Fallen Superheroes

By Eric Curtis, Adam Mock, Scott Perry

Concept & Photography by Eric Curtis

With Scott Allen Perry “SAP” and Adam C. Mock

Celebrity Appearances by: Andy Dick (Old School, News Radio), Doug Jones (Hellboy, Pan’s Labyrinth), Josh “Ponceman” Perry (Retarded Policeman), Hanna Hall (Forrest Gump)

Fallen Superheroes is a caricatured look at extraordinary everyday people through the visionary lens of celebrity photographer Eric Curtis. Using superheroes (think Batman, Captain America, Iron Man, Spider-Man, Superman) as the allegory, Curtis explores the not-so-glamorous and sometimes dark realities of those who strive to live their dreams against all odds. Curtis once again pairs his trademark imagery with the witty prose of Scott Allen Perry and Adam Mock (Mime Very Own Book), making Fallen Superheroes an eye-popping, gut-busting, esoteric commentary on the unique individuals who color our lives.  Find out more

The Frenzy War

By Gregory Lamberson

Two years have passed since NYPD Captain Tony Mace hunted down and slew Janus Farel, the rogue werewolf who terrorized New York City. Mace paid a price for bucking the brass, and now he pushes paper in the K-9 unit while awaiting retirement, aware that a species of peaceful Wolves lives among us.

The Brotherhood of Torquemada, hell-bent on the Wolves’ extinction, dispatches a team of assassins to wipe out the Wolves residing in NYC. Each assassin has been trained since childhood to fulfill this destiny, and each possesses a revered silver sword, the Blade of Salvation.

When the NYPD and the FBI determine that the Wolves and Torquemadans are engaged in a secret battle, they choose Mace to lead a covert joint task force charged with preventing a citywide panic—at any cost. But Mace’s wife, Cheryl, is a journalist who threatens to uncover the ancient war that has found its way to our shores.

Battle lines are drawn. Loyalties are tested. Bonds are broken. And blood is shed in a war unlike any seen by modern man. Find out more

The Soul Consortium

By Simon West-Bulford

In a future so distant that time is almost without meaning, death is defeated and immortality has been made reality through instantaneous cloning and synaptic transfer. But mankind, frustrated by the futility of timeless existence, chooses extinction. All but one man.

Far removed from the known universe with only one companion, an AI named Qod, Salem Ben watches the cosmos from afar. Wearied by the endlessly repeating cycle of creation and destruction but afraid to pass beyond the veil, he relives the digitally reproduced lives of countless souls archived in the Soul Consortium by means of a neuroimmersive device known as the WOOM. His hope is to discover the answer to the ultimate question: What lies beyond?

But at the birth of the next universe, billions of years before the pattern of life repeats its design, Salem’s quest takes a disturbing turn. Unexplained aberrations appear among the digital souls. To hunt down their source and to continue his search for evidence of life after death, Salem endures four very different lives: Orson Roth, a serial killer in twentieth-century Britain; Dominique Mancini, a spiritual medium from sixteenth-century Lombardy; Plantagenet Soome, a monk sent to the far distant Castor’s World; and Queen Oluvia Wade, the creator of the Soul Consortium.

As the mystery unfolds, Salem is confronted by a malevolent entity, a being of unknown origin woven into the memories of the dead. Prepared to corrupt the laws of physics themselves in order to break free, the entity threatens the future of humanity before it can begin again—and only Salem stands in its way. Find out more

Ollie Tibbles: The Boy Who Became a Train

By Debi Tibbles

“What do you want to be when you grow up?”

“I’m going to be a train.”

I laughed. “You mean you want to be a train driver, right?”

“No.” Ollie put his hands on his hips. “I want to be a train, silly, and I’m going to be someday.”

Debi’s happy life as a stay-at-home mum of three began to change the morning the elementary school secretary called. Her five-year-old had a headache. When he had another and another, each progressively worse, Debi’s fear set in. Something in the doctor’s kind eyes told her, Prepare yourself. This child is in danger.

When medical tests revealed a highly malignant, fast-moving cancer in Ollie’s brain and spine, Debi’s world fell apart. Her fun-loving child was about to endure the most excruciating days of his life, and she was about to encounter the most profound lessons of hers.

Ollie Tibbles: The Boy Who Became a Train is a journey down the track of every parent’s nightmare. It is a story of love, tragic loss, and hope—and the true miracle of a young boy’s wish come true. Find out more

The Holden Age of Hollywood

By Phil Brody

“Hollywood died on me as soon as I got here. Welles said that, not me, but damn if he didn’t nail it, you know?”

Sam Bateman came to Hollywood to settle a score, but amidst the sunny and 75, his plans went astray. Everything changed the day he drank in the intoxicating legend of Meyer Holden, the greatest screenwriter Hollywood has ever known, the one who pulled a Salinger and walked away. Holden now tacks pseudonyms onto his works and buries them in the bottomless sea of spec that is Hollywood’s development process. They’re out there for anyone to find—but at what cost? In his quest, Bateman severs all ties and sinks into a maddening world of bad writing and flawed screenplays. Paranoid and obsessive, the belligerent savant encounters an eccentric cast of characters—each with an agenda—in his search for the one writer in Hollywood who does not want to be found.

Phil Brody’s The Holden Age of Hollywood is at once a detective novel, an unexpected love story, and a provocative exposé of a broken industry. With dark humor and incisive commentary, the novel immerses readers in a neo-noir quest to attain the Hollywood dream, integrity intact. Find out more
