After being murdered, young Jason Giles arrives in Hell and is tricked into taking over the devil’s job. With the help of his predecessor’s aide, he begins to learn the ropes of ruling Hell in order to defend himself from many mutinous demons and to keep the denizens of the fiery pit from escaping into the Realm of the Living.
Full of awkward heroes, wisecracking villains, and one teenager’s culture shock as he is thrust into an absurd underworld buckling beneath the weight of its own bureaucracy, The New Devil is the first volume of an ongoing series.

Alex Hansen is a part-time writer from Pennsylvania who specializes in interpretive rewrites of elementary school science textbooks.
Just kidding. But he has written about demons, dystopias and drive-thrus, so maybe nothing is off-limits. Inspired by a broad range of authors including Stephen Crane, Oscar Wilde, Dean Koontz and K. A. Applegate, he strives to craft interesting and relatable tales that have a little bit of heart and plenty of comedy.
