Review of "Phone Booth" by Holli Mintzer
"Phone Booth" by Holli Mintzer was posted in Daily Science Fiction on October 19, 2012. In a world filled with caped superheroes, a man and a woman fall in love. In her notes, the author reveals that she wanted to write a superhero story for adults that was not hypersexed. She achieved her goal, I think, but I am not sure it was a worthy one. Well written and paced, but works better as a romance than a spec fic story. The surprise twist was predictable, but the MC's reaction to it was not. 6 out of 7 rocket-dragons.
