My story about a superhero named Bernie has been published in Galaxy’s Edge, edited by Mike Resnick.
Here’s the opening to “No Place for a Hero”:
Bernard Kowalski destroyed the Verrazano Bridge during the Friday rush.
But there are three important things to keep in mind: It was unintentional, no one died, and he caught the bank robbers he was chasing. It was a classic superhero feat. They should have given him a ticker-tape parade.
Instead he got thirty years in prison.
