A Hero’s Death

The Hero died twenty years ago trying to save a family in a building collapse, but the implications of her death still linger, especially for Laura, a young reporter who’s doing a story on the anniversary of the Hero’s death.

hero's death page 2Laura has managed to track down an old woman named Doris Weller, an eye witness to what happened. But Doris has no interest in remembering that day, let alone talking about it. As Laura coaxes the story out of her, we get to see what actually happened to the Hero, and the devastating effect her death had on Doris and the city.

A Hero’s Death is as much character study as it is a very traditional superhero tale. There’s action, danger and spandex, but the script also explores what happens when a hero fails. Our book doesn’t have a message, but it does have a feel good ending, and we hope when you read the last page and close the book that you’ll have a new perspective on caped heroes.

Line of Defense

By the end of the 30th century humanity had conquered space travel and spread into the galaxy. It was a dangerous place. In 2993, Galactic Command was formed by the Terrans, Empirians and Vesperons, and charged with maintaining lawfulness amongst the member nations’ territories. But what GALCOM calls order, the Insurgents call oppression. In a surprise strike, the Insurgents overran the planet Lyrius and its decommissioned GALCOM bases. The planets proximity to other GALCOM systems made it an ideal target for the Insurgents to use as a base of operations in their fight against the Terran Military. The Insurgents’ attack caught the GALCOM generals unprepared, but more troubling than the show of force were intelligence reports on a new Insurgent super weapon being tested on Lyrius. It is now 3000AD. The galaxy braces for war and Lyrius has become the first line of defense.
