Give the gift of super heroes 

If there is somebody on your holiday list who both reads and loves super heroes, you could do a lot worse than giving them The Darker Mask, an anthology of super hero stories with, well, a different slant. Edited by my friend Christopher Chambers (his blog is here), these stories are both exciting and literate, and will engage anybody who enjoys the genre.

Here is a useful list of top graphic novels on Amazon.

I'm hoping even right wingers will love Walter Mosely, Lorenzo ("Sleepers") Carcaterra, Peter Speigelman, Reed Farrel Coleman, Naoimi Hirahara, Victor Lavalle et al.

Walter Mosley is one of the best writers of hardboiled crime fiction since Chandler and Hammett. Mosley's "Devil in a Blue Dress" (1990) is a wonderful novel.
