Have you seen the cloven hoof prints on the cellar steps? Have you heard the fiddle player cursing? Can you smell the scent of burning secrets?
Shot through with diabolical horror, absurd confessions and humour fit for the unholy ghost - master of all things odd, Tim Ralphs, shines a spotlight on Him Downstairs, Old Nick, Beelzebub, the Devil himself, to see if he might just be ready for a rebrand!
In this wild reimagining of folktale, fairytale and urban legend, Tim exhumes the bones of ancient Devil stories and stitches them into new skins for fresh consumption. This grand collection spans supermarket stalls, urban sprawls, mad drunken preachers and widow’s sons: darkly humorous with disturbing twists and a distinct whiff of sulphur....
