TOC: ‘Superheroes’ Edited by Rich Horton

Prime Books has posted the table of contents for Rich Horton’s upcoming anthology Superheroes.

Here’s the book description:

Superheroes: modern gods and goddesses, remote, revered, but like the pantheon of heroes and heroines of ancient myth, great power tempered with flaws. And now, find within these pages tales by gifted and award-winning authors who move superheroes from the four-color panels of comic books to fiction… reminding every adult of the child within, who ever wanted to wear a cape and cowl!

  1. I realise that you copied the ToC from the Prime Books website, but unfortunately I can’t post a comment over there.

    Anyway, small nitpick: Kelly Link’s “Secret Identity” is listed twice.

    I’ve fixed it on the Prime Books website.

  3. Good catch, Jetse! I’ve updated it here, too.

  4. Be interesting to see if DC or (especially) Marvel do anything to challenge the title of this – although you can argue that “superheroes” is just a word, it’s a joint trademark of the two companies, and Marvel has a history of challenges. They made Pyr change the title of their Masked anthology from whatever it was before (was it called “With Great Power?” I don’t remember).
