My short novel Invasion is now available. Again.
Let me explain. Invasion first appeared in Dreams of Flying, but the way it ended I realized that the story had to go on. Invasion is now the first of a series that I hope to complete in the next few years. (Dreams of Flying, then, will be republished with some new material to take Invasion's place later on.)
Here's the description:
The future of the Identity Crisis Universe hangs in the balance.
A swarm of biomechanical monsters attack the Volans Space Station during a test of its artificial gravity system. Two of the station’s engineers, however, are more than just astronauts.
The Earth’s Apex superheroes—a physicist turned nuclear colossus, a hyper-intelligent silverback gorilla, and an otherworldly gladiator —are all that stand between an alien beachhead and the billions of innocent lives below. Adam Smasher, Symian, and Ballista must fight off an insectoid infestation with one foot in the airlock, and the other kicking inorganic butt back into space.
But repelling the first wave may not be enough. In order to safeguard the Earth, the trio volunteer to leave this world behind and venture into deep space, where the void—and the mission—may be darker and colder than they ever expected.
Fifteen years after the events of Hungry Gods, the superhero lineup is very different, and about to change even more. J. D. Brink’s mature brand of spandex adventure comes to a new series for grownup fanboys and fangirls of every timeline.
