Kindle/Nook Deal: Grab “The Mad Scientist’s Guide to World Domination” Edited by John Joseph Adams for $1.99

Hey, eBook readers!

At the time of this writing, Amazon US and Barnes and Noble are listing the brand new John Joseph Adams anthology The Mad Scientist’s Guide to World Domination for only $1.99! And DRM-free!

Take a look at the stellar list of contributors and determine for yourself whether or not this is a great deal. (Hint: It is.)

Here’s the anthology description:

From Victor Frankenstein to Lex Luthor, from Dr. Moreau to Dr. Doom, readers have long been fascinated by insane plans for world domination and the madmen who devise them. Typically, we see these villains through the eyes of good guys. This anthology, however, explores the world of mad scientists and evil geniuses—from their own wonderfully twisted point of view.

An all-star roster of bestselling authors—including Diana Gabaldon, Daniel Wilson, Austin Grossman, Naomi Novik, and Seanan McGuire…twenty-two great storytellers all told—have produced a fabulous assortment of stories guaranteed to provide readers with hour after hour of high-octane entertainment born of the most megalomaniacal mayhem imaginable.

Everybody loves villains. They’re bad; they always stir the pot; they’re much more fun than the good guys, even if we want to see the good guys win. Their fiendish schemes, maniacal laughter, and limitless ambition are legendary, but what lies behind those crazy eyes and wicked grins? How—and why—do they commit these nefarious deeds? And why are they so set on taking over the world?

If you’ve ever asked yourself any of these questions, you’re in luck: It’s finally time for the madmen’s side of the story.

Note: Kindle books can be read on by downloading the Kindle software for computers and smartphones, or directly on a Kindle device.

Now word on how long this os good for, so grab it while you can!

(Note: I checked. The iTunes version is currently sitting at $9.99.)

  2. Says 9.12 to me…

  3. I snagged it right away too, thanks!

    I passed this on to the book club I belong to and was made aware by one of our international members that this appears to be a U.S. only deal. Or at least that is an assumption based on the country they are in not having it for this price (Germany)

  4. Is there a Smashwords, Kobo or direct buy/download link? Gumroad? Ganxy?

    Both B&N and Amazon are unacceptable. I use Linux and B&N won’t give me the time of day, even with cash in hand. Amazon will not let me download, cloud reader only, which is also a really inferior limitation.

    Since the publisher clearly understands that DRM is stupid, it would be great if the book was offered at a site where you could just buy and download without going through a proprietary app.
