Practical Demonkeeping

1, Pine Cove Series

This book is available for download with iBooks on your Mac or iOS device, and with iTunes on your computer. Books can be read with iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.


In Christopher Moore's ingenious debut novel, we meet one of the most memorably mismatched pairs in the annals of literature. The good-looking one is one-hundred-year-old ex-seminarian and "roads" scholar Travis O'Hearn. The green one is Catch, a demon with a nasty habit of eating most of the people he meets. Behind the fake Tudor façade of Pine Cove, California, Catch sees a four-star buffet. Travis, on the other hand, thinks he sees a way of ridding himself of his toothy traveling companion. The winos, neo-pagans, and deadbeat Lotharios of Pine Cove, meanwhile, have other ideas. And none of them is quite prepared when all hell breaks loose.

From Publishers Weekly

Nov 01, 1993 – A people-eating demon threatens a sleepy California resort town in Moore's offbeat, witty debut.

Customer Reviews

A Favourite

Funny, witty and fun to read...

Ok, but not the best Moore

Let's be honest. It is really hard after you write a book such as Lamb, to create something equal - or better.
so, this book is a good one. The story is funny, but you won't feel the need to understand what will happen.
You will forget the names of the characters after some days, and after probably months you'll forget the story itself. It's a short story made long. It's to be saved just because Moore is a funny guy. But whatever you're going to do, well, if you're looking for your first Moore book, go for Lamb, or A dirty job, and leave this apart.
