I don't often write about classic superheroes, mainly because I think that a lot of material has already been written reinforcing the genre. What I like to do is take something classic, though, and look at it from a different perspective. For example, if one person is a superhero, what about everyone else who isn't?
That is the basis of "Subhero," my new flash fiction story out today at Everyday Fiction. It's a story about how other people can be superheroes, even without powers or celebrity.
I know I'm not supposed to pick favorites with stories, but this was one of my favorites to write. I hope you enjoy reading it.
Who the heck is Alison McBain?
I am a freelance writer and poet with nearly a hundred short pieces published in magazines and anthologies. When not writing, I'm the Book Reviews Editor for the magazine Bewildering Stories. If the Walking Dead isn't on, I draw pictures and do origami meditation in Connecticut, where I live with my family. If the Walking Dead is on... shhhh! The Walking Dead is on!
