The Sixteen Burdens

by David Khalaf

What if humanity’s great historical figures weren’t just talented—they were supernaturally talented? The year is 1939, and everyone who’s anyone has descended upon the glamorous streets of Hollywood. It’s a great place to be if you’re an actor, singer, politician, or businessman. Not so much if you’re Gray Studebaker, a young guttersnipe stuck selling movie-star maps on the street corner.

During a rash of celebrity kidnappings, Gray discovers the stars on his map are hiding unusual talents for which they are being abducted. When Gray tries to solve the crimes on his own, he finds himself caught up in a battle for power that stretches back to the beginnings of humanity.

The hunt begins for an ancient tool that can rescue his uniquely talented friends from an indestructible maniac who wants to steal their talents to create an invincible army.
