Lou Anders' With Great Power

I have read three stories already from Lou Anders's forthcoming prose superhero anthology With Great Power (in addition to my own, of course), and I cannot wait to read the rest of the book.

Check out the TOC and maybe you can see why...
Introduction: The Golden Age by Lou Anders
"Cleansed and Set in Gold" by Matthew Sturges
"Where their Worm Dieth Not" by James Maxey
"Secret Identity" by Paul Cornell
"The Non-Event" by Mike Carey
"Avatar" by Mike Baron
"Message from the Bubblegum Factory" by Daryl Gregory
"Thug" by Gail Simone
"Vacuum Lad" by Stephen Baxter
"A Knight of Ghosts and Shadows" by Chris Roberson
"Head Cases" by Peter David & Kathleen David
"Downfall" by Joseph Mallozzi
"By My Works You Shall Know Me" by Mark Chadbourn
"Call Her Savage" by Marjorie M. Liu
"Tonight we fly" by Ian McDonald
"A to Z in the Ultimate Big Company Superhero Universe (Villains Too)" by Bill Willingham

Too bad Lou couldn't get any names (g). Just met Daryl Gregory at Readercon and told him how much I enjoyed PANDEMONIUM. He lives in State College, where my wife and I went to school, and we still have some close friends there. So he's practically family.
Pandemonium is one hell of a book. And Gregory's contribution to With Great Power kicks *all* kinds of ass.
You got Steven Baxter to do a superhero story? Awesome.

This is an exciting lineup (yourself included, natch)
Well, Lou *does* have powers and abilities far beyond those of mortal men...
