The Necromancers by Robert Hugh Benson (1871 - 1914).


Laurie (Laurence) is a gadabout young man in search of something meaningful. His friend and near-sister (through adoption), Maggie Deronnais, a convent-bred cradle Catholic, suspects that his conversion was more a matter of aesthetics than spirituality. He’s gone from Anglican to Catholic, from priesthood to the law, from considering his adopted sister as the object of his affection to falling in love with the grocer’s daughter. His mother despairs of him finding his true path.
When the object of his affection – Amy – dies, Laurie is inconsolable. Then he meets an acquaintance of his mother’s who is into Spiritualism. Though Mrs. Stapleton and Lady Laura, Laurie meets Mr. Vincent, a medium who believes Laurie is a truly gifted medium, and encourages him to reach out to the deceased Amy. However, as Laurie dabbles more and more with the occult, he is gradually pulled into something beyond his control. Will Maggie be able to help her brother when he doesn't realize that he has gone too far?

  • Type of proof-listening required (Note: please read the PL FAQ): standard



    IMPORTANT - soloist, please note: in order to limit the amount of languishing projects (and hence the amount of files on our hard-pressed server), we ask that you post an update at least once a month in your project thread, even if you haven't managed to record anything. If we don't hear from you for three months, your project may be opened up to a group project if a Book Coordinator is found. Files you have completed will be used in this project. If you haven't recorded anything yet, your project will be removed from the forum (contact any admin to see if it can be re-instated).
    Please don't download or listen to files belonging to projects in process (unless you are the BC or PL). Our servers are not set up to handle the greater volume of traffic. Please wait until the project has been completed. Thanks!
