The world lost a profoundly influential creative mind when Stan Lee passed away November 2018 at the age of 95. During his long career, Lee—in collaboration with other renowned comic creators such as Jack Kirby—developed iconic Marvel superheroes like Spider-Man, Black Panther, the X-Men, and many others.
One of Lee's last creative projects was A Trick of Light: Stan Lee's Alliances, his first novel intended for adults. The first book set in a brand-new superhero universe, A Trick of Light introduces Cameron, a young man who gains the ability to telepathically control technology after an accident while visiting the Great Lakes, and his hacker friend Nia. A must-read for Marvel fans, A Trick of Light is a piece of superhero history. And, as James Patterson himself says, “Leave it to Stan Lee to save his very best for last."
Together with Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, The Portalist is giving away copies of Lee's novel A Trick of Light and A Trick of Light-inspired enamel pin to twenty-five winners.

About the prizes:
A Trick of Light
From Stan Lee, the pop culture legend behind Marvel’s The Avengers™, Black Panther™, X-Men™, Spider-Man™, The Fantastic Four™, and Iron Man™, comes a major literary event featuring two heroic teenagers—one born with extraordinary gifts, one unwillingly transformed. Together they can change the world ... or put it in the destructive hands of a danger beyond imagination.
Set in Stan Lee’s Alliances Universe, co-created by Lee, Luke Lieberman, and Ryan Silbert, and along with Edgar Award–nominated co-writer Kat Rosenfield, Stan Lee delivers a novel packed with the pulse-pounding, breakneck adventure and the sheer exuberant invention that have defined his career as the creative mastermind behind Marvel’s spectacular universe.
“Leave it to Stan Lee to save his very best for last. A Trick of Light is as heartfelt and emotional as it is original and exciting. What a movie this one will make.”—James Patterson
“For lovers of Stan Lee this is nothing short of a publishing event! (And, honestly, who the hell doesn’t love Stan Lee?) Beguiling, cinematic, operatic, A Trick of Light is a bracing espresso first thing in the morning and the thrum of a familiar love deep at night.”—Gary Shteyngart, author of Absurdistan and Lake Success
