ALL THOSE EXPLOSIONS WERE SOMEONE ELSE’S FAULT by James Alan Gardner
“Science spectacularly collides with superhero tales and magic to form the background of Gardner’s often hilarious exploration of friendship, stereotypes, and gender identity. The themes of identity and self-discovery are strong but not overwhelming, and Gardner elevates this enjoyable urban fantasy with an appealing cast and well-crafted prose.” — Publishers Weekly readmoreremove
