Editors David Cranmer and Scott D. Parker have given us another fine set of stories. The Use of superhero doesn’t mean the what one normally associates with the word. To be sure, there are people with powers in some of these. But the majority are regular folks doing what needs to be done to help someone, save a life, or vice versa. People of all ages playing at being superhero and finding a core that makes those heroes in their own frail bodies.
All sorts of stories, some in the future, most present day, and James Reasoner has one set in the Revolutionary war.
Here’s the line-up:
THE LONG DROP – Jake Hinson
THE REVENGE OF THE RED AVENGER – Kevin Burton Smith
PHANTOM BLACK AND THE BIG WIDE OPEN – Garnett Elliott
DRUMS – James reasoner
DARK GUT in …Terror On The Digger! -Liam Jose
MOON MAD – Sandra Seamons
PUSHED TOO FAR – Jerry Bloomfield
SPOILED – Keith Rawson
GARBAGE MAN – Thomas Pluck
WHITE TIGER – Court Merrigan
DOBERMAN: THIRD PARTY LAW ENFORCEMENT – Benoit Lelievre
SOMEWHERE BEYOND THE PAVEMENT – Chad Eagleton
THE LAST HERO – Steve Weddle
As always in story collections, I liked some better than others. Doesn’t mean any of them are bad, they’re not, just that they touched something in me. The next fellow will likely have a whole different set of favorites.
