""'Shroom! "" is a nine-foot tall talking mushroom that mysteriously appears to give Arnold Miracle something called Allpowers, but doesn't tell Arnold what they are or how they work. Soon, Arnold finds himself on a twisted adventure of discovery and nearly ultimate power that transcends time, space and good taste.

The story bounces backward and forward in time from Los Angeles to NYC, from 1930s depression-era Hollywood to the depths of Loch Ness, from vintage '50s Vegas to the Cretaceous Era, from the moon to an infamous Dallas day in November '63, from the Amazon river to the plains of Iceland to, finally, shocking revelation on the shores of Maui.

" "'Shroom! "" features an extraordinary supporting cast that includes Marilyn Monroe, Frank Sinatra, Martin & Lewis, James Bond, Laurel & Hardy, JFK, John Lennon, William Randolph Hearst, Bettie Page, Charlie Chaplin, Lucky Luciano, God and a few surprises. One of them is that Arnold isn't the only one with Allpowers. A villain named Kling also has them and he wants Arnold Miracle way totally dead. It all ends with an epic Allpowers battle between Good and Evil, a beautiful girl in lingerie, some man-eating fish, Charlton Heston in a loincloth and rum smoothies. It's a comedy.
