Free Fiction! Also, superheroes!

February 23rd, 2009 • Kate

Hate waiting for yet-to-be-released books by your favorite kt literary clients? (It’s ok, I know you do.) Well, here’s a special free story just for my readers — and everyone else on the internet. Catherine Cheek’s short story “Waiting Room at the Hero League” is online now at Big Pulp. As you may remember from my previous boasting posts, Catherine also had a short story in John Joseph Adams’ anthology The Living Dead, which is eligible for a Hugo Nomination.
And if you love superheroes — and who doesn’t? — you can also swoon over the Amazon pre-order page for Powerless by Matthew Cody, another kt literary client. I’m expecting ARCs any day now.
So, to continue a theme, I’m curious — who’s your favorite superhero? As I’m still reliving Oscar night, I will admit to a certain fondness for an adamantium-infused Hugh Jackman as Wolverine. Yummy.

    Oh hands down it has to be Billy Zane as the Phantom! Can I just say that he was yummier than chocolate cheesecake? His suit didn't need any padding… that was all him with the rock hard abs…

  2. Shana Says:

    Sailor Moon is the best superhero. Girl power, cute fashion, and loyal friendships that overcome any obstacles. Plus there's a hot older guy. Maybe a little too old. And how many other teen superheroes have to protect their future daughter by pretending to be her sister?

    I have to swoon over Robert Downey, Jr.'s Ironman… yep – I have, too.

    YAY Catherine & Matthew!!
    My favorite line in Catherine's story: “Then I’ll use your shoe,” the cat offered.
    Here's another vote of Wolverine love, but my all-time favorite is Peter Parker. I have a weakness for nerds. So smart! So cute! (But let's pretend that last Spider-man movie never happened, no?)
