: New: Book Report: Worm

Do I call it a "Book" report if it doesn't exist in book-ish form? Oh sure why not. Worm is a novel-length story posted online. It's about superheroes. What if there were thousands of superheroes in the world? But nobody's born with superpowers—instead, anyone with latent powers gains those powers only after they've gone through some trauma. Thus, nobody's born knowing how to use their powers; instead, they grow up thinking of un-powered life as normal. In this world, it's not enough to have superpowers—to make a difference, you also need to get past the mental blocks against using those powers. Unfortunately, this means that some of the most powerful people are pretty ruthless. It's a darned bleak story.
