I’m one of the editors along with Rebecca McFarland Kyle
With a hearty mwaa haaa haaa and a swagger….we’re looking for villains. Dress them in black or tie dye or frilly pink
tulle, but these villains need to be seriously bad.
We are looking for tales of truly badass dark lords and ladies. We’re not talking about the guys who stand around
monologueing to let the hero win. We’re talking smart dark lords who don’t keep incompetent minions around. Comedy is
completely acceptable, as long as it doesn’t detract from the villain’s ability to be a total badass.
Genres include: Science fiction, Fantasy, Steampunk, Cyberpunk, Weird West, Romance, Alternate History
