From the cover: “In this collection of stories, many appearing for the first time, by leading British and American fantasists (John Wyndham, Judith Merril. Ramsay Wood, E. C. Tubb, Keith Roberts, Hilary Bailey among others), the Devil is seen in many guises. He is shown adapting his methods to modern techniques; he is conjured up by new Fausts for nefarious purposes; he is tricked by a clever conjuror here, and claims his due by a counter-trick there. It is the oldest dramatic confrontation in fiction; in expert modern hands, it remains as imaginatively fresh as ever.”
