Demons are of course nothing more than fallen angels. And before the fall, Lucifer Morningstar was the most beautiful of the angels, and the most beloved of God. Over the millennia, demons have gotten a bad rap in every mythology and in every culture. Tempting humans into sin and into evil—but what is sin? What is evil?

for Necessary Evils

Anders found a young incubus and tried to help him by introducing him to his lifestyle and other incubus in the hopes that this young uns and another friend will be able to build a pack of their own. Not sure I liked how Anders did it but it’s wonderful getting a glimpse of what his triad’s been up to.

"Discodemius," by Jerry L. Wheeler

Raising Hell: Demonic Gay Erotica is the counterpart to the earlier anthology Wings: Subversive Gay Angel Erotica, both edited by Todd Gregory. Looking at the evil in this book - and let's be honest, evil can be sexy - is also fun on more than one occasion.

"Discodemius" is the first tale in the collection, and it's full to the brim(stone) with snappy dialog, a twisted concept, and a hapless fellow who thinks conjuring up a demon just to be entertained is somethi

This book is actually a collection of 14 short stories. All of the stories were good but some were better that others, hence why I gave it 4 stars.

It is good to see that demons are now being categorized with vampires, werewolves and the like. They seem to come alive more in this collection than they ever did in reading about them in mideival or Biblical works. Maybe the gay romance helped.

I would recommend this collection of short stories bound in one nice volume. hope to see more like this ..

Got this anthology because of Necessary Evils by Nathan Burgoine, naturally. I thought about it for a long time but eventually gave in. Not sure it was the smartest move since I'm not big on demons... *sigh* I should work my way through the rest of the stories. I think I will. Eventually.

So, Necessary Evils, yeah? Anders tells this story again. Fun, sexy, demon, totally into guys and currently living with a witch and vampire. Sounds pretty awesome if you ask me!

And once again I was smitten with

Not as good as it could have been. I bought this to get my hands on a particular short story, "Necessary Evils" by 'Nathan Burgoine. And I went looking for that story because it promised (and delivered) to fill in the hole in the storyline in the full length book, Triad Blood.

I read the other ones because having spent the money I was curious about the rest. The first few stories were decent enough but as the book went on not so much were to my liking. One or two took things in a more horrific d
