Gunning for the Buddha

UnWrecked Press

If you meet the Buddha on the road, kill him.

A young woman struggling with drug addiction catches aliens on her digital camera. A man with elemental powers struggles with morality and carrying out the orders of his bosses. The dead leave their graves and take up... surfing?

Gunning for the Buddha collects fifteen stories that range from near-future science fiction to historical dark fantasy and contemporary horror, touching on a range of genres in the process.

These wide-ranging stories were previously published in magazines such as Asimov's, Strange Horizons, The Best of All Flesh, and Writers of the Future. Enjoy the voyages, and watch out for false Buddhas on the road!

“Don’t be looking for bold starship captains or warrior maidens wielding magic swords in Gunning for the Buddha. Michael Jasper serves up something refreshingly different: a heady brew of ordinary folks making tough decisions at the far edges of reality. Spend some time with these stories and you’re bound to bump into people you know who find themselves in places you’ve only dreamed about.”
— Hugo-winning author James Patrick Kelly

“Mike Jasper brings the common touch to the most uncommon situations. Welcome to his world.”
— Nebula-winning author John Kessel
