Special People by Tim Sevenhuysen

Special people have special problems.

Special People is a fiction project about people with special and unusual powers and abilities. But don’t call them superheroes! The stories are action-oriented and humourous, but definitely not what you’d expect from your average “superhero fiction.” From a human cell phone to a man who can conjure bacon out of thin air, these are unique, interesting characters, special . . .
