The Powers That Be: A Superhero Collection

Powers That Be

They walk among us. They are our friends and family, our neighbors… even our enemies. Individuals with extraordinary abilities.

Some view their powers as a blessing. Others, a curse.

From the marvelous to the mundane, each of the charcters in this anthology must come to grips with the burden that has been placed upon them. Some choose to do good for others; some retreat into more pedestrian pursuits, only to discover they can run from everything but themselves. Some find solace in simple acts; others glory in the grandeur of their exploits. Some want nothing more than to disappear permanently. Yet through it all, hope and humanity prevail in unexpected ways.

Featuring nine super stories by ten amazing authors, this is truly an anthology of the extraordinary.

Proceeds from the sale of this book will benefit the Sickle Cell Clinic at Riley Hospital for Children at IU Health. Sickle Cell Disease can cause chronic, lifelong pain. Riley Hospital for Children provides a holistic approach to care for patients affected by Sickle Cell Disease, and also helps family members cope with the impact of the diagnosis.

 The Alien Chronicles

AlienCover

Intelligent life on other planets: it’s the brass ring of space exploration. Do extra-terrestrial species exist? Will we ever make contact? Perhaps, have we made contact already?

In the latest addition to the Future Chronicles series of sci-fi anthologies, the answer to all of these question is a resounding yes. From first contact to last stand, these original short stories range from quiet tales of personal connection to adrenaline-infused inter-species space conflicts. Each tale promises to present you with a different look at what intelligent alien life might be like — and how we Earthlings might respond to it.

The Alien Chronicles features stories by bestselling authors Hugh Howey (WOOL), B. V. Larson (the Starforce series), and Jennifer Foehner Wells (Fluency), plus twelve more of today’s top authors in science fiction.

SILO SUBMERGED SERIES

Grab all three books in one volume!

Silo Submerged

In the depths of the silo, water is pouring in at an unstoppable rate. Ace, along with a team of Divers, are doing the best they can to avert this disaster, but it may not be enough.

When Ace proposes another, more drastic way of saving the silo’s population, he is banished for his sin of toxic words. What happens next is unprecedented and will shake the foundations of a society expressly designed to be infallible.

Silo Submerged is a 75,000 word novel that takes the reader on a new journey through the vivid world Hugh Howey created with his Silo Saga (WOOL, SHIFT, and DUST). This series was published with the full support of Mr. Howey.

WOOL Gathering: Stories From the Silo

WOOL Gathering

Long after the dust has settled and the survivors of the Silo Saga have gone to seed, Hugh Howey’s bestselling WOOL trilogy continues to captivate readers worldwide. The power of Hugh’s story is underscored all the more by the number of authors who have embraced the invitation to tell their own stories in his ever-expanding world.

The first of its kind, this gathering brings together nine of the Silo Saga’s most acclaimed authors to further expand upon the groundbreaking world first laid forth in WOOL, SHIFT, and DUST. From the power struggles of the Up Top to the darkest depths of the mines and everything in between, this anthology promises something for everyone bold enough to venture another journey deep below the surface of the best and worst humanity has to offer.

(Proceeds from the sale of this anthology benefit National Novel Writing Month / NaNoWriMo. My contribution is a short story called Lost Water, which is an expansion of Silo Submerged.)

How about an all original?

The Robot Chronicles

81ZN7QsWpZL._SL1500_

Robots. Androids. Artificial Intelligence. Scientists predict that the “singularity” — the moment when mankind designs the first greater-than-human intelligence — is nearly within our grasp. Believe it or not, truly sentient machines may be a reality within as little as 20 years.

Will these “post-human” intelligences be our friends? Our servants? Our rivals? What will we learn from them? What will they learn from us? Will we allow them to lead their own lives? Will they have basic human rights? Will we?

Science and society will be forced to address these questions sooner than you think. But science fiction is addressing these questions today. In THE ROBOT CHRONICLES, thirteen of today’s top sci-fi writers explore the approaching collision of humanity and technology.

My story “Empathy for Andrew” – The Center for Robotic Research takes quality assurance very seriously. Their newest model, the Empathy 5, may finally have achieved true artificial intelligence—the first machine worthy of being called “alive.” But before these AI units can be certified for mass production, they must undergo intense psychological and emotional trials. After all, when you build a machine, you must try and test it to its very limits. Even to its breaking point.

Walk the Fire Anthology

71bH5Yt7dhL._SL1000_

The flames: all who step through may stride between worlds–but only a precious few, the Ferrymen, can guide you true.

From the middle ages through today, powers vie for control of the Flames. In the deep future, mankind walks upon new worlds and fleets challenge the black between galaxies–all thanks to the Ferrymen.

May the Ferrymen take you!

A shared world anthology featuring tales from WJ Davies, Mur Lafferty, Paul Levinson, Christopher Morse, Steve Umstead, Jared Axelrod, Matthew Iden, JRD Skinner, Harry Connolly and music by John Anealio.
