Masked: Suvudu Interview

"Superheroes are all about power and responsibility"
Matt Stagg's interviewed me yesterday for Suvudu, where we talked about the just-released Masked anthology of superhero fiction.
Here's a taste:

Tell me a little bit about Masked. This is superhero fiction, but most people associate superheroes with comic books. Why take them in a literary direction?

Superheroes have a long history of being portrayed in other media. I grew up on the Batman television show, the Spider-Man cartoon, the Superman films. George RR Martin’s Wildcards anthology series debuted in 1987. Superheroes in other media is nothing new. What is new is the mainstream recognition that superhero storytelling can be as sophisticated as any other genre.
