Scotty is a very skilled analyst when it comes to things like this. That's why I respect his critiques to the highest degree. I'll be sure to be careful when writing future works.

I think I'm going to do a sort of "animated" version of this guide with me narrating and post it on youtube.

if you do so then make sure in the sci-fi section you put in Slaughterhouse V, the best Sci-Fi book ever done ((until the last fucking 50 pages... *grumbles*))

There's like a giant list of these on Wikipedia. Just search for 'Evil Overlord List' and go to the second Notes link.

I'm good at reviewing fantasy in general, but science fiction is my forte. Drop me a PM and I'll get to reviewing as soon as I can. Don't get discouraged if I don't respond immediatley.

Cool.


You know, I may do a live-action version of this guide on my show. Post it on youtube. It'd be fun.
