Black Power: The Superhero Anthology

Continuing the celebration of #BlackExcellence in February, I’m proud to announce that yours truly has been putting in that work and my latest short story, Where Monsters Roam, is featured in the new BLACK POWER: THE SUPERHERO ANTHOLOGY which is available now.



This groundbreaking anthology brings together twenty authors to craft original short superhero stories. Black Power: The Superhero Anthology offers BANG-POW-THOOM action, searing satire, and thoughtful social commentary from a people too often overlooked in mainstream comic books and heroic cinema and television. The superheroes in Black Power: The Superhero Anthology come from all walks of life. Some have superpowers that make them something more, or less, than human, but others face a dangerous world with only their wits and willpower to aid them. Some of the heroes fight against racism, sexism, gang violence and police brutality. Others combat evil on a cosmic scale. ALL of the stories are entertaining and enlightening. Black Heroes Matter. Read Black Power: The Superhero Anthology and find out just how much!

  1. Ooooh! Congratulations!

    I’m gonna pick this one up because I loved The Darker Mask anthology, and I just like seeing PoC doing genre fiction.
