Herb Collins doesn’t just dream about flying, he takes to the skies. And as soon as this self-conscious grocery store manager can figure out a proper secret identity, he’ll be the biggest superhero Cleveland has ever seen!
But be careful what you wish for. When Herb dons his costume and takes on his first real fight, he learns a lesson he’ll never forget.
This short story, written ten years before Hungry Gods was ever conceived, features characters that have become lore in the Identity Crisis Universe.
About the Author
If taking a college fencing class, eating from the trash can, and smelling like an animal were qualifications for becoming a sword-swinging barbarian, J. D. Brink might be Conan’s protégé. But since that career path seemed less than promising, he has instead been a sailor, spy, nurse, and officer in the U.S. Navy, as well as a gravedigger, insurance adjuster, and school teacher in civilian life. Today (fall, 2014) he and his family live in Japan, where he's providing a bad example for all Americans. In his writing, as in life, Mr. Brink enjoys dabbling in multiple genres.
