HEROES! A Diverse Superhero Anthology – Kickstarter Live NOW!

Silence in the Library Publishing is pleased to announce the launch of the Kickstarter for HEROES!, a diverse superhero anthology. Visit the Kickstarter page by clicking on this link.

One of the things that we’re particularly happy about with respect to this anthology is its diversity. Diversity with respect to gender, ethnicity, age, body type, and life experience. The heroes in HEROES! come from all walks of life. Some have superpowers that make them something more, or less, than human, but others are facing a dangerous world with only their wits and willpower to aid them. We have some of the “perfect” comic book heroes, but most of our heroes would be considered flawed by those standards. They’re past their physical prime, or seemingly too young for the task at hand, or not in perfect shape, or slightly bumbling, or have any number of other quirks. In other words, they’re actual people.

Founded in 2011 by a group of authors, Silence in the Library, LLC was established with the goal of creating an environment that allows authors, artists, editors, and other publishing professionals to work collaboratively to showcase their work. Our model keeps the creative decisions, throughout the publishing process, as close to the actual creators (i.e. authors and artists) as possible. Authors are deeply involved in their projects from start to finish. By closely controlling the quality of inputs to the process, we ensure a high level of quality in the final product while allowing space for imagination to flourish.

One of our goals is to prove that there is no “standard” face to a protagonist or an author of speculative fiction. Talent and strength know no race, sex, or other artificial boundary. Our projects, in particular our anthologies, strive to reflect this.

The Athena’s Daughters anthology (and its sister volumes) were conceived, developed, and driven by women. The books have one unifying theme: all of the protagonists are women, and they exhibit a wide range of physical attributes, ages, abilities, ethnicities, and orientations.

For HEROES!, a collection of stories about superheroes, we focused on diversity with respect to gender, ethnicity, age, body type, and life experience.

We consider representation a priority—all readers should be able to find someone like themselves in the books they read. We hope to contribute towards this goal by continuing to offer our customers a diverse selection of authors and characters.
