PRAISE FOR CHARLES YU
"'Class Three Superhero' transcends what might have been a merely clever premise to speak to us about ambition, envy and the moral dilemmas that our own worst natures force on us. I admire it very much."--Jean Thompson, National Book Award Finalist
"Ambitious . . . funny and inventive."
"Rich with humor, invention, and humanity . . . Yu emerges as a first-class talent. A."
"Audacious . . . Smart, engaging and often deadpan funny."
"Reminds one of Kafka, if Kafka had had a geekish passion for science fiction and TV . . . hilarious."
"[Yu] show[s] that the short story is not only alive but being reinvigorated in excitingly diverse ways."
