Sins Of The Fathers: A Super Collection Of Superhero Stories

It is a pleasure to report that my short novel A Boy Named Evil, Ultrahumans has been collected into the Sins Of The Fathers Bundle.

 

Time passes. Teenage sidekicks grow up. Heroes and villains settle down and start families.

The bundle is themed around the next generation of kids taking over the family superhero/villain business. Stories about people in masks and how they interact with the youngsters coming along, rather than just inter-generational family drama. Superheroes make everything crazier.

Does the hero retire gracefully and let the teen sidekick take over the name and costume? Did the children of a supervillain join the family business, or become heroes and work to thwart their own parental units?

What happens, when ties of family intersect and tangle with ties of crime-fighting?

Only this time, after being buried, his friend Newt–a non-binary skeleton–rose from the dead with a problem. A former lover and necromancer had stolen Newt’s heart from his grave.

Jamal agrees to retrieve the heart. And runs into his own brand of trouble. The kind that could end him.
