Who am I?

We are Doc Paradise, Super-Villain and amoral genius CEO of Paradise Labs. With our army of minions, we provide "Evil Overlord" analysis and ridiculous technology to Super-Heroes and Super-Villains alike.

I am also the person behind the persona of "Doc Paradise". I'm a mediator, writer-in-progress, and non-binary geek who works in engineering. I enjoy exploring issues of communication, relationships, conflict, mental health, and "what humans do". I own, and enjoy reading, a staggering number of books on self-help, psychology, conflict, and communication, and I have opinions. Lots of opinions.

[ Disclaimer: I am not a therapist, a medical doctor, or a professional reviewer. My opinions are my own.]

What is this blog?

This is where I'm compiling my "Evil Overlord" writings.

Book Reviews (self-help/psych/other) - I think the underlying the assumptions in “self-improvement” and “self-help” books should be unpacked. These reviews may or may not do that, but I will try to acknowledge both some of the potentially useful and potentially problematic aspects of the books I review. The “Evil Overlord Assessment” section specifically looks at some ways that a fictional “Evil Overlord” might use this book to harm or control others for the purpose of World Domination. The regularity of these posts will be determined by what the super-robot-mecha are doing and how much coffee I've had. (I've switched to decaf... the world may need saving.)

CleverManka.Net - I am writing guest posts for CleverManka.Net. These are more personal pieces and I will only be posting links to them here. Links to these posts will be intermittent and based on Manka's posting schedule.

Stories - These are stories from the fictional world of Paradise Labs. They are posted whenever I feel the urge to write fiction.

Communication Skills for Megalomaniac Dictators (CSfMD) - This is a fake self-help book that Doc Paradise uses to educate Paradise Labs' minions. I refer to it in some of my other writings. I'm using the CSfMD tag as a catch all for the topics I want to write about that are too general or long to be embedded in reviews. These will be posted whenever I damn-well-please.
