Cardboard Heroes speaks to various aspects of the imagination. Within these pages not only lie tales of an apocalyptic garage sale, an amnesiac with blood on his shoes, and a thief that learns about honor, but also works that wrestle with morality and question societal compliance.
Award-winning author JC Crumpton has collected some of his most-fascinating published fiction and poetry along with new works. Cardboard Heroes contains stories that introduce his science-fiction Lonford Universe as well as the world of faded magic and unremembered history Erad Riliath.
His poetry is accessible, allowing the reader to get lost in the clarity and economy of words to build scenes and vignettes of the lost and struggling. His short fiction takes readers to new and exciting worlds where characters explore places we haven’t since childhood. Cardboard Heroes proves a capable introduction to readers new to the author and a welcome return to those familiar with his work. (190 pages)
