About The Book
Dark metahuman fiction featuring stories from Peter (Ex-Heroes) Clines, Weston (Seal Team 666) Ochse, Joe (Dead World) McKinney, Cat Rambo, and many more.
• The only family member to survive the 9/11 attacks.
• A sidekick-turned-construction-worker.
• Teenaged products of an institute for unwanted metahumans.
• A man who can make anyone do anything.
Are they heroes? Are they villains? Sometimes they’re both. Often at the same time. Corrupts Absolutely? collects twenty tales from veteran authors and newcomers, each with a unique perspective on what it might really be like to be superhuman in today’s day and age. In the center of such a roiling mass of uncertainty and excitement lies one important truth: the fight against good or evil is never as important as the fight for or against oneself.

“The editor has done a fine job of assembling a batch of stories filled with attitude and badassery.”
“Lincoln Crisler has taken pains to choose this myriad collection of stories exploring the theme of Metahumans acting out inhumanely and there are quite a few zingers to this collection. This is a collection very much in the vein of Masked by Lou Anders; however, with a tenebrious and twisted bent to it.”
—Fantasy Book Critic
“Corrupts Absolutely? is a great anthology with a concept that never gets old. Each of the stories is incredibly unique, even the ones that deal with a similar power or theme. I had a great time with this and I didn’t dislike a single story. That’s hard to do. Highly Recommended!”
—Only the Best Sci-Fi and Fantasy
“Lincoln Crisler’s compilation is commendable for showing a range of variations on its theme. The contributors address the motif from different aspects and genres. Aficionados of horror will find several tales to whet their genre appetite.”
“… the large majority of the stories establish intriguing conditions, insert equally intriguing characters, add appropriately devastating consequences to either action or inaction, and let the chips — or bodies — fall where they may. Recommended.”
“Really got me to thinking about who really is a ‘Hero’ and a ‘Villain’ and where is the line drawn.”
“… The perfect collection for horror fans with a taste for superhero prose or lovers of hero tales who enjoy a bit of corruption with a horror flavor.”
