    1. As with most anthologies, some unevenness in the caliber of the writers and stories exists. The first of the nine stories "Retreads" (by Aaron Allston) is 60 pages long and represents 25% of the book and is an excellent story. If you like hero stories in prose, this particular gem is worth the entrance price.The stories about someone other than the "main" hero - the sidekick, the villain, someone nearly ready to be a hero, someone retired from heroing. The best of the stories are those with myst [...]


    2. An excellent anthology of short stories about "lesser" superheroes. A companion volume to "Heroes" containing many stories by the same authors. I loved almost all of the stories. A very good variety of different aspects of a universe with superpowers. And unlike many scifi anthologies, there wasn't any gratuitous content to turn away the more discerning reader. Highly recommended.



    3. In the interest of full disclosure, I have a short story in this anthology. I recently had a chance to sit down and read the whole thing cover to cover. It was fun to finally read what my fellow authors had written. I'd read a few of the stories in rough draft as a beta reader, and the others I hadn't read at all. There's definitely a mix of tone here, from humorous to serious, and also a variety in the types of stories told. In other words, I think there is something here for everyone to like. [...]


    4. More like a scrapbook compilation, not many good stories here. Many stories are sequels or prequels (ugh) to ones in "Heroes!" anthologies (either one).
