In 2013, when the state of Oklahoma erected a statue of the Ten Commandments on the grounds of the state capitol, a group calling themselves The Satanic Temple applied to erect a statue of Baphomet alongside the Judeo-Christian tablets. Since that time, The Satanic Temple has become a regular voice in national conversations about religious freedom, disestablishment, and government overreach. In addition to petitioning for Baphomet to appear alongside another monument of the Ten Commandments in Arkansas, the group has launched campaigns to include Satanic "nativity scenes" on government property in Florida, Michigan, and Indiana, offer Satanic prayers at a high school football game in Seattle, and create "After School Satan" programs in elementary schools that host Christian extracurricular programs. Since their 2012 founding, The Satanic Temple has established 19 chapters and now claims 100,000 supporters. Is this just a political group perpetuating a series of stunts? Or is it a sincere religious movement? Speak of the Devil is the first book-length study of The Satanic Temple. Joseph Laycock, a scholar of new religious movements, contends that the emergence of "political Satanism" marks a significant moment in American religious history that will have a lasting impact on how Americans frame debates about religious freedom. Though the group gained attention for its strategic deployment of outrage, it claims to have developed beyond politics into a genuine religious movement. Equal parts history and ethnography, Speak of the Devil is Laycock's attempt to take seriously The Satanic Temple's work to redefine religion, the nature of pluralism and religious tolerance, and what "religious freedom" means in America.

The time is the first decade of the twenty-first century. The place is Tokyo, Japan – specifically, the ward known as Shinjuku. An 8.5 earthquake shatters Shinjuku, destroying buildings and streets and turning the bustling ward into a haunted ghost town plagued by the paranormal and the bizarre. Scientists and ESP investigators – along with criminals, enterprising yakuza gangs and mutant cyborgs – come to “Demon City”; some to study the effects of the Devil Quake, others to commit heinous acts of savage violence, and still others to live freely in this lawless town on the edge of the abyss. This is the world of Demon City Shinjuku and how it all began. It is now 2030 and President Kozumi Rama of the World Federation is attacked by an otherworldly demon – Reba Ra, an evil sorcerer of immense power. The only person who can stop Ra is yogi Master Agni Rai’s former apprentice, Genichiro Izayoi – but Genichiro is dead. His son, Kyoya Izayoi, a high school student and the inheritor of Izayoi’s killer nenpo martial arts technique, now enters Shinjuku to try to stop Sorcerer Ra from unleashing the ultimate horror in Demon City. The fate of Shinjuku – and the rest of the world – hangs in the balance. The story of Demon City Shinjuku continues in Demon Palace Babylon, included in this special two-volume complete edition. Acclaimed Japanese horror writer Hideyuki Kikuchi (Vampire Hunter D) established the Wicked City universe with his debut novels Demon City Shinjuku and Demon Palace Babylon. Discover the origins of Dr. Mephisto and the Yashakiden: The Demon Princess series in this new English-language omnibus edition!
