The Superyogi Scenario
James Connor, author

Experience authentic wisdom that creates superheroes. The Superyogi Scenario is a fresh new take on the superhero story that packs a philosophical punch. Instead of getting supernatural powers from radiation or spider bites, powers are developed through yoga and meditation. Drawing from authentic verses in The Yoga Sutra, this thought-provoking thriller envisions yogic supernatural abilities rising among the world's growing population of yoga practitioners—and wild consequences when heroes and villains emerge.

With this fun book, both yogis and comic-book lovers will be inspired. Entertaining, engaging, and thought provoking, The Superyogi Scenario has something for everyone. Practitioners of yoga will find themselves looking up comics; comic-book fans will be inspired to book a yoga session. Everyone will look for the next installment in this series.

Kirkus Reviews

The supernatural meets the spiritual in this unusual, endearing thriller. In his debut novel, Connor may have carved out a new subgenre.

Jeffrey Small, bestselling author of The Breath of God and The Jericho Deception

James Connor’s The Superyogi Scenario wraps a superhero tale around a spiritual adventure. Blending ancient Indian wisdom into an international thriller, Connor reinterprets yogic teachings for a new generation in a novel that entertains as much as it illuminates. Grab your yoga mat along with this book, and be prepared for a fast-moving, delightfully different novel.

Lama Marut, author of A Spiritual Renegade’s Guide to the Good Life and Be Nob

The Superyogi Scenario is exciting, page-turning fiction with a foundation in ethics. Wisely, the author integrates into the story line the fact that the “super powers” or siddhis supposedly manifested by advanced practitioners of yoga can be used either for good or for selfish and hurtful purposes. I really enjoyed reading this modern re-visioning of traditional Indian mythology on the acquisition of supernatural powers. 

Midwest Book Review

The Superyogi Scenario is a novel with a difference; and in a world replete with novels, this story is a standout. The Superyogi Scenario is exceptional both in its basic concept and in its development: something that crosses genres with a confident combination of action, philosophy, and intriguingly different concepts on what makes a superhero—or, a supervillain.

Professor Edwin F. Bryant, author of The Yoga Sutras of Patanjali: A New Edition

The basic principles and attainments of yoga have manifest in many forms and permutations over the last two millennia across the Indian subcontinent. It is inevitable that they will surface in further unexpected ways in their modern transplanted forms on the Western cultural landscape. The Superyogi Scenario conveys essential ideas of the yogic path with boots and capes!
