The Lovereading4Kids comment
August 2010 Guest Editor Graham Marks on a master storyteller: "I think Dennis Wheatley’s The Devil Rides Out was the first time the cover of a book completely grabbed me (not a bad title, either) and then the story inside went on to really deliver – a very pleasant surprise, as this was not always the case. Dennis Wheatley was hugely popular when I was a kid – you could say he was kind of the Stephenie Meyer of his day, in that he wrote about black magic and the occult, except he had real edge and pulled no punches. He was a consummate storyteller and weaver of fantastic tales."
The Devil Rides Out by Dennis Wheatley
This work includes an Introduction by Antony Lejeune. The Devil Rides Out is the most famous work of a master storyteller, a classic of weird fiction which has been described as 'the best thing of its kind since Dracula' a genuinely frightening tale of devil-worship and sorcery in modern Britain. A group of old friends discover that one of them has been lured into a coven of Satanists. They determine to rescue him - and a beautiful girl employed as a medium. The head of the coven proves to be no charlatan but an Adept of the Dark Arts, able to infiltrate dreams and conjure up fearsome entities. De Richleau fights back with his own knowledge of occultism and ancient lore. A duel ensues between White and Black Magic, Good and Evil used as weapons. Whenever, subsequently, Dennis Wheatley was asked what he really believed about the supernatural, he would just reply 'Don't meddle!' Few readers will need that warning repeated.
