Book Description

The Demonologia Biblica: compiled and edited by Dean M Drinkel. The first in a collection of anthologies to be published by Western Legends throughout 2013 under the banner “Tres Librorum Prohibitorum”. A lexicon of demons full-to-bursting with great writers (some new, some award nominated, some award winning) from all around the world. But the Demonologia is something more. Much more in fact than the sum of its parts. A French nobleman from the 15th Century. Gilles de Montmorency-Laval, Baron de Rais, who was a serial killer and heavily into the occult. At his trial in 1438, it was said that de Rais had sought out individuals who were purported to summon demons. These summoning words were put into a Grimoire fashioned from human skin and which was commonly known as the Demonologia Biblica. A book which mysteriously vanished after de Rais’ execution but which is often talked about in ‘Dark Circles’. Imagine the power one could wield with such a weapon! Though who knows – maybe it never existed in the first place and was just a figment of someone’s warped imagination...I guess we may never know... until that book is found, turn the page and immerse yourself in the unique demonic worlds these twenty-six authors have created for you... ...get thee behind me, demon... Authors include: Barbie Wilde, William Meikle, Jan Edwards, John Palisano, Tracie McBride, D.T. Griffith, Kate Jonez, Simon Kurt Unsworth, Raven Dane, Jonathan Green, Lily Childs, Daniel I. Russell, Christine Dougherty, Mark West, Magen Cubed, Colleen Anderson, Emile-Louis Tomas Jouvet, Dave Jeffery, Nerine Dorman, Adrian Chamberlin, Sean Sweeney, Andy Taylor, Sam Stone, Dean M. Drinkel, Sandra Norval, Nicholas Vince

4.0 out of 5 stars Twenty-seven tales of demonic persuasion... 28 May 2013
First published back in March of 2013, author and editor Dean M Drinkel's anthology 'The Demonologia Biblicia' was set to be the first in a trilogy of anthologies to be published by Western Legends under the banner 'Tres Librorum Prohibitorum'.

Drinkel begins his anthology with a short introduction, explaining the origins of the anthology's name - 'Demonologia' meaning a lexicon of demons, and the 'Demonologia Biblicia' having been the book that was fashioned from human skin which the historical serial killer, Gilles de Montmorency-Laval, had sought out to summon demons. The twenty-six short stories for each letter of the alphabet then follows.

A is for Alpdrucke - Barbie Wilde
For the past few weeks Jim hadn't been sleeping well. In fact, nightmares had been keeping both himself and his girlfriend, Marney, awake almost every night. Now she'd had enough. And after hearing the nightmares involved a silly-hat-wearing-dwarf swinging a tennis racket with cheese-wire for strings just exasperated the situation further. Jim was now seeing Dr Gardner to get to the root of the problem. But, as Marney was finding out from her work colleague, Mr Zeiner, such things are often beyond the reach of science. What Jim was suffering from was a Germanic demon. An Alpdrucke. And it had something more than just torment in mind...

Hellraiser Cenobite actress Barbie Wilde kicks off the anthology with a weirdly nightmarish short that seems to have been born from the same cast as Clive Barker's 'The Yattering And Jack' crossed with the succubus from James Herbert's novel 'Once...' (2001). The short bounces along at an energetic pace, only stumbling for a page or two whilst detailing the intricacies of sleep.

2.0 out of 5 stars Poor editing 1 Sep 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I had to quit halfway through because of all the editing mistakes. Disappointed, because I really wanted to get through this book and enjoy it, but wasn't able to. I'm also upset that I paid for a book that the editor didn't care enough for the reader to make certain there weren't so many errors.

Always a gamble when reading these anthologies. Stories weren't frightening but entertaining to say the least. Thoroughly enjoyed the book overall and the price was right.

5.0 out of 5 stars Really Enjoyed It 4 May 2013
By sjbronski - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition
The stories were really great. Some were very disturbing. Others such as the letter M (Moloch) were so good I read it THREE times. Do not let the title put you off. It isn't what the title makes it out to be, it is just a collection of really good short stories about demons listed by their names in alphabetical order.

5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely loved everything about this book 19 Mar 2014
By Brandon Crouse - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Most of the stories are about the influence that demons have on the living. Some, however, actually revolve around the existence the demons themselves. Some demons love their jobs; tormenting humans to the point of insanity or suicide and then continuing that torment in Hell. While others, despise their very existence and long for destruction.

I found the stories to be very entertaining and once I completed the book, I wished that there were more. Some people like the feeling of wanting more after reading a good book. They prefer the feeling of closure. Personally, I love the feeling of wanting more. That adds to the excitement when there are talks of sequels. Having that feeling at the end of book is the sign of truly well written book. Whether it's a collection or a single story, wanting more is always the feeling I want after reading a book. The Demonologia Biblica definitely delivers that feeling.

3.0 out of 5 stars Some were interesting 26 May 2013
By afresh - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition
Most aren't, by far the collection is various as are demons(no repeating demon) and unique in creativity then why three stars?... because of its predictability in the outcome of its stories. Some you can tell the authors snail mailed in fresh concepts, the points of view were also predictable. One of the better stories is Yester it could've been greater if it stopped two pages ago, I don't want to be preached at nor lectured(believe me there are more stories that start off with a lecture or a conflicting monologue where the author is ranting). Then one it seems the author was high, started off good grammatically correct them delved straight to Victorian hillbilly(yeah) without a character being intro'ed so yup skipped it. Sorry for long review but if you wanna waste a few days or get a night rest this is the my opinion
