What if Captain Hook gave up marauding and took a gig at the Post Office? How did Hamlet's uncle Claudius become such a rat? What might happen if a plastic surgeon fell for Medusa? The answers to these and many other questions can be found in TALES THE DEVIL TOLD ME. These twelve stories examine the possible lives of literary villains while illuminating the consumptive nature of love, the crushing weight of isolation, the false promise of beauty, and the power of storytelling itself.
