Look to the skies!


Put on your cape and fly over to book/daddy's other worksite, Art&Seek! There you will find a feature about superheroes -- they seem to be rather a big deal right now, don't they? I've heard something about one or two this summer -- and specifically you'll read about the new anthology of superhero short stories, Who Can Save Us Now?

But this story also features:

  • a real-live audio clip of book/daddy! Hear him speak -- intelligibly!
  • interviews with real authors, a purported editor and an actual professor
  • intelligent discussions of superhero-dom
  • PLUS, best of all. book/daddy's successful attempt to get Black Sabbath's "Iron Man" played on an NPR station!

Noir favorites, who makes the cut and why
