Unlike Wodehouse or Monty Python, this book is a first-person account of a famous poet who accidentally sells his wife to the devil. Then he hires a group of adventurers to rescue her. trap doors, duels, anarchist-fearing bobbies, the social pressure of not knowing enough about art history, and the poisonous wit of Lionel’s poetical archenemy are all things that happen to him and his friends. PG Wodehouse and Hergé’s Tintin adventures come to mind when you read Forrest Leo’s first book, The Gentleman, which is a giddy farce that is fresh, action-packed, and very, very funny.

After I finished The Gentleman, Amanda asked me to do this assignment. It felt like a good coincidence, because I had just finished reading the book. I don’t know if it’s a good thing to feel lucky when it comes to Daddy Satan, but I do know that he is in a lot of good books. Old movies everyone knows, like Rosemary’s Baby, The Devil and Daniel Webster, The Exorcist, Good Omens, and so on are also there. But I decided to go with mostly recent books that aren’t Damned or Horns in the hope that you might find a few new books to read. Aren’t I a good person? Isn’t the Devil an angel? All of this makes sense now.

Heaven and Hell by Kristen Ashley

To get to hell, Kia did something when she was young. Things aren’t very interesting until her celebrity crush, Sampson Cooper, shows up. That’s not how Kia thought of him. How did he get to hell? When Sam tells Kia that she can get to heaven, should she believe him? Even if the alternative is eternal hell. A fun look at good and bad.

The Master and Margarita by Mikhail Bulgakov

Okay, this isn’t new, but this book is so good that I had to talk about it. M&M, one of the best Soviet satires, is about Satan coming to the Soviet Union. He’s not even the most interesting part! He has a lot more interesting people around him, like “the mischievous, gun-happy, fast-talking black cat Behemoth.” It doesn’t matter if this isn’t one of the best books ever written: “Talking cat” had me at that.

The Weirdness by Jeremy Bushnell

If you’re Billy Ridgeway, you might be in a rut. You might be doing the same things over and over again. Satan shows up on your couch. Billy’s soul isn’t what he wants. He wants his help saving the world, not the other way around. Honest. To get rid of him, forces are working to get rid of the planet. Satan is also living on this planet! Kinda. Bill: But should he really believe in the devil? That’s true, but Billy doesn’t have much going on right now, so he could go. This book is a lot of fun and is very funny. Oh my stars and garters, that cover!

I, Lucifer by Glen David Duncan

I, Lucifer by Glen David Duncan

To get ready to write about werewolves, Duncan had to deal with the devil. This one is about the hooved one. Satan has just been told that he can come back to Heaven if he spends one lifetime on Earth as a good person. This should be a quick adventure for Lucifer to learn about what it means to be human. He thinks it will be easy, but it turns into a long lesson for him. It’s very fun.

Silver on the Road by Laura Anne Gilman

When Isobel was 16, she got a job at a store. Work for the Devil, but at least you get paid. Isobel is now working for him as his right-hand woman in charge of his employees in his southwest territories. She has to deal with the wild terrain and her dangerous boss. This book is AMAZING, and it’s the first in a set of two. Because the second one comes out in January 2017.

Me and the Devil Blues 1: The Unreal Life of Robert Johnson by Akira Hiramoto

Manga! The story is about a great blues guitarist! Isn’t that cool? At midnight on a crossroads in Mississippi, Robert Johnson is said to have met the Devil. In exchange for his guitar skills, he is said to have traded his soul. They make selling your soul look like a good deal.

Johannes Cabal the Necromancer by Jonathan L. Howard

I love this series so much! Scientist: This is the first of four books about a man who gave up his soul to the Devil in exchange for necromancy powers. Now, he wants it back. If Johannes gets 100 people to give their souls to Satan, Satan will let him do it. Johannes agrees to the deal, so he gets together a group of undead to help him with this task and starts to drive. A Faustian adventure that’s a little weird and a lot of fun!

The Devil in Silver by Victor LaValle

The Devil in Silver by Victor LaValle

When Pepper moves into Hyde Hospital’s psychiatric ward, she’ll be living in a place that doesn’t have a lot of money or good staff. But, it looks like Satan is also a resident there, which makes it look like Hell. He must fight for his life and for the lives of the other residents now. But how can you convince people that the Devil is real when you’ve been locked up for being crazy? Great, scary fun.

The Devil in the Valley by Castle Freeman, Jr.

Castle Freeman, Jr. is one of my favorite people. I love him so much. Retelling: This is the story of Taft, who makes a deal with a stranger: get what you want for a price. He doesn’t know if he can give the stranger what he wants. It’s a clever twist on a classic that looks at how we act when we get what we want most in life and how we feel when we get it.

The Devil’s Detective by Simon Kurtz Unsworth

In Hell, killing people is completely normal and even expected. When a crime is worse than the worst the Devil has ever seen, he sends Thomas Fool, an Information Man, to find the killer. The reason you should stay away is because you should not be there for Satan In other words: But this is Hell we are talking about. When everyone else is bad, how will Thomas know who is the worst? You might think of this as a police procedural set in the upside down.
