Great post, Mary Anna.
It would be fun to see a list of favorite villains. I wonder if soft-spoken, brain-eating Hannibal Lector would top the list?

Mary Anna

Hmmm...I have a soft spot for Darth Vader. I'm also to Captain Kirk's nemesis, Khan.

Apparently, I prefer villains with gorgeous voices who are not averse to chewing the scenery now and then.


I agree that a human side is important for a villain. I'm not going to be interested in reading an entire book about someone if they have no redeeming qualities.
And Penny, Hannibal Lector is an excellent villain.

How can you turn your back on a character named Babykiller? Nice!!!!

Thanks for the great post Mary Anna!


The Wicked Witch of the West will always hold a little piece of me in terror (the piece that's still about 6 years old): "I'll get you my pretty!"

And your little dog, too!
