One of the most entertaining and even possibly inspiring collection of short stories I've ever read. Egalitarian, absorbing, and every bit worthy of the title "mad".

Several stories on the various takes on the "mad scientist". All unique and worth a look.

An entertaining collection of original stories.

This anthology is comprised of various tales, written in different styles, and not all feature mad scientists in the traditional sense. Often witty, the authors tend to cleverly play with the mad scientist stereotypes; these short stories provide a look at the villains, not through the lens of the heroes they're attached to, but through their own perspectives. As this is the case, we get to hear of the "righteousness" of their work, and their motives. Quite a few stories feature a woman as the mad scientist, and end up being some of the best tales told. Still, the first story was the best due to its humourous, and well thought out monologue.
