New Anthology Sale: The Mad Scientist’s Guide to World Domination

From Victor Frankenstein to Lex Luthor, from Dr. Moreau to Dr. Doom, readers have long been fascinated by megalomaniacal plans for world domination and the madmen who come up with them. Typically, we see these villains through the eyes of superheroes (or other good guys) as they attempt to put an end to their evil ways. This anthology, however, will explore the world of mad scientists and evil geniuses–from their own point of view.

Evil geniuses are always so keen on telling captured heroes all their fiendish plans. Isn’t it about time someone gave them a platform such as this one to reach the masses with their messages of hope death and prosperity destruction?

Note for writers: I’m not sure yet if I’ll be able to have an open submission period for this anthology, given the limited space I have to work with (I had to get commitments from a lot of writers to sell the book), but if I do, I’ll announce that here. If I’m familiar with your work already, and you’re keen on this idea, feel free to query me about writing something. I’d really like to have an open reading period, but not sure it’s going to happen at this point; this is the best I can do for now. Watch this space for updates.
