A collection of six of Edward W. Robertson's sci-fi and horror stories:

In "Death Among the Grasseaters," a biologist is sent to a western backwater to track down the source of a new plague.

"The Inspiration of Philocrates," a steampunk-hued work of alternative history, follows a motley team of Greek soldiers and philosophers on a mission to kidnap a key scientist from the rival Egyptians.

And in "The Battle for Moscow, Idaho," a small crew of American guerrillas tries to hold their town together against an army of alien-aided rebels.

Other stories include "The Mayor of Mars," the flash story "There's No Home for You Here," and "The Magic Taco Wagon," a work of microfiction. At 24,000 words, The Battle for Moscow, Idaho & Other Stories collects four of the author's previously published stories and two new ones.

I really enjoyed all the Reapers books and the Cutting Room so I thought I would give this a try. This should of been a free book. These stories are really only the beginnings of stories which really don't go anywhere. If there is some kind of higher plain of thinking for these shorts, I didn't get it. These stories are more like notes which didn't get used or will be used later. Save your money on this one.
