    And he alone remembers the reason he came to love them so.

    Summary

    A mysterious explosion. An intrepid reporter who asks too many questions. A bite from a small, seemingly innocuous garter snake. You know the drill.

    But Anthony J. Crowley soon finds out that being a superhero isn’t all it’s cracked up to be. Sure, there are benefits: being able to slither up the sides of buildings, doing really weird things with his tongue, the occasional lucrative stock tip from a grateful rescuee, and gloating over the fact that a simple pair of sunglasses is an apparently impenetrable disguise. On the other hand, there’s the sheer indignity of spandex, a succession of increasingly terrible monikers, and the fact that he keeps making a fool of himself in front of the love of his life, who, for some reason, seems to keep getting kidnapped. And to add insult to injury, said love of his life might just be in love with his alter ego.

    It isn’t easy being The Serpent.

    Summary

    Between them, they were perhaps the best known living women in print, read by millions across the nation every day. And yet neither had ever been offered a private office.

    Their rivalry was famous. Occasionally their adjacent columns subtly sniped at one another -- except for when the sniping was not so subtle.

    Their most cutting exchange was so widely known that it was parodied in skits on variety television for years: "Why, that prudish, pigeon-toed, kitchenbound fuddy-duddy wouldn't know a good time if it bit her in the bustier!" Toni Crowley had scoffed to a barkeep who turned out to be an undercover tabloid reporter.

    "Well, one could attend on one’s own, but then one wouldn't want to be confused with a certain notoriously noxious, tragically lonely, careerist gossipy tramp," Maisie Rae Fell had said in honeyed tones a few days later, offering live on-air advice during a radio special.

    The editors and the advertisers loved the drama.

    Toni and Maisie Rae, sharing their second bottle of wine in a dark hotel bar after work, did not.

    Summary

    Shit, shit, shit, shit, shi-

    The old beige door slams into the beige wall beside it, then slams back on to a startled-looking beige-ish angel and back, a little weaker this time, into the wall again. The angel looks from the unusually violent door into the room, where he very quickly locates the source of the commotion that had him commit the indignity of running up the stairs from the bookshop.

    "Crowley! What on earth are you doing?"

    It's a good question. No easy answer, unfortunately.
