The new edition of Aphelion is out today, bringing an end to the two months that Too Late the Hero has been featured. Here are a few of the comments I received:
'I greatly enjoyed the flow of dialogue.' - Marianne Kirby, Editor, Cyber Age Adventures
'Very cool idea, very ironic.'
'A very dark future indeed for superheroes: relegated to the funny pages by the endless march of technology…'
'Another winner from Gareth. Tightly written with a good premise and a main character you could empathise with. I enjoyed it.' - Gareth Lyn Powell, Author
'I enjoyed this one very much. Short, and to the point, it simply explores what happens when superheroes become redundant due to technological breakthroughs.'
'I liked this simple but resonant piece.'
'Very short but entertaining.'
'I love it. The idea is so compelling.'
The great thing about Aphelion is that a lot of its readers are also aspiring writers, so you get some good feedback via their lettercol. You might not agree with all of it, but these are the comments I liked!
