Simon & Schuster’s annual BlogFest is happening right now! BlogFest is a huge group blogging project in which the same questions are answered by me and 39 other S&S authors. (Click here for the full list). Today’s question is, “If you could have any superpower, what would it be?”
Not every author answers every question, but there are usually three or more of us for each one. It’s been cool to see different writers respond to the same stimulus.

Here’s a (rather long) movie showing Lrry in motion:
