This Villain You Must Create

Short Story #4. This Villain You Must Create by Carlie St. George
Publisher: Lightspeed Magazine Issue: July 2013

How I Found It:

I followed a link from this post on SF Signal.


Granite loses his archnemesis and finds that other villains lack panache. When a similarly bereaved supervillain visits his support group, he takes her up on her unnatural offer. St. George's diction is deceptively simple and this literary-infused SF short tale serves up quite a Jamesian twist.

Favorite Quotes:

"'Fire and Ice' is an uninspired poem, cited primarily in self-indulgent fanfiction."

"'Nothing Gold Can Stay' is my favorite and yes, I've written Outsiders fanfiction. Ha!"
