Buy This Book - The Darker Mask

The Darker Mask, an anthology of superhero fiction edited by Gary Phillips and Christopher Chambers, drops next Tuesday on the 19th.

It's not exactly your usual men in tights sort of fare. Really, this is an awesome collection of stories. Speaking of which, I would be remiss not to pimp my peeps by pointing out two in particular, Tat Master by Naomi Hirahara and Housework by Doselle Young, two stories that really bring something wonderfully dark and fun to the collection.

Contributors to the anthology include Walter Mosley, L. A. Banks, Naomi Hirahara, Lorenzo Carcaterra, Tananarive Due and Stephen Barnes, Mike Gonzales, Gar Anthony Haywood, Ann Nocenti, Jerry Rodriguez, Reed Farrell Coleman, Doselle Young, Mat Johnson, Peter Spiegelman, Alexandra Sokoloff, Christopher Chambers, Gary Phillips, Victor LaValle, and Wayne Wilson. This is a lineup that would be hard to beat.
