Our resident writer, Charles Eskew, jumped in on the opportunity to challenge characters we don't see as often in the podcast. A published and award winning author that definitely doesn't take 10 years to write these stories, is super excited to share his works with you! The short stories are another way for you to learn more about the homebrew world of Reverie. Short stories will be offered through our future patreon as a tier reward.

Tales of the Astonishing Black Spark
Trapped in a dead-end job in his Ohio hometown, watching the girl of his dreams move on to a glamorous new life in a big city—Donald McDougal’s aimlessness has held him back for a long time. When a lightning strike grants him superhuman powers, he jumps at his chance to finally be somebody. But the new abilities and the pursuit of superheroic fame come with a price tag, and it may not be one he can afford.
This wry debut is at once a fanboy’s homage to the history of superhero storytelling in America and a keen-eyed satire of those same stories, raising questions about race and privilege that are becoming impossible to ignore.
