Five tween superheroes, sent across the universe to save the world.Now they’re on our Earth, not knowing what the Dooms are, let alone how to stop them

.Eclipse: World’s greatest tween superhero. World’s most terrifying tween supervillain .Opinions differ.

She’s twelve. She’s hardworking, bright, self-reliant, good with tools, vigorously physically fit, tough as nails, still young enough to disguise herself as a boy. Since arriving she’s only blown up one mountain range.

Comet — Trisha Anson is not quite a year older than Eclipse. She’s friendly, considerate, really good in school, athletic, does more than her share around the house. She has superspeed…an hour of housework in a minute. She flies, including across the universe in a long day. Trisha’s brother and sister are personas, too.

Year-younger sister Janie is a budding world chess and go champion. As the persona Aurora, she reads minds, sees distant events, and kills with a glance.

Janie’s twin brother Brian builds fantastic models from scratch. As the persona Star, he has a nearly unbreakable force field and summons plasma beams that cut battleships in half.

The enigmatic Cloud was given his superpowers by the Screaming Skull himself. He summons lightning, titanic winds, and all-obscuring fog. Stand Against the Light offers superhero combat, invincible star demons, alien invasions, and political conspiracy.

Stand Against the Light is Approximately Finished

I eventually need the back cover blurb for the paperback, and need to proofread again one chapter I rewrote from first person to third. The final step is formatting for Smashwords and for Amazon, but that is formatting, not writing.

Stand Against the Light

The novel will be back from the readers in a few days. I would expect that it will take a week or two to edit again, and then time for the cover to be completed, following which it will at very long last appear.

June 11, 2021

Stand Against the Light is out at Editors, all of whom have lives, but editing may be done within a week.

I have a hard deadline for revising a technical paper, and am vigorously at work making the needed revisions.

Sitting on my desk is a stack of 660 technical papers — the references have all been typed — waiting to be inserted into my next polymer book.

Small progress is being made on several next novels, but I am really waiting for Stand Against the Light to be completed.

This weekend I bring out the next issue of N3F Tightbeam.
