Carl’s a Puerto Rican engineering student struggling to hide his Multiple Sclerosis so he can keep working to earn enough to put himself through school. As his disease progresses, that becomes impossible–but when he invents a solution to his weakness, he soon discovers he’s not the only person who could use it.
Hierro, by me, is one of the short stories in the upcoming superhero anthology by The Crossover Alliance, a small publisher committed to marrying spirituality with dark fiction. They’re tired of weak “inspirational” fiction that avoids cursing and hardcore topics in the name of God–they want to deal with the real world and its real problems, while still putting unabashed faith front and center. To see reviews, head to the book’s Amazon page, or see the Tangent online review. To read an article about multiple sclerosis in which I’m quoted, visit Medical News Today.
