Last Week in Superhero Fiction (9/7/17)

Superhero Fiction News Graphic

Author Jenn Gott wrote a list of recommended superhero novels that inspired her while she was writing The Private Life of Jane Maxwell. The titles are definitely worth checking out—as is her debut superhero novel.

The Halloween-themed anthology Witch or Treat has a short story by Joynell Schultz, The Supernatural Life of a Superhero Wife, which ties in to the world of her upcoming novel, The Secret Lives of Superhero Wives. You can grab another of her short stories, The Stellar Life of a Superhero Wife, for free by signing up for the author’s mailing list on Instafreebie.

Intuitive Writing Guide recently posted an article titled Genre 101: Superhero, summarizing superhero fiction as a genre. Do you agree with the classification and list of common tropes?

Ravenclaw Book Geek wrote a review of Vicious by V.E. Schwab, which isn’t a new release but one of those acclaimed superhero novels that I can’t believe I haven’t read yet.

Blots of Ink & Words has an interview with April Daniels, author of Dreadnought and Sovereign. There’s also a giveaway that you have two more days to enter to win copies of the books.

Big congratulations to Martin Von Cannon, who has been posting superhero short stories to his website for two years as of yesterday. Here’s to another two years and beyond!

Any news I missed? What superhero fiction are you currently reading? Let me know in the comments!

Kristen Brand

If Kristen Brand could have any superpower, she'd want telekinesis so she wouldn't have to move from her computer to pour a new cup of tea. She spends far too much time on the internet, and when she's not writing, she's usually reading novels or comic books. Icon by @heckosart.
