You'll pry my books off my cold, dead body. By the time you shift them all I'll be flat and dessicated.

Liu, Ian McDonald, Bill Willingham, James Maxey, Paul Cornell, Mike Carey, Mike Baron, Daryl Gregory, Gail Simone, Stephen Baxter, Chris Roberson, Peter David, Kathleen David, Joseph Mallozzi Over all a fairly solid collection of super-hero themed stories, this volume suffered a little from excessive uniformity of tone. It wasn't a bad tone, but after a few stories it got a tad predictable, and I can't help but feel that the authors as a whole were overly influenced by Austin Grossman's Soon I Will Be Invincible.

My favorite stories were uniformly by authors who were already on my to-read list: Matthew Sturges, James Maxey, Chris Roberson, Daryl Gregory, and Gail Simone. So while this volume did not suggest any new authors for me to try, it is nice to have the confirmation that I probably will like their books once I get them.
