Cover Art - "Sympathy for the Devil" edited by Tim Pratt

Tim Pratt at the Magic District blog posted the cover for the theme anthology Sympathy for the Devil with an impressive line-up of SFF authors. Due for release in August 2010 from Night Shade Books.


The Devil is known by many names: Serpent, Tempter, Beast, Adversary, Wanderer, Dragon, Rebel. His traps and machinations are the stuff of legends. His faces are legion. No matter what face the devil wears, SYMPATHY FOR THE DEVIL has them all.

Edited by Tim Pratt (HART & BOOT & OTHER STORIES, THE STRANGE ADVENTURES OF RANGERGIRL, BLOOD ENGINES), SYMPATHY FOR THE DEVIL collects the best Satanic short stories by Neil Gaiman, Holly Black, Stephen King, Kage Baker, Charles Stross, Elizabeth Bear, Jay Lake, Kelly Link, China Mieville, Michael Chabon, and many others, revealing His Grand Infernal Majesty, in all his forms.

Thirty-five stories, from classics to the cutting edge, exploring the many sides of Satan, Lucifer, the Lord of the Flies, the Father of Lies, the Prince of the Powers of the Air and Darkness, the First of the Fallen... and a Man of Wealth and Taste. Sit down and spend a little time with the Devil.

  1. I can't wait to get my hands on this, but I'm surprise they don't have Neil's name on the front.

  2. Good point Princess Allie. His name is always a grabber. But then there are 35 top flight authors here.
