Superheroes of Lit

I'M ALWAYS SURPRISED at what happens when a daring campaign is begun-- at who does or does not step up. The Petition to PEN--

--has already produced some surprising results. A small but mighty group!

Ten years ago when I was planning the first stage of literary rebellion, I was looking for literary superheroes.

What defines a superhero?

Special powers, of course. An eagerness to step to the forefront. Belief in the right and just. Most of all, uncompromising fearlessness.

Will other superheroes add themselves to the roll of honor? Stay tuned.
