"The Quick Stop 5" by Sam Weller -- can you say "industrial accident"?
"Remains of the Night" by John McNally -- mash "creepy" and "depressing" and you get the idea
"The Meerkat" by Owen King -- I love the origin of the giant Russian Robot
"Man Oh Man -- It's Manna Man" by George Singleton -- what a great superpower!
"My Interview with the Avenger" by Tom Bissell -- if they had interviewed Big Daddy from Kick-Ass (the movie I mean), it might go like this
"Mr Big Deal" by Sean Doolittle -- to catch one, send one
"The Somewhat Super" by David Yoo -- check your local VFW chapter
"Bad Karma Girl Wins at Bingo" by Kelly Braffet -- and also meets her Dad
Some of the tales are OK, some are more "literary" or "serious" -- I confess that they weren't as rewarding to me, though.
All in all, this was a fun read. With twenty-some stories, this book can probably entertain you.
