I wrote the short stories to mark SuperHuman Times' tenth anniversary in 2016. If you’re reading them after listening to the original podcasts, know that these are not blow-by-blow adaptations of the original script, and I did not adapt all of the episodes. I’ve taken liberties and expanded on some things, condensed or eliminated others.

I've also tossed in stories based on some unproduced scripts and two original Times tales that I wrote just for fun.

Please note that each story bears a faint watermark. While you’re free to share the PDFs with others (and if you think they’re good enough to do so, thanks), the watermarks are intended to discourage people from — don’t laugh too hard — selling them. They may be collected in print someday and if anyone’s gonna make a buck off of this waste of time, it’s gonna be me.

One more thing: If you’ve read  Heroic Park: A SuperHuman Times Novel, you’re in for a treat (I hope). Several of the incidents in these stories are referred to in the histories of the characters in the book. Now you can fill in some blanks.

These were as much fun to write in prose as they were to write as scripts. And after more than 10 years, I still enjoy the company of these people in this universe. I hope you'll enjoy them, too.
