It’s my first superhero fiction roundup of the year! We’ve got a lot of cool books to check out, but before we do, I have a couple superhero novel-related links to share.
One is this article by Percival Constantine entitled “A Genre Hidden from Readers,” which is about how the superhero fiction bestseller list on certain popular website has very few actual superhero books in it. (Superhero fiction being hard to find is one reason I do these roundups.) The article is definitely interesting, and I’d love to hear your thoughts on it.
Second, I want to make sure you know about Superhero-Fiction.com. As the name implies, it’s a website dedicated to superhero novels and has a newsletter you can sign up for to get updated on new releases. There are currently 240 books listed on the website, which is amazing.
Now, onto the new releases. As usual, I haven’t read all of these novels personally, so check out the previews and reviews before purchasing. And happy reading!

Another thing I’ve learned, for better or worse, is that change is always coming. Whether you want it to or not. I may be locked up now but when change finally comes, I plan on being ready to take advantage of it. I’ll to do everything I can to protect the chronoverse and the people in it.
Whatever it takes, no matter who tries to stop me. Continue reading New Superhero Fiction (Jan and Feb 2020)
