The Sound of Wind

Hugo Meyers, lead singer for the Seattle indie-band, Shyshank Puppets, just found out he has super powers. That should be awesome right? Unfortunately they came with visions of a nightmarish future, and the realization that having powers not only doesn't make people any more responsible than they normally would be, sometimes it makes them a great deal worse.Hugo Meyers, a 22-year-old hipster who has long-since shoved all of his ambitions under his bed with a moldy pizza box and a forgotten pile of dirty clothes, knows he is not cutout to save the world, and yet, he’s started getting nightmarish visions of a fast-approaching nuclear apocalypse. Either the Powers That Be hadn’t looked at his resume, or they were stacking the deck in favor of a global catastrophe that his meager musical talents, or the ability to control the wind that had come with the visions like some sort of consolation prize, couldn’t possibly stop.Well, it turns out nobody cares if Hugo is hero material or not. A chance encounter with the (almost) 16-year-old lightning-monster, CJ, leads him to the one man always at the center of the apocalyptic visions; the incredibly charismatic philanthropist and CEO of Gideon Enterprises, Alexander Gideon. Now he’s been dropped face-first into a cold war between people with superpowers that has been going on behind the scenes for generations. With the help of, thankfully, more competent allies, Hugo must untangle years of lies and betrayal before it’s too late for everyone. But is it all worth it, when each sacrifice Hugo makes trying to save the world brings him one step closer to becoming the type of detached, calculating monster that would want to destroy it?

Everything that falls, quietly or crashing, no matter how far, or how fast…lands. The pieces are in place. The War is coming.Strange Fruit: Prologue is five shorts that set the stage for a story about fallen angels, malicious demons, and the humans stuck in the middle.The Fates know the world is more than what it seems; the supernatural: vampires, witches, werewolves, and the things that lurk in the dark, have for centuries woven themselves into the fabric of all that is Normal. But that is changing. Three teenagers, who can see the future, know something is coming, that a power is gathering in their quiet city of Starfield, and not even they can predict what that means.When Ephraim, a young man who is violently protective of his twin brother, and just a little bit crazy, finds an angel missing a wing collapsed in an alleyway, his act of kindness sets off a chain of events that endangers everything he loves, and may bring about the Apocalypse.
