RKL: That sounds like a pretty good morning. Now, speaking about Gladstone's, it's a book about a school that trains the next generation of supervillain, where did you come up with this idea?
MAS: I've always been a fan of badguys, in films and comics, and wondered what Doctor Doom or Magneto did in their free time. I think part of it was an extension of that and then making a larger story about how a universe of villains interact. In real life, they'd all know each other and probably work together. The book started with the name Gladstone's School for World Conquerors and then I began to flesh it out with the title in mind.
