How to Become a Henchman
by J Bennett
It’s time to root for the henchman!
Welcome to Big Little City, a semi-reality town where the bank gets robbed at least once a week, and the superheroes spend more time showboating for the cameras than helping the citizens.
Alice just needs to keep her head down, earn her college degree, and then she’ll be able to escape this crazy place. Too bad a super scary villain just blew up the restaurant where she works and her paycheck along with it.
As luck would have it, one of the town’s most famous villains is holding henchmen auditions. The gig would earn Alice the money she needs; all she has to do is play the “Fame Game” she despises.
Oh, and she has to beat out the other cunning and dangerous competitors who might just kill for the limited henchmen spots.
Is Alice willing to risk life, limb, and her integrity to land the role of a lifetime?
