Garth Reasby has always enjoyed creating and has channeled his creative energies into art, music, prop making, and writing. A renaissance man, Garth has had various jobs ranging from bodyguarding religious figures to project management.
“Awaken” is Garth’s first novel and allowed him to borrow concepts and experiences from his rich personal history and form them into a very modern tale of super heroes in the real world. In addition to a follow-up novel in the Children of Divinity series, Garth is preparing works for a number of anthologies and a new fantasy series.
Garth was born and raised in the Pacific Northwest and currently lives there with his wife Heather Reasby, also an author, and their menagerie of animals. When Garth does find time to relax he enjoys reading, comic books, video games, music, camping, and off-roading, as well as putting a few hours in at the range to keep up his firearm skills.
Still reeling from the loss of one of their own, the fledgling superhero team, Aegis, must put aside its collective grief as they are drawn into a conflict that has been waged for thousands of years. An attack against humanity rages on two fronts as ancient races battle for dominance over a steadily Awakening humanity, and nobody knows who to trust.
Team leader, Jordan Law, former operative of the British Secret Intelligence Service, must somehow keep her team, and her family, from becoming pawns in a much larger game as well as bring down powerful enemies bent on the destruction of society as we know it. At the same time, mysteries of her own past and upbringing are solved in devastating fashion, and the crisis forming in her marriage deepens.
Evolution is always painful, and for the members of Aegis the responsibilities of power and the sacrifices necessary to ensure humanity’s survival might just be too much to bear. None will escape unscathed.
How does the world end? With a bang? Or with a whimper? Will it be zombies? Will it be plague? Will it be forgotten gods or robots, vengeance on their minds? There are a multitude of ways in which the world could end.
Springing forth from the minds of the Talaria Press founders, And I Feel Fine presents eight all-new tales of calamity such as:
From H.L. Reasby comes Venture, a tale of alien invasion, birth and death.
Garth Reasby’s, Zombie Awake, gives us a new, horrifying element of the zombie trope which may change forever the way you view the genre.
In Acts of Reparation, Quiana Kirkland wonders what happens to the things we leave behind.
Ren Cummins undertakes our experiment from Geek Girl Con 2013, using an entirely crowdsourced setting, character, and events to bring us God’s Brownies.

Achilles. Persus. Cu Chulainn. Joan of Arc. Their names ring through the millenia. They were called gods, heroes, the sons and daughters of divinity. Today we know their kind by another word: Superhero.
Jordan Law is the best sniper that the British Secret Intelligence Service has ever seen. Possessing a singular talent for slipping in and out of places that no human should be able to. She is a woman with a secret. Possessing superhuman strength, speed, and reflexes, and the ability to make herself seemingly disappear into thin air, she is the perfect operative, an unstoppable assassin.
After a successful mission to eliminate a terrorist leader, Jordan's secret is discovered by a shadowy organization within British Intelligence. She is drawn into a secret war where superhuman soldiers struggle to keep their own kind from preying on normal humans. Faced with the greatest challenge of her life, Jordan must push herself beyond the limits of what she though she could do to protect her family, her teammates, and the world from a threat that has worked behind the scenes since the earliest days of humanity.
