Dr. Dee Ceitful Answers the Evil Questions

aMttM-aGttSE_finalWe got this message on, you guessed it, a laser beam with a carrier wave build. It took us about 100 minions to figure out what it was, because they kept getting so close that getting fried, but it was a interesting way to get the message to us. Thanks Dr. Dee Ceitful.

Because we are good guys we have translated it from the laser beam’s carrier wave for you.

Questions for the Evil Super Villain

aMttM-aGttSE_finalThe Evil League has been busy lately, what with the capture of one of the editors and thwarting the plan’s of that Upstart Mik Murdoch and his so called hero friends. Luckily they have Alex The Evil 486 Beowulf Cluster that can deal with a lot of it.

Along with all of that going on, they have requested that we ask you, the super Villain Authors to answer a few questions about yourself so that we can let the public (who apparently want to know) a little more about you, before the book comes out.

With that in mind, we present the following video with the questions.

Just a quick Correction. The video says the release date is July 1 2013, it is actually June 1 2013. I am sure Mike and I will pay for that mistake, but really that is great news. That means pre-release copies will Most likely be available for Balticon.

I have been told that not having these questions anywhere but in the video was just a little too evil, so here are the interview questions. But really watch the video it is much more fun than reading the questions.

Remember to keep your answers clean as there are kids in the audience.

      1. When you go out for dinner and you order filet mignon how do you pronounce the second word. Does it sound French or could you be talking about a nicely cooked slice of one of your Henchmen?
      2. If you could have an evil lair any where in the world, without worrying about those pesky super heroes, where would it be and why?
      3. When building the “death traps” around your home, do you want to do be actual Death traps or just Wow that really really hurts a lot traps? Why?
      4. As an evil mad scientist / ruler of… What is your biggest fear? Does it involve the laser beam wearing shark in your “fish tank?”
      5. What is your favorite way to torture/torment your nemesis when you capture him/her?
      6. What are the defining characteristics you look for in a minion?
      7. How did you originally get into Evil Science? (for those who don’t mention it in their article)
      8. Do you consider yourself to be a Super villain, Mad Scientist or something else and why?
      9. What is your favorite mode of transportation?
      10. Coke or Pepsi?
      11 What is your favorite evil application or product?

And It is Off To the Publisher

aMttM-aGttSE_finalJust a quick update to let you know that Mike, Alex (yes, I include Alex in this because if I don’t you don’t want to know what might happen) and I have been working very hard to get the final edits into the hands of our publisher. And it is finally done.

But the work is not done yet.

Evil Pro tip:
The work is never done for the Evil Overlord / Mad Scientist / Evil Super Villain / whatever.

We will be conducting interviews with the authors (and or their evil alter egos ) and posting them around the various evil networks and maybe, if you are lucky on some of the only questionable public networks.

If you have questions for our super villains drop us a line, maybe you will get an answer before we feed you to our laser wielding sharks.

We will also be posting various opportunities for you to meet and greet some of the Mad Scientist, and maybe, if you are lucky enough to survive the encounter, get a book signed.

jhite (1) have an evil day

How the Mad Scientist Guide Idea Came into Being

It all began on a bright sunny Twitter day.

JAHite and I (mplested) were Tweeting back and forth being silly, when we somehow got onto the subject of taking over the world. For those of you who don’t know, JAHite and I are each other alter-ego’s on Twitter. We were in agreement that we could, in fact, use our 486-Beowolf cluster to accomplish said world-domination, but only if the actions didn’t happen to contradict our respective wive’s evening plans.

That got me thinking that there must be a set of rules for the would-be world dominator. I liked the idea so much I proposed that we should create said book with the help of all you other mad scientists, evil doctors and other super-villains.

That was the beginning. We continued to talk and plot (as a good mad scientist would) and now, we have a plan for, if not for world domination, at least to bring a book that will help all the next generations of dominators to draw inspiration from.

Thanks for coming by and please, send us your stories and how-to articles. Maybe you can help to train that new generation of villain.
