Good and Evil. Two sides of the same coin? Or something less defined, something more liminal? Entertaining and always thought-provoking, J.M. Frey offers three remarkable stories that explore the grey area of the hero/villain dichotomy. Funny and irreverent, "The Once and Now-ish King" finds King Arthur reborn at the moment of Albion's greatest need, fully aware and ready to save his realm once more. Except he's got no Merlin, no Excalibur-and he's still a newborn! In "Just a Four Letter Word," when a young man steps out of the shadows of the woods and into Jennet's life, she wonders if she's fallen into the stories she grew up on. But does she have what it takes to outwit the sadistic Faery Queen and free him? Finally, in "The Maddening Science," a former supervillain is forced to return to a life of crime to save his stalker. But if he succeeds, what danger will she pose to his freedom, his anonymity, and the secret past he so long ago buried? Heroes. Villains. Monsters. Myths. Legends. Who is the good guy, who the bad, and who gets to decide which is which? After all, 'hero' is just another four letter word.
