Five-star review of Challenge Accepted – a charity anthology compiled and edited by Stephanie Barr
This anthology to benefit Special Olympics contains seventeen science fiction and fantasy short stories in which disabled main characters don’t allow their disabilities to prevent them from being heroes. All of the stories, including I hope my own, are well-written, entertaining and diverse. Several are even excellent. The people in them rise above. Their disabilities don’t define them. They don’t need rescuing but instead, save the day. Many kinds of disabilities are represented including loss of a limb, loss of sight, loss of hearing, even mental disabilities.
