Sometimes being good is harder than it looks.When that just doesn't work out, there's always Plan B...like it or not.The Devil Has His Due contains four stories about dealing with the consequences when plan A doesn't quite come together.
"Closing Time" - Maybe the worst part of Hell isn't being there. It's remembering why.
"One Blissful Night at the Inferno Lounge" - The night life in Hell. Care to dance?
"Boiling the Frog" - Appearances can deceive, but not nearly as well as we can deceive ourselves.
"Subversion Clause" - Down through the ages there have been mortals who thought they could beat the Devil at his own game. So. Doesn't the Law of Averages suggest that at least one of them might be right?
Read The Devil Has His Due, but take a pass on the destination. You'll be glad you did.
