Description

The heralds of the new age are here...in all their furious glory!

Alpha-Omegas: Humans blessed/cursed with abnormal abilities that manifest in anyone at any time.

A scientist discovers an unexplained force emitting from his hands.

A disturbed woman's personality and sanity split between an actual angel and a demon.

A vigilante copies Alpha-Omega abilities by injecting stolen blood.A socialite wakes up...dead...in the arms of a necrophile.

A parole officer burns with platinum flames and becomes the Sovereign of God.

A detective finds himself unable to protect his city against superpowered criminals.

They didn't ask to be part of the world of Alpha-Omegas. They only wanted to live normal lives. But there's no arguing with biology.

When a celebrity family of Alpha-Omegas is murdered under suspicious circumstances, all six become accidental heroes when they're tasked with uncovering the truth--but what if the truth is being redefined along with what it means to be human?

Meet your (reluctant) champions...

Review quote

"Furies: Thus Spoke starts like a rocket and never lets up. O'Brian Gunn gives us a wildly inventive vision of technology, the future--and what it means to be human. Don't miss it!"

- Nik Korpon, author of The Soul Standard, Stay Gold, and The Rebellion's Last Traitor



"Furies: Thus Spoke strikes familiar chords - people oppressed for their talents and distinctions. But, as you gaze into Gunn's tales of super-human characters, you may discover your own reflection looking back at you."

- R. Alan Brooks, writer and creator of The Burning Metronome



"With nerve, verve, and visceral thrills galore, O'Brian Gunn wields Furies 'Thus Spoke' like a weapon. His target: The superhero genre. The result: A punchy yet lyrical take on how power can both uplift and corrupt, scrawled on a fabulist scale."

- Jason Heller, Hugo Award-winning editor, pop culture contributor to The New Yorker, Rolling Stone, and more, and author of Strange Stars.
