Behind the Mask

$16.95eBook: $8.95

Behind the Mask is a multi-author collection with stories by award-winning authors Kelly Link, Cat Rambo, Carrie Vaughn, Seanan McGuire, Lavie Tidhar, Sarah Pinsker, Keith Rosson, Kate Marshall, Chris Large and others. It is partially, a prose nod to the comic world—the bombast, the larger-than-life, the save-the-worlds and the calls-to-adventure. But it’s also a spotlight on the more intimate side of the genre. The hopes and dreams of our cape-clad heroes. The regrets and longings of our cowled villains. That poignant, solitary view of the world that can only be experienced from behind the mask.

Behind the Mask is a Kirkus Best Indie Books of 2017

Behind the Mask made the Kirkus Best Indie Books of 2017 list and we think this is news of heroic proportions, which is kind of fitting given that it is a superhero anthology. This was such a fun anthology to work on and we were delighted with the range of amazing stories contributed. Well-known authors like Carrie Vaughn, Seanan McGuire and Kelly Link and others we’d never read before but were so excited to discover! In fact, it was the first story several of our authors had ever published. If you haven’t checked out this collection, what better reason than to see why it made the list! We hope you enjoy it as much as we did.
