About the Author: Marcus V. Calvert

Marcus V. Calvert is a native of Detroit who grew up with an addiction to sci-fi. Since 2011, he’s written three short story collections (Unheroic, The Book Of Schemes, and Protected) and a novel (I, Villain).

His first super villain trilogy was completed in 2016. The works include:

I, Villain (Available on & his website)
Murder Sauce (Also on Amazon & his website)
Frag Code (Just on his website)

Now, he's working on his 2nd edition books. The first one will be a rework of Unheroic. The 1st edition was a single piece with 36 short stories. This one(s) will be different:

Unheroic: Book 1 (25 stories) is on his website in both print and e-book.

Unheroic: Book 2 (25 more stories) will be out in Spring of 2017.

More 2nd editions will come as Marcus is taking more control of the publishing side of his business.

His goal’s still to tell unique, twisted stories that people will be reading long after he’s gone. For him, the name and the fame aren’t important. Only the stories matter.

You can visit his website at: for links to his books or to connect with his truly unusual Facebook page. And his deals are more than a little strange. You should check them out. :)

Simply defined, a "scheme" is nothing more than a systematic plan of action. Like snowflakes, no two schemes are exactly alike. This bizarre grouping of 36 mixed-genre short stories (sci-fi, horror and even some classic fiction) are all about schemes and the minds behind them. Some schemes are devious, like framing a blind rock start for war crimes . . . in another galaxy. Some schemes are pretty stupid, like kidnapping the girlfriend of a known world-class assassin, then trying to ransom her back. And some of these schemes are just plain different, like a trio of super villain finalists each vying to win the next annual Villain-Of-The-Year Award. So kick back, leave your conscience outside of these pages, and step into the world of the consummate schemer.
