A Method to The Madness: A Guide To The Super Evil

It’s not time to panic… yet, but there are only three (3) months left to submit your article or essay to us for consideration. We tell you this because we would HATE to miss publishing your wisdom in the dark arts of Mad Science because you missed a silly little deadline.

But, that is exactly what will happen if you are late. Cause, we’ve got to be fair (yes, an odd concept for a villain, but honor among thieves and all that) to all those people who do meet the submission deadline.

Time flies when you are having fun, so STOP having fun and write something for us!

You have your orders. Good luck!

Tribal Knowledge

Tribal Knowledge

a 100 word story

Jeff Hite

“I don’t understand what you mean. What is tribal knowledge?”
“It is a simple concept. One tribe of people, say in the jungle, learns something, but does not share it with the other tribes.”
“Why would they not share the information.”
“It does not matter, the point is they don’t. So say a flood happens and that tribe is wiped out. That information is gone forever. That is why we log everything, so that if something happens we have a record.”
“I believe I understand.”
“I am telling you HAL,” Dave said “tribal knowledge will kill us all some day.”

Separate Volume

Separate Volume

a 100 word story

by Jeff Hite

“It is with a heavy heart and and pitiful spirit that I bring you the news today. They have decided to split our work into two volumes.” The crowd gathered in front of him began to murmur, he knew he had to get it under control or there would be chaos.
“Please, everyone settle down. We already have dividers within the group, we will just need to further subdivide. We have to keep the separate volumes untied as one. Though they will be divided we must not be. Day and night must not be divided, we will not be twilight.”

Count Dracula

“That is not fair.”
“What?”
“Look at this, we all got the same thing again.”
“What’s wrong with that? Do you think you should get more just because you are wearing a suit or something?”
“Well no, but all you guys do is yell trick or treat, they always ask me to do something. I don’t think that is fair, if they are going to ask me to do something I should at least get something extra.”
“What are you talking about I have not heard them asking you to do anything.”
“They always say count, Dracula. 1, 2 ,3.”

“Well sure it looks like her, that is the point of a portrait isn’t it?”
“I don’t know Jim, I just don’t know that this is a good idea.”
“To be honest Tom I don’t care if you think it is a good Idea or not. What I want to know is if it is a good likeness of her.”
“It is a good likeness alright, too good if you ask me. I mean really did you have to draw all the fangs?”
“Of course I did… Wait did her eyes just twitch? I think she is looking at you.”

A Hole in the Ground

A Hole in the Ground

A 100 word story

By Jeff Hite

“Tim you said this place was a hole in the wall, I didn’t really think you were serious. This place is a real hole.”
“Yeah, it is a bit, but man they serve the best fires here.”
“Excuse me miss.” A man in a apron said standing next to their table.
“Yes?”
“Well you said that this place was a hole in the wall. I am the owner and I take exception to that.”
“I didn’t mean insult you, I…”
“Since it is actually below ground, it is a hole in the ground. I would appreciate you getting it right.”
