Speculative Fiction Novella Group: “Prosper’s Demon”

Decorah Public Library staff are hosting nine book discussions in May. The groups are open to the public and newcomers are encouraged to attend. Anyone interested should call the library at 382-3717 to learn more or to reserve a book. Zoom links are available on the Library’s website or you can email ktorresdal@decorahlibrary.org to be added to any of the six groups’ email distribution lists. Funds for multiple copy sets were generously provided by Friends of Decorah Public Library.

 The Speculative Fiction Novella Group will meet via Zoom Wed. May 25 at 6:30 p.m. to discuss K.J. Parker’s “Prosper’s Demon.” Prosper of Schanz is a man of science, determined to raise the world’s first philosopher-king, reared according to the purest principles. Unfortunately, he’s demonically possessed. Fortunately, the unnamed and morally questionable narrator of “Prosper’s Demon” is an exorcist. His methods aren’t delicate but they’re undeniably effective: he’ll get the demon out—he just doesn’t particularly care what happens to the person.  

For more information, contact Carmen Buss (Friday Book Group) or Kristin Torresdal (Happy Hour, History, and Speculative Fiction, and Novella Book Groups), or Zach Row-Heyveld (Cookbook Group) at 563-382-3717.
