Today’s Halloween hangout is a conversation between Belfast’s Wendy Erskine and Glasgow’s David Keenan.

Two of The Social’s favourite writers got together and discussed the inspiration behind their pamphlets Satan is Real: Two Short Stories and Empty Aphrodite: An Encyclopaedia of Fate both published as part of the Museum of Witchcraft and Magic series by Rough Trade Books earlier this year. They touch on the demons that help write their work, finding porno mags in the Airdrie wilderness, religion and the fates, Aleister Crowley and New Zealand post-punk.
