From The Ninth Gate
My latest work: "The Devil: History and Myth" - a kind of biography. It will be published early next year.
Why the devil?
I saw him one day. I was fifteen years old, and I saw him as plain as I see you now. It was love at first sight.
You know, 300 years ago, you'd have been burned at the stake for saying something like that.
300 years ago I wouldn't have said it!
