As it’s Superhero Week, we’ve got five free clips from superhero tales on the site. The first clip is Velveteen vs The Junior Super-Patriots by Seanan McGuire. Velma Martinez finds herself going up against the Marketing Department and The Junior Super Patriots.
Monster Hunter Nemesis
All Those Explosions Were Someone Else’s Fault
Sparks are superheroes who have to step up and deal with the Darklings. In the book, Kim Lam is a regular college student until suddenly dropped into the battle of light versus dark.
Margaret Atwood’s Angel Catbird is the story of the young genetic engineer Strig Felledus who is mutated into a cross of man, cat and owl. The result? A pulp-inspired adventure and a homage to the golden age of comic books.
Futuristic Violence and Fancy Suits
Superheros battle against super-powered thugs and the whole drama is policed by a well-dressed team called The Men in Fancy Suits. David Wong’s book follows Zoey, who thinks this whole mess is very stupid until a particularly crazy supervillain kidnaps her.
