Worst. Superhero. Ever. and Other Odd Short Stories by Scott Baron

Expect the unexpected.

‘Odd’ is definitely a great way to describe these short stories, but not in a bad way. They’re quirky, fun, and hard to put down.

Worst. Superhero. Ever. is about a guy with super powers who just can’t get it right. He’s the Bizarro to your Superman, but also a very relate-able person. I could see this being a TV show.

One Last Fix is, as you might guess, about a kind of drug, but never in a million years would you guess what.

The Lesbian Farmers of Quagshire is an interesting take on a possible future. I wanted to like it more, but homophobia always gives me a bad feeling, despite the nice twist.

Huh was the most unexpected and intriguing. I can’t even say anything because it would spoil the surprise. I loved it.

If you have a half hour to spare, these stories are worth a read. I still think back on them here and there, and chuckle to myself. Definitely an author to keep tabs on.
