"A Christian fantasy in which Satan impersonates Christ, reenacting his life in parody form and corrupting a small Swiss village; at the heart of the tale a bleak saturnalian revel brings the dead to life, and elicits from Satan the statement that only the powers of Earth count, for we are now beyond good and evil." - Clute and Grant (eds), The Encyclopedia of Fantasy, p. 800. "The story is well-told, with a wealth of peasant types and folkways."- Bleiler, The Guide to Supernatural Fiction 1372. "A rural fantasia comparable with Synge's PLAYBOY OF THE WESTERN WORLD." - Ernest Boyd (introduction). Bleiler (1978), p. 163. Reginald 11992. A fine copy in very good printed dust jacket with light wear along top and bottom edges and some general dust soiling, most noticeably to the spine panel which is also just a bit tanned. (#150946).
