I said recently that I’m on a mission to read more in 2018. I’ve just completed my first book and I like to share with others my thoughts on the stories I’ve been losing myself in. This review is about a young team of mutants from the Marvel universe called Generation X.
I’m a married man and I’m having an affair. No. It’s not with another woman (don’t be silly). It’s with superhero novels. I’m attracted to them. I’m on a mission to grow my library of them to high proportions. How did it come to this, this obsession with amassing the largest superhero prose novel collection? Simple. I love me some superheroes because I love the good guy.
Today I’m going to give my two bits about a book that I had mentioned that I was reading which has finally been finished. Writing book reviews is one of my secret joys and ¢ writing them a moan website I have a lot of freedom when it comes to the information that I want to include within the book review. Sometimes a like to give some very detailed insights into books but that’s mostly for nonfiction. When it comes to fiction, I tend to be a little bit more general which is what I’ve done here with this review. But even so, my hope is that it gives you enough information to where you can make it a decision whether or not you want to go and pick this book up.
I’m a superhero fan. I’ll be a superhero fan until the day I die. That love has filtered over into the kind of stories I love to create. Superheroes, however, pose a unique problem because it’s not strictly science fiction and it’s not strictly fantasy. As a writer, how do you categorize where you’ll list it on Amazon, Barnes&Noble, and the rest of the online book distributors? This has always been a problem for those who write in the area of superheroes. I explain at length in this post.
There was a time where if it was found out that you collected comic books that you were weird, consuming all of that fiction nonsense. It was O.K. for kids but for adults, that was a no, no. We had to fit that grown up mold and be interested in only things that grown ups should be interested in, whatever that means.
My, how things have changed.
Today, being into all things superhero is the new cool. It has experienced a new renaissance. The comics never left but now we have more movies, television programs, and prose novels than probably any other time since superheroes have been around. It is arguably rivaling the popularity back during World War II. It is good to be a superhero nerd and it’s the best time to be a superhero nerd and a writer at the same time.
