Going Baddie

To paraphrase rapping wordsmith Nas, we chill by watching flicks where we can root for the villain. Sometimes the good guys are a little too squeaky-clean to be interesting. To our amusement, The Mad Scientist’s Guide to World Domination pulls together 22 tales of fictional evil-doers and revels in their twistedness.

Best selling authors including Austin Grossman, Naomi Novik, Seanan McGuire, Daniel Wilson, and Diana Gabaldon contributed hilarious short stories exploring the inner workings and foibles of the crazies set on ruling the world with an iron fist. Gabaldon and John Joseph Adams, editor of the resultant collection, read from their work and autograph copies for fans.
