Brave Survivors are Superhumans
by Steven Asovsky

In this collection of sixteen short stories, everyday people become brave survivors as the world as they know it is ripped apart and they endure landscapes destroyed by colonial conquest, faulty technology, climate change, and natural disasters to save others and themselves. The Moon Eclipse Kevin wakes in toxic L.A. smog and witnesses the rippling effect of a bizarre moon eclipse. Without money, food, or water, he must barter with a hotelier for refuge. The Curse of Notre Dame Luc, a Parisian priest, wanders through what was once the City of Love as it finally collapses under the weight of a disparate society and looters destroy historic monuments. The Destruction of Nagasaki Kenji is kidnapped during English invasion and trains as a samurai to free himself and liberate his country. The Criminal and the Lion It’s 9AD and Rome needs an emperor to put an end to corruption, but when Marcus murders his brother for the title and claims his wife, Ornella, only she can stop the tyrant. Surviving Unimagined Dystopias Two high school classmates survive a supernatural disaster in their otherwise boring hometown and flee to the woods before they realize they are being hunted and will need to fight back to survive. Full of fast-paced action, destruction, survival scenarios, and hopeless circumstances, Brave Survivors are Superhumans offers an onslaught of dystopian despair alongside the remarkable resilience of humanity and a glimpse of hope.

Steven Asovsky has a degree in Environmental Studies. He studied at York University, where he took courses in writing climate fiction, which inspired him to write a full-length book about the environment, dystopian worlds, and natural disasters. During his studies, he won environmental awards. He has a vivid imagination and loves to read. His writing tackles the challenges of different eras and settings, but at the core always asks the question: how will we survive the chaos of dystopia? Steven lives in Toronto, Ontario, with his family.
