HeroPress names Devil’s Cape book of the year

heropress_2008

The fine and insightful (of course) blog HeroPress has named Devil’s Cape book of the year in its 2008 review.

I’m honored, grateful, and smiling.

HeroPress is a great, fun blog, and if you’re interested in science fiction, gaming, or comic books, you should have already bookmarked it by now.

I’ve been fortunate to be interviewed over there a couple of times and Devil’s Cape received a strong review there, too. You can check those out here.

Well deserved. Since reading your book I've tried to find other super-hero fiction out there and there just isn't anything good. There's a whole lot of satirical stuff (or what the author probably thinks is satirical!) but nothing which captures the verve like Devil's Cape.

If I had a website I'd name it novel of the year too!

Rob - congratulations! HeroPress know what they're talking about - it's a very good book. Now stop resting on your laurels and get another one out! ;-)

Ben - if you haven't already, try "Soon I Will Be Invincible" by Austin Grossman; very good super-hero fiction.

"Soon I Will Be Invincible" is the only other good superhero novel I can think of off the top of my head.

(PS. Thanks for the kind words about HeroPress, Rob.)

Awesome! And well deserved.

The book sure made me want to play in your sandbox.

Yeah, there don't seem to many original (i.e. not related to Marvel/DC/pulp characters) superhero books around. Even the Wild Card novels aren't really superhero books.

Apparently there is a series of young adult superhero books called "The New Heroes" (I'll have to look out for them).

Anyway, the "award" was indeed well-deserved. Devil's Cape was a great book! Keep up the good work. ;-)

Thanks, all! Fozbaca, yes, I'm working on a sequel.
