Review quote

"Only Superhuman "is a heady comic book fix for the discerning SF reader, filled with a sense of wonder and a sense of seriousness. "Kevin J. Anderson, New York Times bestselling coauthor of Sisterhood of Dune" Many writers have written about superheroes, but nobody does it like Christopher L. Bennett. "Stanley Schmidt, editor of Analog" "Only Superhuman "is, to my knowledge, the first hard science superhero story. And the story is the better for it. "Mike W. Barr, author of Camelot 3000" A tour de force that tells a fascinating story with flair, imagination, and weight. "TV Zone on Star Trek: Ex Machina""
