Summary
"With the razor-sharp satire that earned him rave reviews for Big Egos and Lucky Bastard, among others, S.G. Browne delivers another irresistible read, about an unlikely band of heroes who use their medical complications to gain fame, confront villains, and bring their own unique brand of justice to New York City. Lloyd Prescott is a professional guinea pig. After nearly a year on unemployment, Lloyd discovered he could make money volunteering for Phase One pharmaceutical drug clinical trials, where drugs are tested for safety by giving them to subjects and studying the side effects. Every month, Lloyd meets up with a group of other guinea pigs to share information on their clinical trials, but soon they learn they're getting a lot more than they bargained for... Convulsions. Memory loss. Hallucinations. Drowsiness. Vomiting. Sudden weight gain. These and other side effects affect them all--but rather than simply suffer the consequences, the guinea pigs find they're able to project these side effects onto others. And once they realize this, there's no end to the ruckus they'll cause using their powers for good...or ill. In a winning combination of pitch-perfect humor and biting social commentary, S.G. Browne proves with Less than Hero that he is still "one of America's very best writers" (Jonathan Maberry)"--
