"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.
"Lenin of the Stars": Vladimir Lenin and his fellow shape-changing aliens bring communism to Earth, hoping to teach galactic harmony to violent humanity. But when Lenin and his beloved Irina end up on opposite sides of a civil war among their own ranks, they have no choice but to battle to the death.
"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.
"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. But fatigue takes a toll, as the Redeyes start to see things that don't exist. Is the Black Battlenaut 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?
