A sorta shared-universe series called Shadow Unit (the first one was free on amazon last month.)

A group of SF authors got together and designed stories as if they had been novelizations of tv scripts, except the tv show didn't exist. Sort of a combo of CSI with elements of Xfiles but some real extra-sensory elements. An "anomaly" can influence/take over an individual under severe stress, and give that person limited "powers" that depend upon how the person thinks of themself. Somebody might be able to kill with a touch, someone else might be able to cause an effect like a bullet wound even though the gun doesn't fire, etc.

There's an associated website, fake blog entries that readers can interact with, etc, but most of the material has been assembled into ebooks as if it was a season or several episodes. I just went through all twelve.

Look for "Shadow Unit 1" on amazon or smashwords.
