Summary, etc.: The demon, known only as "Jakerbok," is a major force of evil then and now, who taunts the reader to "Burn this book!" throughout this satanically autobiographical monologue, for he has embedded his very self inside each word on each page ... as a long-dormant vehicle for the dark forces to finally conquer all things good and holy in this world. A one-man (or, rather a one-demon) narrative, in which this medieval devil speaks directly to the reader at hand is sure to become an instant classic for all fans of major "good vs. evil" literary works. This is the first known time that the voice of a major demon has ever been realized in book form, where it speaks directly--as in a poker game--to the reader. Hence, Jakerbok's taunt: For God's sake ... "BURN THIS BOOK!"
