Can you Cheat the Devil?

The Devil, Lucifer, his names are legion and his representatives are everywhere, waiting to offer foolish mortals anything they desire. And all these demonic salespeople want from anyone in return is his or her immortal soul. Seems a small enough price to pay for eternal youth, more wealth than you know what to do with, the fantasy lover of your choice, instant fame, the opportunity to become the ruler of the world... The possibilities are endless. And surely you'll be the one who can beat the Devil, get everything you demand, and escape with your soul intact.

Qvamp says:

A collection of short stories focusing on deals with the devil. Most are straight or unisexual, but two deal with queer issues.

The story 'Winter' is an unusual story that involves a man selling his soul to have a demon fall in love with him... and the problem when two types of beings have trouble knowing exactly what love it.

'Jealous Gods' involves a priest losing his faith when a brilliant student of his is ex-communicated when he asks the church to marry him to his male lover.
