    Paradise Lost by John Milton (Jannes)
    Jannes: Milton's Satan is probably the most famous of all literary potrayals of the devil, and is more or less the source of the view of him as a sort of byronic antihero. If you're interested in the devil in fiction you really can't skip this one.

A mixed bag. I originally picked it up for the Neil Gaiman stories (which I realize I've read in other collections) and the China Mieville story (which was brand new to me). The real gem, in my opinion, is Natalie Babbitt's "The Power of Speech." I didn't know she could be so hilarious! I read it to my 10-year-old daughter who shrieked with laughter. Then, this 10-year-old, who usually steers clear of anything remotely creepy, requested that I read her another tale from this book. (I didn't like Holly Black's "Reversal of Fortune" as much, but it seemed the be the only other non-scary, non-creepy tale)

Also, there's an amazingly disturbing story by sci-fi writer Theodore Sturgeon. ( )

A reprint anthology of Hell boss stories that varies from quite few of the Devil Went Down to Georgia type stories through unfunny crap like the Ford story to actually rather funny Stross to the flies and dismemberment end of the whole Hell thing by Jay Lake.
