Charged with gross incompetence, Satan is fired from his job as Prince of Hell and exiled to that most terrible of places: English suburbia. Forced to live as a human under the name of Jeremy Clovenhoof, the dark lord not only has to contend with the fact that no one recognises him or gives him the credit he deserves but also has to put up with the bookish wargamer next door and the voracious man-eater upstairs.
Heaven, Hell and the city of Birmingham collide in a story that features murder, heavy metal, cannibalism, armed robbers, devious old ladies, Satanists who live with their mums, gentlemen of limited stature, dead vicars, petty archangels, flamethrowers, sex dolls, a blood-soaked school assembly and way too much alcohol.
Heide lives in North Warwickshire with her husband and children.
Iain’s horror stories have appeared in various magazines and anthologies (Dark Tales, Song of the Satyrs, Absent Willow Review, Volume Magazine). His short story, ‘Six of the Best’ appeared in the Tindal St Press anthology, ‘Roads Ahead’, and was praised by the Guardian newspaper.
