Product Description

Product Description

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 in the darkest corner of deep space among soulless aliens who have no capacity for mercy. Don't miss this exciting tale by award-winning storyteller Robert T. Jeschonek, a master of unique and unexpected science fiction that really packs a punch.


Reviews

"…Robert Jeschonek is a towering talent..." – Mike Resnick, Hugo and Nebula Award-winning author

"Jeschonek´s stories are delightfully insane, a pleasure to read…" – Fabio Fernandes, Fantasy Book Critic

"Robert Jeschonek is the literary love child of Tim Burton and Neil Gaiman—his fiction is cutting edge, original, and pulsing with dark and fantastical life. His stories suck me in and refuse to let me go until the last page…" – Adrian Phoenix, critically acclaimed author of The Maker's Song series and Black Dust Mambo
