MASKED on largehearted boy

Today is Masked official publication day, and to celebrate we've worked up a special post made available through the kindness and generosity of music, literature and pop culture blog, largehearted boy. In what I'm sure you will admit is a rather unique way to talk about an anthology, largehearted boy invited yours truly and each of the anthology's contributors to write a short piece selecting a song and explaining that song's relationship to their own story (or in my case, the anthology as a whole). Every single contributor chimes in, and the result is a very interesting "soundtrack" to the book. Check it out. Meanwhile, here's the table of contents once again:
