Kickstart the Week 55: New fiction by Michael Jan Friedman

Michael Jan Friedman is a name known to many comic book and Star Trek fans. With numerous novels in that franchise and writing credits on Justice League and a personal favorite of mine, Darkstars, he's got a whole heck of a lot of great credentials.

But he also publishes a lot of great stuff of his own. One, I Am the Salamander, can even be characterized as super powered fiction. That book was Friedman's very first Kickstarted project, but three years later he is back with a new book and new super powered fiction.


Cabal and Other Irresponsible Invocations of The Muse is his new book at Kickstarter now. While it features several stories from various genres, the lead tale "Cabal" is pure super powered fiction, focusing on a group teaming to take down a superhero. But in this case, they do so for noble reasons, even if they aren't always right in those intentions.

This one looks like another great one by Mister Friedman, so head over to Kickstarter and back it!

Kickstart the Week 54: The Adventures of Auroraman

A.P. Fuchs is one of those guys that has been toiling in the super powered fiction field for quite some time with both novels and comics revolving around his character Axiom-Man. Now he's teaming up with fellow Canadian Jeff Burton to help bring the heroic Auroraman to life. Auroraman is the first Canadian hero aimed at the midlands of the country, hailing from Saskatchewan. With a magic staff, he becomes the Super Power of the Prairies. He makes his debut in a new comic through Kickstarter, but his adventures also continue in a prose novel crossover with Axiom-Man. It's a truly inventive way to bring this new character to life.
