2107 AD: A generation ago, Earth and the cislunar colonies banned genetic and cybernetic modifications. But out in the Asteroid Belt, anything goes. Dozens of flourishing space habitats are spawning exotic new societies and strange new varieties of humans. It’s a volatile situation that threatens the peace and stability of the entire solar system.

 

Emerald Blair is a Troubleshooter. Inspired by the classic superhero comics of the twentieth century, she’s joined with other mods to try to police the unruly Asteroid Belt. But her loyalties are tested when she finds herself torn between rival factions of superhumans with very different agendas. Emerald wants to put her special abilities to good use, but what do you do when you can’t tell the heroes from the villains?

 

Only Superhuman is a rollicking hard-sf adventure set in a complex and fascinating future.

Praise for Only Superhuman

Only Superhuman is a heady comic book fix for the discerning SF reader, filled with a sense of wonder and a sense of seriousness.”

—Kevin J. Anderson, New York Times bestselling coauthor of Sisterhood of Dune

 

“Many writers have written about superheroes, but nobody does it like Christopher L. Bennett.”

—Stanley Schmidt, editor of Analog

 

Only Superhuman is, to my knowledge, the first hard science superhero story. And the story is the better for it.”

—Mike W. Barr, author of Camelot 3000

 

“A tour de force that tells a fascinating story with flair, imagination,

and weight.”

—TV Zone on Star Trek: Ex Machina
