AN ANCIENT TRIGGER GENE buried deep in humankind's DNA is sporadically activating, evolving some humans into something superhuman. Influenced by comic-book culture, many of these 'chimerics,' as they have been dubbed, have taken on costumes and adopted codenames. Organizations have even arose to either train, exploit, or police chimerics, and the world is at odds about their very existence.
In this open-ended series, Ragnarok gathers authors to write superhuman fiction in a shared universe. It begins here with book #1, Emergence, shipping in fall 2016. Look for book #2, Chimeric, featuring stories by Dan Wells, Rob Duperre, Steve Diamond, and more, in 2017.
Emergence collects nine tales, each with a unique perspective on what it might be like to be superhuman in the modern age.
"From the Barrel of a Gun" by Jeff C. Carter
"Whiplash" by Tim Marquitz
"Never Go Half Supervillain" by C.T. Phipps

"Perennial" by Edward M. Erdelac
"The Other" by Rob J. Hayes
"Avenger" by G.N. Braun
"Bring It On, Hero" by J.M. Martin

In the Humanity 2.0 cosmology, the stories are set in a shared universe. Characters cross over, events have impact, establishments are consistent. It's an open-ended series and the stories will continue to evolve.
Emergence features a cover by Patrick Brown and interior artwork by Oksana Dmitrienko.
