Collection notices. Disapproving looks. Sleeping in a van. Life’s hard for wannabe superhero. Things get harder still when Centurion’s sidekick, Henry, dies.
The police say Henry’s death was an accident. Centurion knows better. Henry’s death is part of a bigger pattern. Someone’s murdering children, kids with extraordinary psychic and physical abilities, across the South and Midwest.
He needs to find the killer fast. In Chicago, his prime suspect has already set her sights on friends Astrid and Kim. But these teens aren’t like anything he’s ever seen. They’re special. Like Henry.
Centurion will face spies, monsters, and the ultimate evil: the Chicago auto pound. If he doesn’t watch out, he might just find he’s the one in need of saving.
Freaks Anon is a paranormal superhero tale. Included with the novel is the dystopian short story Monument. All proceeds from the sale of Freaks Anon will be donated to Stand Up to Cancer.
"Darst works his magic in horror once again, this time expanding into the realm of superheroes in an exciting mash-up that fans of both comic books and the paranormal are sure to enjoy!"

"I had so much fun reading Freaks Anon. Being a huge Alan Moore fan, I’m always hoping to read something intelligent when it comes to superheroes. I crave material like that…and with its great writing and believable characters, Freaks Anon nails it. It’s a fanboy’s dream. I once read that you should only keep the books you will read again, and I’ve tried to live by that. I will definitely keep this book."
- Frank Hrin, Fearshop.com Horror Podcast
"As with Dead Things, Matt Darst has created another sublime world. Freaks Anon is a dark, weird fairy tale of monsters and heroes. Excellent."
- Rich Hawkins, Author of The Last Plague and The Last Outpost
