And Other Stories of the Bizarre
by Robert W. Bly


Classic science fiction is back, in the hands of masterful writer Robert W . Bly. Bly’s new short story collection Freak Show of the Gods and Other Stories of the Bizarre takes readers on a mind-expanding trip into the unknown in the spirit of Ray Bradbury and The Twilight Zone.

The stories in Freak Show of the Gods combine bold imagination and big ideas with personal-scale stories of human beings in their most emotional moments, entertainingly brought to life by a master storyteller.

Freak Show of the Gods presents thought-provoking stories that explore the human condition through the lens of the fantastic with stunning science fiction ideas and surprising ironic O. Henry twists.

Freak Show of the Gods presents 34 encounters with the bizarre that uncover unsettling strangeness in the midst of everyday life, including:


  • "Freak Show of the Gods”: When the Gods of Olympus show up at a county fair in New Jersey, an
    ordinary single dad is forced to reveal his most dangerous secret.
  • “Van Helsing’s Last Stand”: The vampire hunter and his great enemy have one last battle … over book
    royalties, movie rights and merchandising.
  • “Early Retirement”: An aging superhero is denied Social Security benefits … with tragic results.
  • “Tax Time”: A genius inventor’s plan to build a time machine can be stopped by only one force in the
    universe … an IRS audit.
  • “The Emancipation of Abraham Lincoln XL-3000”: The Abraham Lincoln automaton at Disneyworld
    begs his creators to set him free.


And 28 more strange, offbeat and bizarre tales.
