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. Approximately 24,000 words, The Battle for Moscow, Idaho & Other Stories collects four of the author's previously published stories and two new ones.
