I love a good story, regardless of the genre. Anything from 'Pride and Prejudice' to 'The Shining'.

    Davy has always been alone. He believes that he's the only person who can teleport. But what if he isn't? A mysterious group of people has taken Davy captive. They don't want to hire him, and they don't have any hope of appealing to him to help them. What they want is to own him. They want to use his abilities for their own purposes, whether Davy agrees to it or not. And so they set about brainwashing him and conditioning him. But there's one thing that they don't know....

    What did you love best about Reflex?

    The characters were real. The good guys had moral dilemmas but the bad guys were really bad.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I tired but I listen while I drive so I had to break up the listening time.

    Although C. M. Kornbluth died an untimely death at age 34, in his short career he managed to write dozens of short stories and a number of novels, often collaborating with other writers. The five stories in this collection are all his own, and show a writer at the height of his powers.

    Joel D Offenberg says: "Familiar favorites, well done."

    What did you love best about The Little Black Bag and Other Stories?

    It took me back to when I first read the collection when I was barely in my teens. Kornbluth was one of the reasons I fell in love with Science Fiction.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    No favorites, really. The Marching Morons will always be my favorite of the collection because I see some of the same things happening in our societry now.


    Any additional comments?

    This is classic science fiction. Kornbluth died way before his time and I can only imagine the quality of work he could have accomplished.

    Stealth. Gorgon. Regenerator. Cerberus. Zzzap. The Mighty Dragon. They were heroes. Vigilantes. Crusaders for justice, using their superhuman abilites to make Los Angeles a better place. Then the plague of living death spread around the globe. Despite the best efforts of the superheroes, the police, and the military, the hungry corpses rose up and overwhelmed the country. The population was decimated, heroes fell, and the city of angels was left a desolate zombie wasteland like so many others.

    Aser Tolentino says: "Superheroes vs. Zombies? Sure, why not..."
    "Very nice blend of two favorite genres"

    If you could sum up Ex-Heroes in three words, what would they be?

    Funny, scary and sad.


    What did you like best about this story?

    My favorite parts were the back stories of the heroes and how their beginnings formed the perspective they used in the now.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    So many scenes stand out. The confrontation of the heroes and the Seventeens, the celebrity exes point standings, the final confrontation with Josh, The Regenerator.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I would have, definitely.


    Any additional comments?

    Few books create characters that appeal so much that you want to know more about them and to continue watching their exploits. This is definitely one of those kinds of books.
