Once in a while I’ll find an e-book with an invisible character, and usually I’ll buy it just to see what it’s about. Some of the ones I’ve seen lately:
- “Invisible,” Elayne S. Venton, Changeling Press, 2006
- “Paladin’s Pride 1: Out of Sight,” Angelina Evans, Changeling Press, 2004
- “Invisible Touch,” Summer Devon, Ellora’s Cave, 2006
On the way here:
- “The Invisible Rose,” A. J. Cove, Cobblestone Press, 2006
These tend to be filed under “Fantasy” or “Romance — Paranormal,” which isn’t too bothersome a characterization: H. G. Wells gave The Invisible Man a subtitle of “A Grotesque Romance,” which fits with the traditional connotation of “romance” as “adventure,” sexual content notwithstanding.
I should point out that I’ve written a couple of short-short stories on the topic, one of which isn’t all that bad.
