Twenty four irresistibly tempting tales of sinful reading pleasure

Talk of the Devil-the old saying goes-and he is sure to appear Indeed, here for your entertainment is Lucifer, Satan, Beelzebub, Old Nick, the Lord of the Flies, these are but five of the many names and titles that mankind has bestowed upon the Devil, the Prince of Evil, the dark figure who stands farthest away from the shining moral example of Godhead. Predictably, such a powerful figure, deeply embedded in the psyche of many cultures, has had an abiding fascination for writers since the earliest days of the written word and, inevitably, he has also become an essential component of folk tales in many countries. It is well noted that the characteristics of a hero are the same the world over, but if you need a really interesting personality then the villain can deliver satisfaction every time This Leonaur book is a unique and special collection of classic short stories featuring the Devil himself, by a dazzling array of renowned exponents of penmanship including Irving, Gogol, Thackeray, Poe, Baudelaire, Hawthorne and many others. At its heart is a previously published collection entitled 'Devil Stories' edited by Maximilian Rudwin. However, this Leonaur edition benefits from the addition of five more tales of dark temptation and dastardly deeds for your enjoyment. Available in soft cover and hardcover with dust jacket.
