Publisher's Summary

What is a Sub-Bohemian? A Sub-Bohemian is one who lives an unconventional lifestyle. He has artistic interests which drive his unconventionality. But, in our Superhero's case, his unconventionality is also driven by the necessity to avoid being crushed.

Sub-Bohemian's are the smallest people in the world. Well, actually there is only one Sub-Bohemian, our Superhero. So he is the smallest person in the world. "Oh," you think, "he's a midget". No, he's smaller than a midget. "A Leprechaun, then?" No, even smaller. "A Trusvariankoponomian - the smallest of the wee people?" No, he's even tinier than that.

The Sub-Bohemian is no taller than a small ant, but he's even stronger. "Oh, like "Up and at-em, Atom Ant!"?" No, he's not an ant. And he's even stronger.

The Sub-Bohemian has no idea why he's so strong - other than that it keeps him alive. He has no purpose in life - other than to survive. He has no idea why there are no other Sub-Bohemians or how he came into being, since he's the only one. As such, he's the perfect candidate to become our Superhero. I suppose I should give the Sub-Bohemian a name, especially since he is our Superhero. His Super-title will be "The Sub-Bohemian".

For a name, let's use Paul. What's wrong with Paul? Not Bohemian enough you say - how would you know? What about John? There you go with that look again. Lute? Closer, but not close enough? OK, we'll call him Pavlik-Pavlik - Pavlik means Small in Bohemian, so Pavlik-Pavlik means Small-Small or Very-Small.
