Behind the Mask: A Superhero Anthology by Kyle Richardson


(This review is for Seanan McGuire's "Pedestal.")

I really loved this one. I'm a huge fan of The Incredibles, so I really enjoy seeing what's "behind the mask." (Yes, the anthology is aptly named.) This story was perfectly crafted and paced and the little snippets of gossip/paparazzi talk were perfect as an opening and closing.

This story nicely addresses the topic of celebrity and access, which is an ever more important issue. It's done in a way that should easily click for most while still being entertaining.
