*Plop faints!* At Last! A very unique story line!
How to Succeed in Evil (Kindle Edition) by Patrick E. McLean
How to Succeed in Evil is the story of Edwin Windsor, Evil Efficiency Consultant. He tries to help super villains be more villainous. Or at least more profitable and sensible about the business side of Evil.
Along with his very proper and English secretary Agnes and his hench-lawyer Topper, he struggles to make the world of super powered people make sense.
But this is very difficult because, while Edwin’s advice is excellent, all of his clients are too ego maniacal to listen.
There is, it must be said, a bit of comedy in this work.
Edwin struggles with a cast of characters including, Dr. Loeb, a trust fund child who desperately wants to be an Evil Genius, but has none of the talent.
Dr. Loeb’s hideous mother, Iphagenia – who’s evil scheme is to foment a second Southern Rebellion, beginning with Lower Alabama.
And the Cromogoldon, a brute with forehead villainous low and quite possibly the strongest creature on the planet.
Inevitably, Edwin’s unique clientele lead him into direct conflict with the greatest super hero of them all, Excelsior. And so, the quiet, restrained intellectual is pitted against heroic force.
