Episode 31: The Devil in the Details - Lucifer in Modern Speculative Fiction
This week the dragons tackle the ultimate adversary himself. Despite the focus on the new portrayals of the devil in speculative fiction, SFF authors J.A.Ironsode and M.E.Vaughan start firmly in the past, looking at depictions of 'the great destroyer' from the Old Testament to Dante's Inferno to Milton's Paradise Lost. On the slab for more modern facsimiles we have Constantine, Supernatural, Lucifer, Horns by Joe Hill, a number of books by Stephen King and The Devil Rides Out by Dennis Wheatley.
Join us for a fiendishly good discussion.
