Andy Briggs’ HERO.COM in top 100 UKYA books ever

HERO.COM #1 RISE OF THE HEROES - UK ppbk, OUP [front].jpg

HERO.COM is featured in the top 100 UKYA books alongside other top names such as JK Rowling and Phillip Pullman.

The HERO.COM series, published in tandem with its sinister opposite, the VILLAIN. NET series, updated the superhero genre.

As a set of young-teen action stories for the Playstation generation, the two series stand-alone as much as they are direct companion pieces interweaving characters and plot threads.

UKYA is a showcase for the best teen fiction set in the UK. The website aims to promote books set in the UK for the benefit of readers across the world.  It includes a handy list of British slang and the ability to search for a book by location, from the highlands of Scotland to the Cornish coast.

The HERO.COM series was first published in the UK by OUP and has been sold in eight territories.
