A Hero By Any Other Name

Woohoo, the anthology with my story is now OUT!

Ok, you guys, I know this is right on the tail of my last post about Silence in the Library Publishing’s Kickstarter for Time Traveled Tales (which is already up to $2k!!) BUT the other big project that Silence in the Library LLC has been working on is now out! It’s special anthology called “A Hero By Any Other Name” – which is all short stories about superhero sidekicks. (It’s a companion to another Origins anthology with superhero stories.)

Authors who have stories in A Hero By Any Other Name include: Aaron Allston, Michael Stackpole, Maxwell Alexander Drake, Jean Rabe, Janine Spendlove, Bryan Young, more, like me! (Pen name, Maggie Allen.)

This book has a cover by Denis Loubet and also has interior art by Mark Dos Santos, which is so cool. Having art drawn of my story? Again, so cool.

As you can tell, I’m super excited about this! If you are at Origins, you can pick up a copy for 10 bucks – otherwise it’s available on Amazon right now!


What’s my story about? “A Marvelous New World” takes place in the aftermath of Janine Spendlove’s story, “He was a Marvelous Man.” Her story made me wonder how the appearance of a real, live superhero would affect the comic book geek community, and I also liked the idea of those geeks getting a chance to become a part of superhero mythology themselves.
