Product Details

Praise

Winner of the 2020 Whirling Prize in Horror

“Suitably chilling reading for Halloween . . . Shows in illuminating detail how the belief in demonic possession stretches back more than 2,500 years.” ―The Economist

“What better way to embrace spooky season than with this collection?” ―Mental Floss

“Fascinating.” ―Dax Shepard, Armchair Expert (podcast)

“Gripping . . . Thoroughly researched . . . [with a] descriptive flare in rendering the ‘goblinlike entities,’ jealous demons, and evil spirits . . . This is a boon for anyone curious about exorcism and its wide-ranging, spiritually diverse legacy.” ―Publishers Weekly

“Spellbinding . . . Gripping . . . Fascinating . . . Demons, devils, dybbuks, jinn, zar and Chinese fox-spirits abound in accounts dating back to ancient times. . . . The editor’s introductions are sharp and cogent. . . . [For] readers hungry for illumination―and a touch of terror.” ―Shelf Awareness
