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 . . .

Life in Hyperion by John Maxwell

The first real novel to come down the hopefully long and winding John Maxwell pipeline. The book’s long narrative takes as back to the year 2009, where things were different. Things are certainly different for two people working at Hyperion, Michigan’s local radio station WHYP, Conrad Harris and his friend Cyrus McLean ‘Cy’ Scott. As the story begins, Conrad is . . .

A Few Good Conversations (Well, At Least 10) by Hans Taylor

Alcohol, empathy, and other poisons.

Most years, I think, are skippable. They suffer from this indescribable mundanity, this relentlessly oscillating day in day out. Those years you could summarise in a sentence or two. To say that 2014 was the best year of my life would be unfair to years 1997 through to 2013, and all the years that followed. But it was certainly the . . .

INNERWORLD

Editor’s First Impression

By Palladian, editor, author of Super

Jul 3, 2015: InnerWorld is an interesting coming-of-age story about a young man, Gavyn, who was involved in a wreck and is recovering from that in some ways, even a year later. Gradually, it begins to seem to him (and the reader) that perhaps what he’s experiencing doesn’t entirely seem to be in the realm of everyday or normal.

The author does a good job of showing us his world, and describing the frustrations and struggles of a young man going through his teenage [more . . .]

FOR RICHES OR MORE

For Reading and More

By Walter, author of The Fifth Defiance

Feb 5, 2017: For Riches or More is a lovingly detailed take on the concept of a Heist movie franchise. A team of good hearted misfits and rogues complete serial capers in an attempt to thwart a dastardly schemer with nefarious aims. It feels a lot like a novelization of a (nonexistent) movie franchise, similar to the Oceans IP.

Sweet:

There is a lot to like in For Riches Or More.
