gods of justice Reviews
Gods of Justice features ten stories, each by a different author and set in its own universes, giving diverse experiences at the applications and implications of superpowers. Some people are about to discover their superpowers; some are confronted with new challenges; others are called out of retirement. Be it the present or future, Earth or elsewhere, the different settings are easy to get into.My favorites were probably "Identity Crisis", about a teenager who finds out her twin sister is a superhero; "Blunt Force Trauma", about a murder-mystery surrounding an old teammate; and "The Dodge", inexplicably set on an Old West planet and starring a sheriff who must keep his power a secret from everyone.Least favorites were "Neutral Ground", set on the battlefields of World War I; "Breaking the Circle", about a temporal paradox; and "The Justice Blues", about an abusive superhusband.If I understand correctly, this anthology's primary format is an e-book, which may've contributed to the occasional lack of copyediting, allowing "bowls" to be substituted for "bowels", for example. But such issues are rare and don't occur where they could confuse.
I reviewed each story separately. Taken as a whole, the collection is a fun, varied set of experiences. None are cliche; each gives a very different perspective into very different worlds.The Mass Grave of John Johnsons by Micah UrbanDaughter of Nyx by Kelly WisdomGoing My Own Way by Dayton WardIdentity Crises by Lisa Gail GreenBlunt Force Trauma by Kevin Hosey
Being a superhero would be pretty cool. Flying, smashing, stretching, web-slinging--all that stuff sounds like a lot of fun. But there's a downside to everything. For example, superheroes have no extended families and probably very few friends. "It was the curse of dedicating one's existence to serving the ravenous gods of justice." Dark knights and WWII super soldiers take note. Full review here: http://superheronovels.com/2011/10/09...
This contains an amazing story by Jordan Taylor, and one of my favourites of hers (and it's hard to choose).
B+; some good stories and ideas in here.
