• Ka-Pow! An Anthology of Superhero Stories

    by  • November 14, 2013 • Administrative, From the Editor


    Ka-Pow! collects fiction and non-fiction superhero tales into one e-book with a good purpose: to donate money to the Foundation for Sustainable Development. Timid Pirate worked with Aaron Dietz to put together this star-studded anthology. As superheroes take over screen, stage and page, and with costumed patrollers out of the conventions and in the streets, Timid Pirate is delighted to bring Ka-Pow! to the limelight. Ka-Pow! is the written superhero, an anthology of real-life and fictional tales about superheroes. With a star-studded, multi-caped cast of authors, there’s enough delightful mayhem to cover the masking, unmasking, fighting, loving and bandaging-up of superheroes.

    This anthology has been a delight to curate and to edit, and the table of contents includes:

    I got my first red pen at the age of nine, editing for a neighbor's grant publications. Little did she know she'd created a professional nitpicker, someone who would later mark up paperbacks and mail them to the publisher with tsk-tsk notes. Making stories better makes me happy.
