Summary (IBList user synopsis):

Here's an all-original anthology about those characters we love to hate, those dastardly devils - the villains. These are the men and women who give heroes their claim to fame, who, in the depths of their evil and the totality of their defeat, make the champions of goodness shine. But shouldn't even a villain have a chance to win once in a while? After all, why take on the job if you know you'll always lose?

So here is the book that gives villains their day, in fourteen original stories where evil actually wins out. From the chronicle of a queen who got where she is by eliminating all the competition before anyone could even think of competing...to a tale featuring one of the most famous villains in literature...to a poignant recounting of why evil must be evil, villains of all shapes, ideologies, and wickedness are finally given their due in tales that may actually have you cheering for the bad guys.
