       Additional Information  
     
      Musashi Battles the Atomic Assassin is a paranormal fantasy adventure, tracing the lives of Takezo Miyamoto, the descendant of the great samurai - Musashi - of ancient Japan; and his best friend, Robert Townsend, a despondent cripple, who seeks enlightenment to gain a happier life. Takezo shares both the soul of Musashi, and a magic weapon. His life leads him to fighting in France in WWII, where he gains a greater understanding of his gifts. Takezo’s trials prepare him for the future. Robert enters the world of Zen Buddhism, which leads him to Japan. When he is given Enlightenment, he becomes a Zen Master/Wizard with magical powers. Tragically, Robert perishes in the atomic explosion in Hiroshima, where he transforms into the Atomic Assassin, and vows vengeance on those responsible for the atomic bombing. Takezo/Musashi must face his friend/the atomic assassin, and his greatest challenge.
