Book Reviews: Interstellar Pig + Super Heroes part 2

Interstellar Pig by William Sleator
From 1987, Barney and his useless parents are on holiday. Three strangers move in next door and want Barney to hang out with them and play a mysterious board game. Barney soon realises he’s caught up in a mysterious conflict. This was okay but dated.

Super Heroes edited by Rich Horton, part 2

Super. Family
A superhero has to deal with a rebellious daughter and his resentful wife. This was okay.

The Strange Desserts of Professor Natalie Doom
A mad scientist’s daughter bakes her way to success. This was good.

Best Line:
“Most people believe he died in his burning lab, shouting defiance at the National Guardsmen trying to control the Hydra in the front yard.”

Downfall
A retired never was villain is ordered to investigate the death of a superhero and uncovers family secrets in the process. This was good.

Dirae
How is a superhero born? This was creepy.

Grandma
A retired superhero’s grand-daughter precipitates trouble. This was mediocre.

The Los Angeles Women’s Auxiliary Superhero League
Three vapid LA types form a superhero club. This was okay.

Wonjjang and the Madman of Pyongyang
A South Korean superhero vs a North Korean supervillain. This is way too long.
