So-- you've lived for years among mere mortals, biding your time until the right moment comes to reveal your evil genius to the world. There-- you've said it-- your evil genius! It's been said of so many men and women through the years that it seems cliché now, but in your case it's undeniably, indisputably true-- you are an EVIL GENIUS!
So, some might ask, if you're such an evil brainiac, why haven't you stepped into the evil limelight yet? The answer, of course, is evil gadgets-- you've already got a cool costume your evil Mom sewed for you, but your evil Dad is a fumble-fingered klutz who's never been able to build cool evil gadgets for you. Well, Your Awful Evilness, your wait is finally over, and you can thank the New York publishing house, McGraw-Hill. It's put together a series of books designed with you, the evil genius in need of cool evil gadgets, in mind.
Titles in the series include:
Iannini, Bob. Electronic Gadgets for the Evil Genius (2004).
Cutcher, Dave. Electronic Circuits for the Evil Genius (2005).
Predko, Michael. 123 PIC Microcontroller Experiments for the Evil Genius (2005).
Harper, Gavin D. J. 50 Awesome Auto Projects for the Evil Genius (2006).
Iannini, Bob. More Electronic Gadgets for the Evil Genius (2006).
There are enough evil projects here to keep you in the evil workshop for at least a month of Sundays (you're an evil genius-- of course you can work on the Sabbath!). Time to give the Joker and Lex Luthor a run for their money, don't you think?
