The Necromancers


Monsignor Robert Hugh Benson was an incredibly popular author and novelist. He was skilled in attacking evil practices without appearing to preach about them.

In 'The Necromancers' the young barrister Laurie Baxter falls in love with a local girl, Amy, who dies of natural causes before they wed. Obsessed with her, and in his distress after her death, he can't bear her absence. He needs to contact her, to touch her again, if at all possible.

Baxter had recently converted intellectually to the Catholic Faith, but not with his heart. Amy's death provides a test that he appears to fail. He connects with a spiritualist circle hoping that the medium will help him bring back his love. He will do anything to get back to Amy, except wait for eternity. As goes the ironic inscription on Amy's tombstone:

"I shall see her but not now".

He has a dream in which he encounters an overwhelmingly evil presence.........
