Nicholas Ahlhelm is creating a universe of heroes

Over the past ten years, I have slowly released new adventures of multiple superhero sagas. Whether it is LIGHTWEIGHT, QUADRANT, EPSILON or WALKING SHADOWS, I pride myself on creating a group of young heroes in a world that has been filled with super powered beings for a very long time.

The Quadrant Universe was designed to look like our own, but with one major conceit. Throughout history, metahumanity has influenced and shaped mankind. It wasn't until the 40s that many super powered beings first donned costumes, which is a future story in its own right.

So much of my work was created with serialized storytelling in mind. LIGHTWEIGHT started this way before the Amazon Marketplace made individual chapters just financially untenable. Yet I still wanted to find ways to bring LIGHTWEIGHT, QUADRANT and several other stories out in the format I felt best represents them. Thus, the rebirth of this Patreon.

In January 2019, this site will have its full launch with new adventures of LIGHTWEIGHT, the return of QUADRANT, a third all new serial and a handful of bonus stories. My plan is to bring one or two new features every month for a total of somewhere between 20 and 24 new tales. This is guaranteed to feature at least one new volume of both LIGHTWEIGHT and QUADRANT a year, plus all the other content I can fit in between!

But that's four months away. What content will you see in 2018? I have three LIGHTWEIGHT novels, EPSILON and the first six QUADRANT stories already published. Before I launch those stories, 2018 will see the release of those three LIGHTWEIGHT novels (for everyone at the $2 tier or above), those QUADRANT stories plus a never before released one that will wrap the first volume (at the $4 tier or above) and the complete EPSILON novel (at the $5 tier and above.) Of course, I will have a plethora of short stories as well for the higher tiers. If you've never read my work before, you will be able to take it all in from the beginning with as much content in these four months as you will see in 2019!

I have lofty goals for the future of the Quadrant Universe. Together, we can make them all a reality. I thank you for your support as we move into a new era of super powered greatness!
