Pyper_The Demonologist

Congratulations to Andrew Pyper on the publication of The Demonologist (Simon & Schuster, Canada and US). The book has already generated a lot of buzz. Here is just some of the attention it has received so far:

Profile in the Toronto Star

“A complex novel about loss, anger, faith, grief, love and forgiveness…[The Demonologist] will frighten you out of your shoes.”
Toronto Star

Profile in the National Post

“The Demonologist is a literary horror story that values smarts over scares, though there are plenty of both.”
National Post

A review in NOW

“Pyper’s a star because he writes so spectacularly. The entire story is drenched in dread, and his most terrifying scenes are so vivid, you’d best not be reading the book just before hitting the sack.”

A review in Maclean’s

“The Demonologist reads like a ready-made screenplay, a fast-paced Exorcist-meets-Da Vinci Code where the actual horror happens off-screen, in the mind. Which, as Pyper surely knows from Milton, is where evil truly dwells.”
Maclean’s Magazine

Review in The Globe and Mail

“Part horror, part thriller, all page-turner . . . The Demonologist has all the twisting excitement of a Dan Brown novel, and all the lurid, gory violence of a Stieg Larsson.””
