This sf/f book by Alfred Bester is one of the best I have ever read, along with The Hitchhikers' Guide to the Galaxy Trilogy.
It opens with Regina and her bee ladies in the (not too) near future trying to summon up the devil as a pastime to relieve the boredom of life in the upper-class. By the time you have finished, though, the scary plot combined with the amazing illustrations will completely screw your mind up, even worse than the ending of So Long, and Thanks for All the Fish.
I don't want to give away the plot, but if you ever see this book in a bookshop, buy it immediately because it is seriously mind-fucking.
