Superpow time! What is it? Check this out…

Yeah, so, The Red Penny Papers is back with a bang, I mean to say. Our first ever anthology–eBook and print–is on its way October 27, and it’s all about superpowers. What better pulp fodder was ever created? None. None better, that’s what.

Superpow contains eleven new superpowered stories: novellas, shorts, and even our very first poetry (which I’m in love with, ngl). It’s been a labor of love for me and definitely for the authors, who are all fabulous RPP alums of note.  The first cover hero is Corinne Duyvis’s Pantheress, from “The Masks of Sigma City”–a gorgeous imagining of a rogue hero negotiating her way through a tense mystery, and her own identity, with the help and hindrance of some other masks. Behind her is William Vitka’s bruiser, Rubin, who was working underground when the meteor hit and gave everyone in his world powers. Nothing’s ever been handed to him easy, and it’s even worse now he’s fresh out of prison–but he’s willing to fight for it. Good thing, cuz he’ll have to.

These are just two of the amazing heroes, villains, and strange worlds in Superpow. A girl with galaxies in her eyes, superspeed poetry, a useless translator, a washed up villain, otherworldly siblings, a painter with a talent well beyond the canvas, and… well, Leather Boy. I’ll let that one be a surprise. He’s fabulous, though, I promise.

For more info and the stunning table of contents, check out the post over here at RPP, and its perma-page, which will be updated regularly as new info becomes available.

    I like that cover! And although I’m not much into superheroes I find quite interesting how “Superpow” sounds, I’ll give it a try when it’s out. :)
