New Anthology

Hello all you crazy Mad Scientists and your writer alter egos. I want to take a moment of your time and let you know that the editors of this book A Method To The Madness: A Guide To the Super Evil, are putting together another anthology.

This one will not be Mad Scientist related but you might still find it interesting.

This one has a working title of, “There’s A Magic Portal Under My Sink: And other stories of Places you Probably Don’t Want to Go.” (And you thought the last book had a long title.)

If you would like to learn more about it or to maybe even submit a story please check out the website at http://portalundermysink.wordpress.com/

The Evil Art Of Getting Back to The Basics

sheepOne of the Topics that we only partially covered in A Method To the Madness: A Guide To the Super Evil is that of starting over again when you fail, get defeated decide to take a different route, want to, can be therapeutic. Not to mention the lessons that can be learned.

I recently suffered set back with some of my minions decided to take stock in my situation in regards to those in my employ and get back to some basics. There is nothing like getting back to the very basics of basics to remind you of how it is done.

So Minions / henchmen / Sheep.

Yes, that is right, Sheep. You know some times you really have to get back to basics. I am not saying that everyone should always go this far but some times you need to go back to the beginning.

I am not saying that our undersea lab sprung a major leak do to um outside pressure and that on the same day out orbital space platform lost power because someone ripped the solar panels off, and who knew that the insurance companies don’t cover things like that on your home owners insurance, and that we were forced to return to our pedestrian home like everyone else and plant a garden and raise sheep as part of a farming collective to keep costs down. I am not saying any of those things. What I am saying is that herding sheep can be a good way to remind yourself of the basics of dealing with minions.

Some times you need to give them a good swat to get them to go where you want, some times you need a watch dog or a sheep dog to help keep them in line, and sometimes you need to just release a wolf into the fold and just let him have at the stupid sheep… I mean some times you need to stop shearing one of them and have lamb chops for dinner.

Sometimes you just need to sit down and take stock of where you are. You need listen to the advice of others. You need to read a good book like, Oh I don’t know, A Method To the Madness: A Guide To The Super Evil to figure out where you went wrong.

Enough with the advice, I have sheep to herd.
