Magnificent Malevolence : Memoirs of a Career in Hell in the Tradition of The Screwtape Letters

By (author) Wilson, Derek

"I was a junior tempter then, but even in those days I showed phenomenal promise - a promise which, as all read this will know, has been amply fulfilled throughout a career of quite unprecedented guile, deviousness, and magnificent malevolence ..." From the archives of the Low Command: Ministry of Misinformation (stamp) This remarkable manuscript outlines the career of the prominent devil, Crumblewit (Order of the Sons of Darkness, 1st Class). Crumblewit provides a fiendish appraisal of the struggles between good and evil which dominated human affairs in the period from 1942 (when the great Screwtape's Letters were released to the world) to the present. Crumblewit's energies were deployed in the religious arena, undermining the attempts of Christians to carry out the mission entrusted to them by the Unmentionable One. The account is pleasingly distorted by its author's truly diabolical conceit and capacity for self-delusion. It sheds a very satisfying light on the tribulations experienced by humans throughout this period. Popular historian Derek Wilson is the author of over 60 books and has written and presented numerous television and radio programmes. He lives and writes in Devon.
