I read this at least twenty years ago and remember enjoying it, and it was fun to read as an adult too. Nothing to be taken too seriously - after all, it's about a demon cobbling together Prince Charming and Sleeping Beauty out of body parts in order to win the Millennial contest between Good and Evil - but still a fun bit of light fantasy. I've always been a fan of Heaven vs. Hell stories, and the sheer goofiness of this one adds a little something extra. It's a good waiting room book. ( )

Fun and wel written, but in my opinion a significant notch under the classic Zelazny (Lord of Light, Amber, Changeling).
I feel it is fun to see Zelazny and Sheckley trying their hand at writing Pratchett style. They do not, however manage to get that over-the-top-and-then-some quality of Discworld novels. ( )

Reminded me of Good Omens (a fantastic book). Very amusing. ( )

A neat example of the 'demon from hell as hero' genre. Always amusing and occasionally very clever, as the central character Azzie tries to assemble a living version of Sleeping Beauty to corrupt as evil's entry in the Millenium competition. Many delights. ( )
