Editorial Reviews

Review

4.5/5 Stars - "Masterfully-written, this compilation lets us peek inside these people's ordinary lives, and shows us that they may not be as different as we think. . . . Absolutely recommend it!"

(Inky Reviews)

"In this world where cynicism and noir are popular, I feel that superheroes are the antidote. I found that hopeful vision in those particular stories of Behind The Mask which makes me glad that I read them."

(Shomeret: The Masked Reviewer)

Reeks (Love Hurts, 2015, etc.) and debut editor Richardson assemble a series of tales centered on superheroes’ constant struggles with saving the world and maintaining secret identities. . . . A momentous, readable collection, its sole downside being that there are only 20 superhero stories.

(Kirkus Reviews (starred review))

“Presenting a full range of strong, articulate, varied voices, distinctive troubled characters, and thought-provoking narratives, Behind the Mask stands out as a mighty collection of supremely imaginative and innovative tales.”

(Colorado Review - Nicholas Litchfield)

“The variety of approaches to the collections theme is impressive. The characters may have amazing abilities, but their problems and challenges frequently remain in the realm of the human.”

(Register Guard | Brian Juenemann)

“Reeks and Richardson have pulled together a treasure trove of 20 stories . . . exploring the lives of superheroes when they’re not saving the world. . . . There is nary a miss in this diverse and thoughtful collection, which will have readers considering what it means to be human.” 

(Publisher's Weekly)

“Verdict: Fans of superhero fiction will find that these imaginative stories, with their original perspectives, make for a thoroughly worthwhile compilation.”

(Library Journal | Jennifer Funk)

“These stories take the tropes that we know all too well and turn them on their ears, lampooning and embracing the cliches in equal measure, humanizing larger-than-life characters with a deft hand.”

(San Francisco Book Review)

“Delightfully Entertaining”

(New Pages)

(4/5 stars) “[A]n exceptionally high quality anthology.”

(Rocket Stack Rank)

Review

Short fiction readers should seek out . . . Behind the Mask: A Superhero Anthology.
