Salty Salt Sue met Fat Johnny Little at a card game so hot it burned a girl, the sultry Louisiana night dampening her clothes, making her tingle from the waist down.

Today is the official release date of the superamazing superhero / supervillain anthology MASKED MOSAIC: Canadian Super Stories. Co-editor Claude Lalumière and I are thrilled with this incredible bundle of awesomeness. Over the coming days, Tyche Books will be posting little mini-views Claude and I crafted about every story.

Go. Read. You will not be sorry.
