It's a Bird! It's a Plane!: A Superhero Antology (Adult)

It's a Bird! It's a Plane! is the light side to the World Domination: A Supervillain Anthology's dark side.  But don't get me wrong these eleven authors have really rocked the superhero world, these supers are different, refreshing and I loved them all but I will only tell you about a few.
Geek Gurl Rising from Chris Pourteau:  How exactly does a superhero get his or her powers?Lightening strike? Bash on the head? From believing you can do something so much you can do it?
The Paladin from Kevin G Summers:  Do all superheroes have superpowers or can they just have a big heart?  Case in point, Jared Weiss superhero or vigilante?
Photo OP from Christopher J Valin: Black Harrier gets his picture taken on a cellphone while in the middle of a operations and now he needs it gone before the owner can post it on social media and his cover is blown.  He manages to play the bumbling boss and delete it off of her phone but doesn't count on her phone being backed up to the cloud.  Now the clock is ticking for the Harrier and his sidekick the Red Raptor to find the cloud service and delete the picture before Harriers cover is blown for good.
The Spotlight from Jeffery Beesler:  How much of being a super hero is actually being a superhero and how much of is it a act and being a actor or actress.  It think the superhero Myna Byrd would be the best one to ask that question too.
These are awesome stories from some of the most talented authors around and if you don't know them, than this is the best way to introduce your self to them as you get a little bit from all eleven of them.  Even though I started with one or two I still find more and more that I have not read and love every time I get another of these awesome anthologies.

World Domination A Supervillain Anthology (ADULT)

This is wonderful selection of short stories by some of the best authors around, when it comes to supers.  These authors can give any of the mainstream comic writers a go, and if you like the villains don't forget the heroes in It's a Bird! It's a Plane!: A Superhero Anthology it is just as good if not better, depending on whether you are a dark side person or a light side person.  Some of my favorites from supervillains are:
Dreamer from Hank Garner:  What can be so bad about giving a 18 year old a journal, I mean really what do they write about anyways?  Their dreams, the real ones.
The Collector from David Bruns:  Mr. Rogers and Mr. Smith, hum interesting names, but Mr. Rogers has a very special talent that Mr. Smith needs, at least for a while.
Now Comes the Bringer of Blight from Ed Gosney:  When Zach's superpowers make him go bad his best friend, Cody, is there for him.  Cody helps to set him straight the only way a normal kid can compared to a super.
Redemption from Ian Garner:  All the supers are gone but two.  Both bad, but one feeling regrets for all the things he did over the years, and wanting to make amends.  The other younger and hoping to become god of earth.  The fight is on.
The Arch-Nemesis from Christopher J Valin: Battlegear, the bad guy, and Eaglestar, the good guy, are duking it out the only way they know how, the dirty way, low blows and such.  But what happens when one doesn't want to play any more and takes his ball and goes home.
As you can see this is a different side to some of the villains, one you might never get to see, a more interesting side one you don't want to miss. 
You also don't want to miss out on a chance to maybe find a new wonderful author out of these twelve top notch writers

Restart (MG)

Chase doesn't remember falling off of the roof, Chase doesn't remember anything!  He gets to reboot his life, now what he does with it is his own to make for better or worse, but what he finds of his old self is a shock to his new self.  When school starts some kids treat him like a god and others like a demon the only problem is Chase finds he doesn't want to be around those that treat him like a god he finds them cruel, he'd rather hang out with the other kids but they are afraid of him for some reason, and he must earn their trust.  Even his own little sister is scared to be around him.  As Chase gets his memories back he must decide which Chase he is going to be the one he wants to be or the one he thinks everybody thinks he is.
This was a very interesting book and I am sure many of us wishes more bullies could suffer amnesia and turn out like Chase but this is not that kind of world but books do let us escape those worlds for a while and that is an awesome thought.  I also love how they spent time with Mr. Solway and brought him out of his depression from his wife dying.  Overall a awesome book, except for the huge mistake in the first place by Chase, Bear and Aaron thinking they would ever get rich selling a Medal of Honor, jokes on them because you can't sell a Medal of Honor, no one would touch that on with a ten foot poll.

Game Alive (YA AUDIO)

Jake has build a cool new Virtual Reality (VR) game and gets his friends to play, but when their friend Kari doesn't come out of Xaloria and the police start asking questions, Jake and Des go back to find out where she is and bring her home.  What they don't count on is the that the non player character have taken over the game and want out and have Kari, trapped until someone helps them out.

This is a really cool gamer, action book. The VR world that Mr. Ellington has laid out is spectacular, and there is fun, danger, and action around every corner no wonder the kids got hooked so easily I did as well listening to them play the VR game thought the talented voice of Darren Marlar as I had the audio version of the book and if you like audios  or want to try one out I suggest this as Mr. Marlar does a heck of a job with the characters in the book and bringing Xaloria alive.  This book was great I hope there are more only because I am a total sucker for gamer books and this one was awesome so I'd would love to see more of Jake and his friends in this world.
