Why am I doing this?

Since I first conceived of the SVR series back in 2019, it has grown into a sprawling universe with a lot of room to “play.” It has also developed a devoted following of readers, many of whom are talented authors and creative storytellers in their own right.

After fielding several comments from people who would like to write in the universe or who are interested in also getting into Superhero Fiction but don’t know where to start, I thought, “Hey, why not do this thing.”

Admittedly this is a little bit like authorized Fan Fiction. That said, I want the authors to be paid for their work, and I’m looking for five or six amazing stories: quality over quantity.

I also will write a brand new SVR story to include in this collection, so there WILL be an H.L. Burke original included in this anthology. 


So, are you ready to save the day with me?

Suit up, sables!

-Heidi/H.L. Burke
