Paper Tiger

They say the pen is mightier than the sword. For librarian Paige Turner, that couldn’t be any truer. This founding member of The Generation has a most peculiar devotion to the written word.

Not really. The truth is, he’s …

Fat Man & Little Boy

The ultimate odd couple. Prescott Baines, (known as “Fat Man”) is a loud, brash, compassionate and foolhardy man. His brother-in-law, Tinker Matthews (known as “Little Boy”) is a solemn, reserved and highly principled individual.

The Remedy

The woman who fell to Earth. Not literally, but she did literally appear out of nowhere, with no recollection of anything, or anyone. The only impulse left sparking in her brain: The Generation.

Pot & Kettle

English twins Grayson and Francis Filmore were both born blind, on the crux of midnight, one in day and the other in night.

This makes Pot, judge and …

Bouncing Betty

Bouncing Betty has always been a tomboy. Chalk that up to the name Elliot. Growing up there wasn’t a sport Elliot didn’t play, and play aggressively. Much to the chagrin of most the boys in her life.
