Behind the Mask is an anthology of 20 short stories about superheroes and/or supervillains. There are a variety of stories by authors that are both familiar to me and new to me. Besides the super powers, one thing all the stories had in common were that they were more about the superhero as a person rather than their exploits fighting crime. They were stories about people that happened to have super powers rather than stories that focused on those powers. I really liked all the stories in the collection, even the weaker stories were good. It has spurred me to look into other works by a number of the "new to me" authors. I received a copy of Behind the Mask as part of the Library Thing Early Reviewers Program in return for an honest review.
