Summary

Summary

Master of the short story and ex-private investigator Joe Gores presents a veritable treasure trove of the form in Speak of the Devil. In the title story, two near-genius scientists set out to prove that there is a no good-dispensing God by proving there is no evil-dispensing Satan with unforeseen results. In Raptor, Dunstan Trevor is a reluctant warrior facing a hitman. Plot It Yourself is Gores's only locked-room tale -- and it's a puzzler. These fourteen tales of terror are sure to grab you and keep you at the edge of your seat for hours!
