Overview

In these pages, Robert T. Jeschonek will take you on a tour of the wildest places and people you've never imagined. You've never met anyone quite like Heavy, the alien wheeler-dealer with a hundred faces...Imago, the stained glass robot on the trail of the last proto-Christ...Vladimir Lenin, a shapeshifting alien who starts the Communist Revolution…Father Obregon, the genetically-modified space priest...Grist Halcyon, sleepless pilot of a deadly Battlenaut war machine…or the Freedom Shell, an assistive exoskeleton with a murderous mind of its own.

Don't miss these edgy, exciting, and surprising science fiction tales by a Star Trek and Doctor Who author. It’s the latest collection from award-winning storyteller Robert T. Jeschonek, a master of unique and unexpected science fiction that really packs a punch. This volume includes six scifi e-book stories and novelettes for one low price:

"Star Sex": Can hot space sex save planet Earth? With the world about to end, a desperate team of humans mounts a last-ditch effort to find alien help at the interplanetary Worlds' Fair. Captain Alec Strayhorn and his crew offer up everything Earth has left, only to be rejected by one bizarre alien lifeform after another. But the aliens turn out to have a craving for an unexpected treasure: human sex. The aliens like to watch, and the humans will do anything to save their world...or will they?

"Messiah 2.0": What form will the Second Coming of Christ take? In the world of the far future, Father Clement the warrior priest and Imago the stained glass robot will stop at nothing to find Him...so they can KILL Him. It's the only way to save the King of the World and his Kingdom from the great threat predicted in the Book of Revelations. Will a mysterious prisoner lead the way to their target Messiah, or will she help them realize they're serving an evil cause?

"Lenin of the Stars": Lenin came from outer space! He and his fellow shape-changing aliens bring communism to Earth, hoping to teach galactic harmony to violent humanity. But changing times and surprising turnarounds lead the aliens to fight a secret civil war among their own ranks. When the alien Lenin and his beloved Irina end up on opposite sides, they have no choice but to battle to the death...or start a new revolution that might just sweep the stars.

"The Shrooms of Benares": Benares: planet of fungi on the far frontier. Mushrooms grow taller than trees, fungal creatures roam the landscape...and a terrible new spore turns humans into the walking dead. The one man left alive, a genetically modified super space priest named Father Obregon, sets out to confront this threat and save the woman he loves. But the deadly fungal spore has other plans in store, plans that will push Father Obregon to his limits and test whether his faith can sustain him.

"Beware the Black Battlenaut": All-out war engulfs a distant quadrant of space. Hardcore warriors clash in high tech Battlenaut armor, pitting the ultimate fighting machines in epic struggles on a planetary scale. In the heart of this raging hell, the sleep-deprived Redeye squad fights harder than anyone. Pumped up on drugs, wired to the max, the Redeyes tear through enemy forces like berserk Vikings. But fatigue takes a toll, as the Redeyes start to see things that don't exist. Does the Black Battlenaut truly tower over the blood-soaked war zone? Is it a nightmare brought on by exhaustion, or an omen of infinite devastation?

"Killer Bod": A super-strong exoskeleton mows down innocents, and the man trapped inside it is helpless to stop the slaughter. Can even death end the exoskeleton's rampage and the nightmare of its occupant?
