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 . . .

Something along the lines of Robby the Robot meets Star Trek. Just goes to show that you should never judge a book by its cover nor a web fiction site by its home page.

UNSONG

Solid, remarkable but not conventionally impressive

By Pavel Sadovnikov, member

Feb 21, 2017: Huh? How come that Unsong is currently third on topwebfiction but has only two reviews?

Really creative concept of magic system. Interesting and verbose alternative history; if you like this stuff, definitely must read. Insight-ish, but if you want insights, you’d better check up Scott’s Meditations on Moloch. Lots and lots of amusive Bible puns, but, again, if you want puns check up his Study of Anglophysics first to know what to expect. Main protagonists are somewhat pale; there’re a few [more . . .]
