This second anthology has some return appearances of characters from the first book, as well as some new stuff. Most of the stories are smokin' hot while having a good plotline.
Yes, I actually care about stuff like plots and literary values. Which brings up my one peeve about this book - the punctuation looks like it was put in at random. If only proofreading were still an issue in this day and age I would have given this book a full 5 star rating. I especailly cringed at the almost-last story where a character named Marcus turned into Martin for one line (it was like a separate guy walked into the room, said a line and walked out again without anyone noticing).
But the stories themselves more than make up for the lack of editing.
"The Bat's Dilemma" features the The Bat and The Raven in a new adventure. The style is just the right mix of action, sex and camp.
"Junior OHO" brings back Junior from Heros in Waiting as he moves out for a solo carrier. Yum!
"Toolman" is a new character who lives up to his name.
"Master Mind's Downfall" is a return appearance by that hero, with as hot a story as his first.
"Saving Terra" has the further adventures of Gravitar and friends. Hot and cute - and I don't just mean the way the guys look in tights.
"The Otter" is a sexy story about a guy who found a power-enhancing talisman.
"Undoing Tantraman" is a great, hot story about two villanous sidekicks getting a superhero to lose control.
"The Ice King Cometh" is told mostely from the viewpoint of a supervillain.
"Saving Captain Cum" is cute and hot - just enough camp to make you laugh, and enough action to make you...
"Kosher Man Gets Porked" - I'd say the title says it all :-D
"Hummingbird II" is a second chapter featuring the flying Irishman and his devoted, lusty sidekick. A nice bit of light bondage.
"Antimatter Matt" is about a young man who can somehow power up stuff (was not one of my favorites - it was too vague, and I don't just mean the sex).
"The Legacy of Caliban" is a good story of a hero taken by his nemesis.
"Razed" is also told from the viewpoint of a villain, but a villain with a sense of humor and the ability to grow a 12 inch...
"Right Hand Man" is a confessional-type story told by a hero's manservant.
"Forget-Me-Not" doesn't have a superhero, though there is a guy in spandex going around having hot sex with guys, so who cares?
"Captain Velvet Down Under" is a retun of that hero and the fun he has with 3 local guides.
"Loving Calvin Panaro" is a sweet story of how a young man got together with his superhero lover.
"The Capture of Cloud Runner" is told from the viewpoint of his lover, Dag, and is everything you would expect from Jay Starr.
"Super Slider and the Warden of Baton Rouge" is another Jay Starr (and so is Master Mind, in case you forgot). This is a new superhero - I felt there was too much background and not enough hot'n'heavy in this story, but that's me.
"Leather Man" is a hot, sexy, slightly silly story about a superhero trying to foil a bank robbery.
"Hero Worship" is a hot and cute story about a guy hooking up with a chatroom buddy for role-playing sex.
All in all, a keeper.
