It's astonishing that it's taken so many years for Christopher Moor's 1992 debut novel Practical Demonkeeping to receive it's first UK publication. Orbit have put this glaring omission to rights with this paperback original release. Essentially a comic fantasy with some comic horror thrown in for good measure, Practical Demonkeeping apparently sparked a bidding war in Hollywood for the film rights back in the early 90s - and fourteen years later, the movie seems no nearer to production. Nevertheless, the novel endures and now British readers get the chance to see what all the fuss was about.
