His dream project.
Cut to today, when SINGULARITY: RISE OF THE POSTHUMANS is now a reality!
Besides coming up with the background settings and overall series bible, Jamie has included stories from what has to be an A-List of writing talent, including comic book legend David Michelinie, Jennie Wood, Nancy Hansen, Brant Fowler, Chris Magee, and myself to present an unique view of a potential future.
The Technological Singularity Event left the world’s governments trembling. War ravaged the globe as the last of humanity faced off with the Nanite Army of Fire. Eventually the world was plunged into darkness.
When Earth regained its senses, technology had been reduced to the steam driven level of the 1800’s, despite the fact it is 2075! The world's governments no longer existed, until Dr. Fulbright began rebuilding English society in New Southampton.
Fate seemed to intervene when his lab exploded and carved a giant crater in the center of the city. With Dr. Fulbright believed dead (for if not, where has he been since?), 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 the shadow 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.
“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 stories in SINGULARITY look at the concept of Superheroes through an extremely multifaceted, complex prism and every page is a winner!”
Redefining Superhero prose, SINGULARITY: RISE OF THE POSTHUMANS is now available in print and digital formats.
