This is a fun collection of stories that will appeal most to readers who grinned their way through the Evil Overlord List and its brethren. Overall, the stories have a wry sense of humor and it's clear that the authors had fun examining, deconstructing, or reveling in the tropes associated with "evil overlords" in popular fiction. I spent much of the book grinning, and even let out a maniacal cackle now and then, but the stories aren't all humor. Some take a serious look at the implications of evil and/or overlords, and may offer food for thought. Although not all of the stories were home runs for me, I heartily recommend this collection to readers with a good (and slightly twisted) sense of humor, as well as to anybody who has found themselves relishing the fun of a strong villain.
