"Uncanny" by Soren Holst

No Caption Provided

Prologue

Superheroes. Metahumans. Mutants. Extranormals. New Gods. The future. Whatever you might call them, metahumans have been part of every facet of our daily lives since the dawn of mankind, whether we've known it or not. Be they colorful or shadowy, benevolent or sinister, famous or secret, extranormal entities have irrevocably shaped human history, and will continue to do so. In an effort to record and understand them, I found it prudent to author the very novel you're reading right now - be it a physical copy or a digital one - in order to, as accurately as possible, convey both the majesty and terror which accompanies these colorful characters.

The world is strange.

Let's make some sense of it.

About the Author

Dr. Soren Holst is a Danish author who attended Oxford University in 1992. He earned a Ph.D in Superhuman Studies in the following year, and is now considered one of the foremost experts on the metahuman condition. He currently resides in Switzerland with his wife and two dogs. When he isn't touring the world or participating in interviews, Soren is investing in gold and financing the construction of a fully stocked bomb shelter for himself and his family. He suggests all his readers do the same.

And of course, none of that is true. Soren never went to Oxford, nor does he possess a Ph.D, a wife, or two dogs.

His real name is von Lichter.

@haven_oshea: It'll pretty much just be links to major events and summaries of them in relation to the topics. Nothing too big, the page numbers aren't accurate ;)
