Superhero prose anthology to debut from PRO SE PRODUCTIONS
from the official press release . . . . . . . . A cutting edge publisher, Pro Se Productions announces the release of an anthology that redefines Superhero prose. Featuring top authors in Genre Fiction and New Pulp today, including noted comic writer David Michelinie SINGULARITY: RISE OF THE POSTHUMANS is now available in print and digital formats. “It’s always fantastic,” says Tommy Hancock, Editor in Chief of Pro Se Productions, “when a book comes along that has every likelihood of being a genre changer. SINGULARITY: RISE OF THE POSTHUMANS is such an anthology. Taking the core concepts at the heart of tales of Superheroes and the evil they face and blending them in with aspects of Cyberpunk, Noir, and more, the tales in SINGULARITY look at the concept of Superheroes through an extremely multifaceted, complex prism and every page is a winner.” The Technological Singularity Event left the world’s governments trembling. War ravaged the land as humans faced off with the Nanite Army of Fire. Eventually the world was plunged into darkness. When the world regained its senses technology had been reduced to the level of the 1800’s. The world governments no longer existed, until one Dr. Fulbright began rebuilding English society in New Southampton. Fate seemed to intervene when Dr. Fulbright’s lab exploded and carved a giant crater in the center of the city. With Dr. Fulbright dead, the struggling city was left without guidance or authority. Authority was regained when brutal Queen Anne anointed herself the new city monarch. Anne quickly established a brutal regime bathed in blood and violence. In light of death and oppression, the people of New Southampton seek saviors. In the darkness, some have heard the call for Revolution. Beings that have crawled out of the time of the Singularity to give the people hope. Many call these harbingers of salvation the Posthumans. The Posthumans have risen from the ashes. SINGULARITY: RISE OF THE POSTHUMANS. From Pro Se Productions.
