life with guns blazing against a harvest of terror that could bring everything he knows and loves crashing down around him.

"The Duck Lover": In this special bonus story, a duck fights to save the man she loves from the heartless woman who uses and abuses him. Will his broken heart drive him to destruction, or will the ducks' ultimate secret lead to his salvation in the most amazing journey of all time?

These fantasy masterpieces will race you out to the edge of reality and blow your mind. Don't miss the uncut versions of these stories, collected here from Tsetse Press for the first time anywhere.
