In a world with superheroes, only a Social Justice Leaguer having a midlife crisis and two government lackeys-- one of whom is definitely not a mutated crocodile-- have a chance to stop a plot to release a chemical weapon on several million civilians.

Year Eleven

I do not expect to win a Pulitzer Prize for Superhero Nation.  For one, it has a hell of a lot more gratuitous swearing, wanton bloodletting, inane adverbs and aliens than most Pulitzer winners. 

I would like to deeply thank the people and agencies that made this work possible, particularly the Undergraduate Research Opportunity Program, the Institute for Scholarship in the Liberal Arts, College of Arts and Letters, and the University of Notre Dame.  I would also like to thank the US Marine Corps, Office of Special Investigations, Social Justice League, and Federal Bureau of Investigations and their representatives for being as open about their work with a failed journalist as they have been. 

A purely factual account of my perspective of the last eleven years would be abjectly pointless.  I’m not telepathic, so I can offer at best informed speculation about what other individuals thought at any particular moment.  This work is designed to offer informed speculation about what actually happened, based on thousands of hours of interviews, but obviously Mr. Mallow and some other crucial individuals are unavailable for comment. 

Finally, this book is dedicated to everyone conspiring on my behalf, whether domestically or over there.  These individuals know who they are; naming them would probably get them killed.  Names and any other relevant facts have been changed to protect secret identities. 

Without any further ado, I welcome you to Superhero Nation.  You can read the first chapter here.
