Anathema by Chrysalis

Those comic books were lying about superpowers.

In the year 2010, the Pulse changed our world irrevocably. It quickly became clear that superhero comics and movies had little impact on this new reality. Secret identities turned out to be illusions for most. The defining lines between hero and villain were blurry at best, and the prime duty of the United Nation’s powered Covenant was to hunt . . .

BLACK BLOSSOM

The Menace from Earth

By Fiona Gregory, editor

Jan 5, 2013: This is a brilliant, unusual work; a triumph of world building. In some ways it shadows how the feudal Japanese culture reacted to their first encounters with Europeans during the Edo period (although the Al-Naidoori seem more gentle!). Without a doubt, it is exquisite writing. The only problem I had with it was I felt some interesting plot elements (including those centred around the black blossom of the title) were glossed over or left unexplained, in favour of focusing on the relationship of the two protagonists. Or perhaps I [more . . .]

A BAD IDEA

Popcorn! Gitcher popcorn here!

By Tartra, author of The Other Kind of Roommate

Jul 24, 2016: The tl;dr is that A Bad Idea is a fun, snappy ride. It’s a great way to pass some time without all the ‘commitment’ of other serials, but unlike other serials, it never goes so far to earn that commitment. This is a casual read for the most casual reader; don’t go in thinking Grapes of Wrath of when we’re getting Saturday Morning Funnies.
