sources on exorcism and demons

I've just compiled a nice bibliography for my agent on exorcism. Just in case you're interested, here are a few books that I consulted (and enjoyed reading) while I worked on Rachael's possession and subsequent exorcism. I'm not going to talk a lot about it here, because of some upcoming blog interviews, but maybe later.

If you're interested, that is.

Here are a few of the books I used:
