Interview with Kenneth B. Andersen, author of The Angel of Evil

21 Oct 2019

What can you tell us about your new release, The Angel of Evil?

The Angel of Evil is book 4 in The Great Devil War series. The series begins with “The Devil’s Apprentice”, in which Philip – a good boy – accidentally gets sent to Hell to become the Devil’s heir. The Devil, Lucifer, is dying and desperately in need of a successor, but there’s been a mistake and Philip is the wrong boy. Philip is terrible at being bad, but Lucifer has no other choice than to begin the difficult task of training him in the ways of evil. Even though the story (mostly) takes place in Hell, it’s also a humorous tale about good and evil seen from a different perspective. The story of Philip’s adventures in Hell continues in book 2 and 3 – “The Die of Death” and “The Wrongful Death” – where the reader also gets to visit Death’s domain, Paradise, Hades, and other underworlds. In book 4 – “The Angel of Evil” – the Great Devil War finally breaks out. This is where all hell breaks loose…

What books are currently on your nightstand?

I just finished “The Institute” by Stephen King. I’m a huge King fan and I always look forward to finding out what he’s up to this time. I’m also a big fan of his son Joe Hill and his new short story collection “Full Throttle” is my next read as well as book 2 in Patrick Ness’ Chaos Walking trilogy.

What advice would you give your teenage self?

Don’t think I would give any. Everyone knows that messing with time is a dangerous thing (I’ve even written a book about it, which will come out next year) and I wouldn’t want to risk screwing things up, risking not meeting my wife or something like that. The butterfly effect, no thanks.

If you had an extra hour each day, how would you spend it?

Though I read every day, I would like to read more. There are so many good books out there, that deserves to be read.

What makes your world go round? Why does it bring you joy?

My day job and my evening job: Writing and spending time with my family. Don’t need anything else.

What scene in The Angel of Evil was your favorite to write?

There is a scene where Philip – and the reader – witnesses what happened the time Lucifer declared war on God. Why he did it and what the consequences were. I like the scene a lot and when I wrote it, it felt like I was there, too. It would be a great scene for a movie.
