Love the name! You might also say that all you need to be S.O.L. (shit-out-of-luck) in the Sons of Literacy is... a book? : P ; )

'Twas the day before Christmas, 
some assembly required
and I knew I'd have to put this shit together 
before I retired 
So I stepped to the garage, hammer in hand
and resolved to screw this thing up like a Man

Bash away, Bash away, Bash Away all.

Fantastic piece. Some really good points here. This understanding of heroes is why the How to Succeed in Evil series works well...

Tomorrow is the Winter Solstice, the Darkest Day of the Year. In a story that's not the end. It's the beginning of Act III.

This is why you don't skimp on the editorial process on your magazine.
