Just found out that the table of contents for Superhero Universe, the nineteenth iteration of the Tesseracts anthology series, is live. EDGE has made a nifty little promotional video too, so now I’ll know what all of my co-contributors look like when I’m trying to get them to sign my copy of the book.
EDGE also has a Superhero Universe Reading Sampler (PDF) for you to check out.
Not a hoax! Not an imaginary story!
Twenty-four short stories and one poem featuring:
Superheroes! Supervillains! Superpowered antiheroes. Mad scientists. Adventurers into the unknown. Detectives of the dark night. Costumed crimefighters. Steampunk armoured avengers. Brave and bold supergroups. Crusading aliens in a strange land. Secret histories. Pulp action.
Superhero Universe (Tesseracts Nineteen) features all of these permutations of the superhero genre and many others besides!
