Mortal Gods: “HVT” is a short story I’m writing. It will fall under the Mortal Gods: NATSEC umbrella of stories I’ve previously mentioned. I plan to publish it in full and for free here and, likely, at Liberty Island as well.
Enjoy the cover art for now. I’ll work on finishing the story as soon as possible.

Superhumans might seem like pure fantasy but they are not. The armed forces of the world are actively working on creating them.
Media have focused attention on how the U.S. Department of Defense is attempting to create a so-called Iron Man suit. But there is more going on than just this. There are already talks about military forces (not necessarily American ones) manipulating DNA and genetic structures to create enhanced humans or superhumans. I wrote about this in the summer of last year.
So what’s the latest that is happening with research and development of superhuman technologies and capabilities? I contacted someone who is interested in future trends and asked him for his thoughts on it.

Prose stories do not require artwork. However, prose stories struggle to find an audience without it. And what good is a story if no one is reading it? So here is the latest on the forthcoming artwork for the forthcoming tales from Liberate Liberty—here is what it will be as of now and here is what it can be if enough people support the stories.
I commissioned original artwork for both Mortal Gods: Ignition and Winning through Losing. The total of four separate commissions cost a significant amount of money. But it was worth it for those books. I’d like to commission more artwork for forthcoming stories (more of which I will post about this week—including how the first story will begin its serial publication this week or the next) but I need to make sure there is the demand for it.
So as of right now I’m creating the artwork for my latest work. I’m teasing excerpts of some of it above and in the images below. Some of what you see now might be different in its final form. And some of …
Another story I am working on completing is the first story for a potential young adult series called, The Stought Brothers. I will publish the story in its entirety as a serialized story and for free at BarbWire.
I will judge how people respond to it and if it does well enough I may be able to proceed with the series, publishing the next book for sale as an eBook.
The logo you see to the right is the working logo for The Stought Brothers. If it proceeds as a series, then there probably would be an entirely new design along with cover art for the book.
Here is the general outline for The Stought Brothers.
Two brothers, 16- and 18-years old (a sophomore and a senior in high school), travel the world with their parents. Their father is a highly skilled doctor specializing in brain surgery, and he travels the world under the sponsorship of his church so he can provide life-saving operations across the globe. He takes his family with him wherever he travels.
During their travels, the bro…
