Dispensing Justice is a fun fast-moving science fiction adventure YA novel. Michael Gurick's coming of age story begins a with the death of his super-hero father, The Dispenser.

The author does a good job capturing the voice of classic juvenile adventure stories. And he's pretty funny too (especially at the beginning of the novel).

My first memories are of watching the Lone Ranger and JFK's funeral on TV. I discovered Heinlein in my middle school library, and have been avidly consuming SF and fantasy, sometimes to the detriment of my grades and social life, since then. I graduated from East Lansing High School, Michigan, in 1977, but my taste in music didn't crystallize until 1985 when I found myself in Los Angeles, ...more
