Tales: The Duc de L'Omelette

(originally published as “The Duke of l’Omelette” March 1832 in Philadelphia Saturday Courier)

A man dies and finds himself in the Devil’s apartment. Indignantly opposed to the Devil’s “barbarous” intentions of feeding him to the fires of hell, the man challenges the Devil to a card game, hoping to win his soul back and escape the flames.

Summary written by Taylor Colegrove, May 2011. Title links to the full text of the story.
