    "The Mind Of Evil", for me, is the ultimate "how to enjoy something that's problematic" case – probably second only to Talons.

    It's a story I really, really like – it's pacy and full of intrigue. I love cold war history and find the '70s preoccupation with mind control really fascinating.

    It also depicts mental illness in a pretty offensive way, and the whole plot hinges on there being only one Chinese girl in England. So that's kind of… umm.

    However, I always read Senator Alcott's fear of "the Chinese dragon" as more of a "typical American politician, seeing commies everywhere" kind of thing, rather than an implicit suggestion that we were supposed to agree with him.
