A hundred years ago, churchmen in Lancashire set upon one another -- one sold his soul to the devil, and used his unfathomable power to send his rival to the gallows. The man he condemned died cursing him and his children . . . and those children became The Lancashire Witches. Mother Demdike -- the crone who was the child of the man who sold his soul to the devil -- has become an arcane monster, and she and her vile family are challenged only by their witchly rivals, Mother Chattox and Alice Nutter. . . .

Über den Autor Ainsworth, William Harrison

William Harrison Ainsworth (1805 - 1882) was an English historical novelist born at King Street in Manchester. He trained as a lawyer, but the legal profession held no attraction for him. While completing his legal studies in London he met the publisher John Ebers, at that time manager of the King's Theatre, Haymarket. Ebers introduced Ainsworth to literary and dramatic circles and to his daughter, who became Ainsworth's wife. Ainsworth briefly tried the publishing business, but soon gave it up and devoted himself to journalism and literature. His first success as a writer came with Rookwood in 1834, which features Dick Turpin as its leading character. A stream of 39 novels followed, the last of which appeared in 1881.
