Emperor Mollusk.

Intergalactic Menace. Destroyer of Worlds. Conqueror of Other Worlds. Mad Genius. Ex-Warlord of Earth.

Not bad for a guy without a spine.

But what's a villain to do after he's done . . . everything. With no new ambitions, he's happy to pitch in and solve the energy crisis or repel alien invaders should the need arise, but if he had his way, he'd prefer to be left alone to explore the boundaries of dangerous science. Just as a hobby, of course.

Retirement isn't easy though. If the boredom doesn't get him, there's always the Venusians. Or the Saturnites. Or the Mercurials. Or . . . well, you get the idea. If that wasn't bad enough, there's also the assassins of a legendary death cult and an up-and-coming megalomaniac (as brilliant as he is bodiless) who have marked Emperor for their own nefarious purposes. But Mollusk isn't about to let the Earth slip out of his own tentacles and into the less capable clutches of another. So it's time to dust off the old death ray and come out of retirement. Except this time, he's not out to rule the world. He's out to save it from the peril of THE SINISTER BRAIN!

It was very amusing. If you love sci-fi you'll love this book!

A fun, silly sci-fi adventure that's a distant cousin to Douglas Adams' Hitchhiker series. If you're in the mood for a campy diversion of the classic space opera variety, then Emperor Mollusk versus The Sinister Brain may be just the book for you.

I a ma fan of pretty much all of A Lee Martinez's work in general.

Having said that, this book wasn't up to par with some of his earlier books.

It had some good moments, but overall, I think he tried a little too hard to make it work.

I love the way this book was written. I could see the emperor calmly having discussions with the bad guys as Zala his side kick is in the back ground with all sorts of chaos going on as she battles a monster of one sort or another.
I especially got a kick out of the egos.

This was a very entertaining and quick read.
