It was about a month ago that a librarian friend of mine mentioned pursuing a research question on a particular demon. This brought to my attention that there are many, many books out there that are presented as being comprehensive lists of spirits.
I thought it might be fun to examine them. Before examining any at great length, I came up with a list of half a dozen particular entities. By covering their treatment in each of these books, we might get a good idea as to what books might be best for the cost-conscious bibliophile or librarian. It’s an unscientific process, to be sure, but I wanted to keep it fun.
