Memoirs of a Working Exorcist

David Devereux makes his living as an exorcist. This is a night of his tales.

David Devereux makes his living as an exorcist. He does his work quietly and discreetly in locations ranging from ordinary suburban homes, country pubs and provincial offices to the boardrooms of multinationals and the mansions of household names. He can tell the difference between psychic activity, hauntings by the dead and other entities; he has cornered a malevolent ghost, and has witnessed violent and terrifying poltergeist activity.

This is a night of his tales. Devereux’s delivery is the deadpan, matter-of-fact tone of the unphased professional. He tries, he says, to approach the tasks of his profession with calm, authority and logic – if often accompanied by a cigarette and a swift whisky. A superb night is guaranteed for all. And yes, he is for real.

David Devereux is a senior field officer for Athanor Consulting, a paranormal protection agency based in Bristol. His Memoirs of an Exorcist was published in 2006 by Andre Deutsch, and his magical thriller Hunter’s Moon (Gollancz) will be out in June 2007. For more on him see http://www.david-devereux.com/.
