Need something to read this weekend? Want that something to have dirigibles, clockwork, and lady inventors? Would you prefer if it was FREE? Then you’re in the right place. Here are four awesome steampunk short stories you can read right now.
by Cat Rambo
This is one of the greatest examples of an unsympathetic narrator that I’ve ever come across. Really, though, the story isn’t about him but his fiancé. I would gladly read an entire series starring her, but this story is complete and lovely. Try it if you like a little magic in your steampunk, or if you enjoy stories about brilliant ladies dumping dudes who aren’t good enough for them.

The last of this summer’s superhero blockbusters may have already hit theaters, but there are plenty more superhero novels ready to hit your tablet, phone, or e-reader. Here are some of coolest titles I came across in July. As usual, I haven’t read all of these books personally, so check out the samples and reviews before downloading. And happy reading!
Sorceress Super Hero
by Darius Brasher
The mess all started when I punched a 400-year-old fairy reality TV star in the throat.
Things got really weird from there.
Before I could blink, I was fighting wererats, getting kidnapped by superheroes, stealing a cape inhabited by the ghost of a magical genius, and trying to save the world alongside a 2,000-year-old immortal who wields a piece of Noah’s Ark. All while struggling to not get evicted or fired from my job.
That was just Monday. Tuesday is shaping up to be busier. Continue reading New Superhero Fiction (July 2018)
We’re less than two months away from the release date of Kill Them All! I like to call this novel a “supervillain revenge thriller,” so expect lots of superpowered action and a snarky first-person POV. I love writing Val, a glamorous, middle-aged, semi-retired supervillain who just wants to protect her family. Though loving her doesn’t stop me from putting her through hell in this book. 😉
A big thank you to everyone who’s been following The White Knight and Black Valentine Series from the beginning, and a warm welcome to new readers who just discovered the books recently! I hope this preview gets you hyped, and that you enjoy the whole book when it hits the shelves. Continue reading Read the first chapter of Kill Them All
I love a good anthology. Getting a dozen stories in one collection, discovering new authors, diving into new worlds—what’s not to like? Fans of superhero fiction are particularly lucky, because there are a lot of good superhero anthologies out there. In honor of the release of Heroes and Villains, the new boxed set that contains Hero Status along with nine other novels, I want to spotlight four of my favorite anthologies and four on my to-read list.
Back in print after a decade, expanded with new original material, this is the first volume of George R. R. Martin’s Wild cards shared-world series. Continue reading 8 Great Superhero Anthologies
This is a little late due to my vacation, but here are some of last month’s new superhero books. I’ve got short reads if you’re pressed for time, and the latest installments in multi-book series if you want something long and epic. As usual, I haven’t read all of these personally, so please check out the samples and reviews before buying. And if you’ve read any of these, let me know what you think in the comments!

What do you do when a conspiracy suppresses super powers?
Mathilda Brandt fights to keep her fellow Empowered friends and the Imbued refugees from Sanctuary alive and safe. Environmental disasters are ravaging the world. Her former master, the secretive government agency known as Support, hunts her and the other rogue Empowered and Imbued across the world, seeking to capture or kill them. Only the strange Dark-Net, an extra-dimensional road, keeps Mat and her friends free.
Mat is also desperate to find her mother, who until a few months ago Mat thought was dead. Her mother’s fate is somehow intertwined with the people hunting her, and Mat wants to learn how. Continue reading New Superhero Fiction (June 2018)
No new book stuff this week, because I spent the Fourth of July holiday in the Great Smoky Mountains. My phone had terrible service there, and the hotel WiFi was super slow, so I was forced to take a break from the internet.
It was nice. 🙂
I went hiking to cascades and waterfalls… Continue reading Vacation in the Mountains
Like reading about superheroes? Well, how about ten superheroes for the price of one?
I’m excited to announce that Hero Status is part of Continue reading Announcing the Heroes & Villains Boxed Set
