    Summary

    Prohibition Era, Ebott City: A place where humans and monsters have always existed together with a strained and somewhat fragile peace. Most of the city’s denizens simply want to live out their daily lives in a simple cohabitation. Life, however is rarely so easy. There are five large gangs within the city limits, one of the more powerful ones being made up completely of monsters. The balance of power between the four human mafia gangs and the monster mob is delicate, spurring racism and acts of violence from both sides.
    Frisk, the younger sister of infamous detective Chara Dreemurr, receives an anonymous call with clues to the case against her older brother’s sudden mysterious disappearance. Unable to obtain police assistance, she takes up her brother’s mantle and plunges into the seedy underbelly of Ebott City’s criminal organizations. Each new piece of information only brings about more questions as the web of confusion and deceit is spun around her. Who can she trust in this dangerous game? Will she find Chara before it’s too late or will she become hopelessly entangled in the sinister lifestyles of the mob?

    Summary

    The Great War woke a devil in Matt Murdock. This is why he bare knuckle boxes. This is also why he cannot love Claire Temple. But when she runs afoul of some gangsters, Matt must involve himself or risk losing her entirely. Dancing around his feelings was far easier when death, his friends' well-placed meddling, and a corruption scandal weren't involved.

    Summary

    Gotham City was dark and strange in that dimension – no darker and stranger than usual, I suppose, but “dark” specifically in the way an old black and white movie might be, all full of fluttering shadows and grim, staring alleys that looked just like ink stains… “Strange” the way said movie might be if it shuddered and crackled into static or a pale white screen every now and again, with whole bits of dialogue occasionally overwritten by ominous music. Yeah, it was like that, like a dim old low-budget black and white movie on a shoddy projector in a room all full of dust and water stains.

    This Gotham was a Gotham just made for the business of private eye-ing, and the office of Gordon and Todd – Barbara and Jason, if you bought them fancy enough whiskey – was busy doing just that.

    Summary

    Centuries after the destruction of civilization, the small city of Berlose begins to flourish under the control of the Seirath family until the threat of tyranny puts it on the brink of destruction. The Lotuses - genetically enhanced soldiers tasked with enforcing the will of the Seirath family - must act as new dangers coalesce: a woman wielding the power of the storms, stolen technology that could elevate or destroy Berlose with its use, and Old Man Seirath's own madness as he plots to test his youngest heir in a deadly trial of blood. The Lotuses, long loyal to Old Man Seirath and his rule, must decide the fate of Berlose and its people.

    TL;DR Summary: Four jerks do evil stuff for the greater good. Daddy issues abound.

    Summary

    It’s been decades since I got my implants, became as much machine as man, and I’m still amazed at how strong the pull of my reptile brain is. How relentless certain kinds of memories are, when they should be tagged and easily relegated to compartments, to deep storage, like so much useless data.

    A little space noir in which Arthur and Eames encounter each other in dive bars.

    Summary

    Niall, Rob, and Julietta are unassuming couriers, running jobs for the Pokémon Professors in the region. That is, until they're tasked with a special delivery and get caught up in something they don't understand. With a shadowy organization following them, bent on doing whatever it takes to obtain what they carry, they'll have to rely on each other and on the strength of their Pokémon to keep them alive.

    That's harder than it sounds when everyone's got secrets - especially when some of those secrets could tear apart the fragile camaraderie that Niall, Rob, and Julietta have come to depend upon. Turns out the past never stays buried, and the future's never set in stone.
