The Devil You Know – K J Parker

A short (120 page) book, with a long (encompassing several years worth of) conversation between one of Parker’s long standing creations, Saloninus, and one of the Devil’s minions. The encounter between these two is an unfair contest…

Easy to read, full of delightful barbs, witticisms, and pauses for thought, this is a fun and rewarding read. It is cheeky, irreverent, packs a punch at the end, and is well worthy of your time.

One point worth stressing is that you do not need to have read any of the author’s other material to enjoy the book. It does stand on its own.

Highly recommended. (But get the Kindle version, as the paperback is ridiculously overpriced.)
