Kurzbeschreibung

12. Mai 2011
"The Best of Dennis Wheatley" brings together three of his best-known works in one book. "The Devil Rides Out": in 1930s London, Duc de Richleau and Rex van Ryn rescue their friend Simon Aron from a devil-worshipping cult. Rex falls for a woman named Tanith and takes her away from the cult. The group's leader comes after them, and there is a desperate struggle to defeat the Angel of Death and escape the cult leader, Mocata. "To the Devil a Daughter" tells the story of a group of practising Satanists who disguise themselves as 'The Children of the Lord'. Catherine - a nun - is one of this group. She is allowed to come home once a year on her birthday. On one of these trips home, an occult writer named John Verney realizes that the group are Satanists and are preparing Catherine to become an avatar of Astaroth on her eighteenth birthday. "Gateway to Hell" sees the return of characters from "The Devil Rides Out". Rex van Ryn steals more than a million dollars from his family bank and vanishes in Buenos Aires. Rex's friends have suspicions about the ex-SS Gruppenfuhrer with whom he is said to have been consorting; they find themselves pursuing Rex to the Bolivian Andes and confronting Satanist forces once again.

Pressestimmen

"I desire to state that I, personally, have never assisted at, or participated in, any ceremony connected with Magic - Black or White....Should any of my readers incline to a serious study of the subject, and thus come into contact with a man or woman of Power, I feel that it is only right to urge them, most strongly, to refrain from being drawn into the practice of the Secret Art in any way. My own observations have led me to an absolute conviction that to do so would bring them into dangers of a very real and concrete nature." (DENNIS WHEATLEY)"

Über den Autor und weitere Mitwirkende

Dennis Wheatley's first published novel, The Forbidden Territory was an immediate success, when published in 1933, so much so it was reprinted seven times in seven weeks! Some of his books were made into films by Hammer, of which the best known is The Devil Rides Out (1968). He died in 1977.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Classic Black Magic from Dennis Wheatley 16. Februar 2013
Von Bill Major - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
I read and still have the paperback copies of "The Devil Rides Out" and "Gateway to Hell" which I purchased back in the mid 1970s. That got me interested in Dennis Wheatleys occult stories, especially the characters in several of his books, The Duc de Richleau, Rex Van Ryn, and Simom Aron. To the Devil a Daughter is very intense and also decribes life in Europe after World War 2 where socialism is becoming dominant. One of my favorite authors... To have all three in one beautiful book is great.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Black Magic from Dennis Wheatley: The Deveil Rides Out, etc. 7. März 2014
Von Kevin Lewis - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
A classic collection of old-school occult thrillers, ranging from 1934 through the early 70's; stylishly dated hokum at it's best. Back in the days when everyone was either a gentleman of leisure or an endangered heiress and highly organized Satanic lodges lurked around every corner-colorfully infilled with a mixture of honest-to-God occult lore picked up personally from Aleister Crowley (as well as a fair amount of utterly bogus planetary numerology and operational details) this whole trip is like Agatha Christie on acid. Highly recommended!

Von AliGhaemi - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
This volume is a compilation of three of Dennis Wheatley's books, namely The Devil Rides out, To The Devil A Daughter and Gateway To Hell. Each book contains more Christian mythology per square centimetre than a monk's canon, which makes sense as for sheer fantastic occult entertainment the Holy Book remains singularly unmatched. Just witness the original yarn itself: survived for over 2,000 years and nominally as popular as ever.

Possibly like others I came to be interested in the book through my copy of the film version of The Devil Rides Out The Devil Rides Out [VHS], which was superbly shot and released in 1968 as part of the Hammer Horror productions. We watched that deliciously devilish dark denizen of filmdom as friends some twenty years ago before a copy made its way into my collection. It was subsequently when searching for the source book that it transpired that the popularity of the mid-twentieth century author Dennis Wheatley has waned and the book transposed to the out-of-print realm. In 2011 the 1934 book was reprinted, as one tome, alongside 1953's To The Devil A Daughter and 1970's Gateway To Hell. This nicely bound and hardcover edition features a foreword by the author's grandson, Dominic Wheatley. It is 700 pages long. Incidentally, or one should say coincidentally, another of Wheatleys books was recently filmed. The Haunted Airman stars Robert Pattinson. So what about the three-in-one book?
Having watched the film twenty years ago it became one of my favourite films as it had it all, thrills, superstition, Christianity and the devil, demons, sacrifice and a young damsel in distress, or rather, a damsel being sacrificed and one finds the same in the book that `inspired it.'
There is some deviation between the first part of the book and the film, but despite that the horror movie is both true to the book and as much fun and fast-paced. The book, however, is much more Christian and consequently more superstitious. Indeed, a deviation is the heavy Christian preaching, with the book of course being longer, more elaborate and involved, but when the settings coincide the two versions are remarkably similar.

Despite the hero being a female called Molly To The Devil A Daughter is somewhat autobiographical. Wheatley uses some of his own experiences and participation in World War II to write the book. Our heroine has war experience, had a husband in WW2 and even uses her experiences to become an author. Since the reader is just being introduced to the character of Molly Fountain there are lots and lots of description of her, her disposition and her past.
There are many silly plot holes. A call gets traced back when they could have called from elsewhere, a friend is a spy and readily shows up in France, the police can discover anything and then powers fail at the right time of course, but worst of all one can see the resolution coming for some time. While the book has a little too much talk instead of action, the plot and the dramatic turn of events make for fun reading. Not so much fun for some might be the proselytizing as on page 304 where Godless is equated to being rudderless.
To The Devil A Daughter begins as an action book, descends to the lair of Satan. It lifts off to the astral planes of science fiction before turning in a little anti-commie performance.

Gateway To Hell reintroduces the characters of the Duc, Richard and Simon from The Devil Rides out. All three are older yet still fast friends. This time Simon is wiser and on the other side of the table of events. South America is a focus. Both President Peron and his wife Eva are in for some special scorn. This book is especially full of superstition, coincidence and drinking, although one senses that amidst the sinister tumult the arguments for God, Jesus and white magic are tempered by some realism and counterbalance - even from the Duc whose astral powers are clearly further developed. What happens with the bride's eyes is most dissatisfying example of lazy storytelling.
The book has its share of flimsy reasons to resolve matters and transpires weakly somewhat in this regard, but still packs a hell of a good read past the dogmatic doctrines of Christ and his apostles. Read page 612 for an instance.
