Devil's Night

Tonight is Devil's Night, so it's only appropriate we talk about villains today.

Who's your favorite fictional villain?  Why?

JB: Would it be terrible to say that my favorite fictional villain is one of my own? I've got Ivan Vogler rolling around in my head all the time and I'm a bit obsessed with him.

But seriously, I love a good villain and can't choose among my favorites, but they include, but aren't limited to: Moriarty, Voldemort, The Deaf Man (from the 87th Precinct books), Annie Wilkes,  and  Dolores Umbridge

B.E.:I'm with JB.  My favorite villains are my own creations - maybe because I know them so well. I hope someday to share them all with you.

Of the ones created by others, I enjoy hating The Surgeon (created by Tess Gerritsen) and The Player (from Debra Webb's Faces of Evil series).  Allison Brennan makes some really awesome villains that are really easy to hate.  Of course, there's Dolores Umbridge - the most hated women in literature, I think.  And Cruella deVil.  Voldemort is a brilliant baddie.  Oh, and I almost forgot - Akasha from Anne Rice's Queen of the Damned.  So very vicious.  Of course, there are more.  The best books all have someone to hate.

For the love of villains! Who it must be said are SO much fun to write. The Capitol as a whole from The Hunger Games. Terrifying for its herd mentality. Voldemort. Moriarty. And this is film, but Heath Ledger's Joker is one of my all time favorite portrayals of villainy.
