2022 Book Review: Heroes


Heroes by Brendan Cupp (Editor)

A Anthology, 2022 from Lost Boys Press, 385 Pages

What I Didn’t Like:

  • As with any anthology, there are a few stories that weren’t really my style. But I’m sure that’s different than the ones that would be YOUR style … and that’s the beauty of anthologies. 
  • There were definitely some myths/legends that I didn’t recognize. It would be neat to have a reference or inspiration nod somewhere (even on a website) where I could do more digging if I wanted. 

What I Did Like:

  • Some of the stories were AMAZING. Specifically, I adored The Call and Behind the Mask. They sucked me right in and the vibe was wonderful. 
  • I did get excited if I recognized the myth/legend a story was based on. I think I literally cheered when the title for the Robin Hood story came up. 
  • This is really a diverse collection of stories, which means there’s something for everyone! 

Who Should Read This One:

  • If you like short stories, give these a go! You are SURE to find something in here that you like. 
  • If you’re a fan of mythology and like when those stories are played with a little, PREORDER THIS ONE ALREADY. What are you waiting for? It was practically written FOR YOU. 

My Rating: 4 Stars. 

The formatting was great, the central theme is awesome, and if you like short stories this is for you!
