1942: Donovan’s Brain by Curt Siodmak

August 19, 2008

A guy named Donovan’s brain is kept alive in a jar post-mortem, where it develops the ability to control the minds of others. Basically, it’s 160 pages of hot brain-on-brain action. It would’ve been really easy to overthink the title of this book and default to something less direct. Like Dark Side Of The Mind. Or Lobe Story. Or Hungry, Hungry Hippocampus. But in the end, the best name for a book about a guy named Donovan’s brain is Donovan’s Brain. I recommend you read Donovan’s Brain.

On a scale of famous manipulative brains ranging from Krang to Brainiac, this book is: the Big Brain.

What are we going to do tonight, brain?
