REVIEW: Locus Calls Mad Scientist’s Guide “[an] anthology to recommend.”

“[An] anthology to recommend. … It is perhaps the nature of such a book, featuring stories told from the point-of-view of mad scientists, to show a tropism towards snarky, not quite serious, but quite enjoyable tales of villains justifying themselves.”

Horton goes on to single out Heather Lindsley’s “The Angel of Death Has a Business Plan” as the best of the snarky, not quite serious stories, and also name-checks Diana Gabaldon’s “The Space Between” and Jeffrey Ford’s “The Pittsburgh Technology” as standout stories of a more serious bent.
