KIRKUS REVIEW

The conception of the devil is a grand one and those stories which really comprehend his malevolent potency tend, themselves, to achieve stature. Basil Davenport, who has edited many adult anthologies, seeks, in this one, to present the best which has been written about the worst of creatures. In these twenty-five stories, Satan appears in multifarious guises, and is scrutinized by as divergent writers as Max Beerbohm, Lord Dunsany, de Maupassant and Bruce Elliot, but wherever and in whatever form he presents himself, he is consistently intriguing, captivatingly diabolical.
