Astroworld Fallout: Exorcists And Demonologists Break Down The Satanic Influence At Travis Scott’s Deadly Concert

When I first heard the news of the tragic deaths at the Travis Scott Astroworld Festival, my first thought was, A sacrifice has been made. Apparently, I'm not the only one, as the article linked below illustrates. In this interesting and disturbing piece, several exorcists are asked about the events that took place and the demonic influence and activity that most likely was present at the venue.

Write It Down!


If you’re like me, thoughts flit through your head like snowflakes in a blizzard – and then melt before you can ever appreciate or remember them. That’s why I have scratch paper, Post-It Notes, writing pads, notebooks, and journals all over my house (and on my computer as well). 

I make a particular effort to jot down events that are, well, odd. A few such things occurred after my mother passed away, and I indeed scribbled them down with the date noted and such. I don’t want to ever forget, as I know they mean something, even if I haven’t figured out what yet.

Dark Pages Press, the imprint of my True Tales books, has come out with a cracking good journal for this very purpose: to make a permanent record of strange and eerie occurrences, thoughts, dreams, etc., that cross our days and nights. Or, as its subtitle suggests, to log “perceptions, ponderings and pursuits.” Contains some cool quotes as well.

More on Demonic Texting


  (From Msgr. Stephen Rossetti's blog

Exorcist Diary #147: Why Demons Text

"Checkmate," by Friedrich Moritz August Retzsch (A chess match with Satan)

My book, Diary of An American Exorcist, is out and surprisingly one of the most talked about items is demons texting. This encouraged me to dive more deeply into demonic texts we have received and to look for any insights or patterns that might help us understand their behavior.

We have had three cases in which demons have texted the team and/or the family of the possessed person.* Two of these cases were the most difficult cases we have had so far, and the third involved a pious family with priestly and religious vocations among the children. So, all were "high value" targets with high-ranking, powerful demons involved. This suggests that it takes considerable spiritual "energy" to cross over and manipulate such items in the physical world, and thus this action "costs" them a lot.

And I Thought Spam Texts Were Bad


(From the New York Post, July 3, 2021.)


US priest: Exorcisms on the rise as demons now haunt victims by text

American exorcist,  Monsignor Stephen Rossetti, claims that demons are tech savvy and send text messages to their victims.

This was the Evil One, all right.

As Monsignor Stephen Rossetti watched the man in front of him, he saw his blue eyes turn yellow and the pupils shrink down to mere dots. They looked, Rossetti said, precisely like the eyes of a hissing snake.

But the monsignor knew what it really was: The man’s altered appearance convinced him for a fact that the man was possessed by a demon.

Another time, a man’s entire eyes turned jet black, recalled Rossetti. “This doesn’t usually happen but when it does, it is very startling — it is obviously demonic,” he said.

Battling demonic forces is regular duty for Msgr Rossetti, a Catholic priest who worked in two parishes in the Diocese of Syracuse for five years. Now based in the Washington, DC, diocese, he and his team perform up to 20 exorcisms each week, liberating people — and homes — from what he calls “demons and satanic evil.”

Not Snow White's Dwarfs


In my latest book When Demons Attack, I have a chapter that discusses the existence of elementals, preternatural beings who are intrinsically connected to our planet’s matter, i.e., earth, air, fire, and water. The tale I relate in the book takes place in the Philippines, so I thought it interesting when I came across another incident of elemental (demonic, in this case) oppression in that same region where superstitions and folklore are very strong, even among the upper class.

The case in question involves a doctor who claimed that benign dwarfs (earth elementals) appeared to her and showered her with good luck and financial rewards in return for her “friendship” and homage. But when she decided to return to the practice of her faith, they revealed themselves to be demons and set about terrorizing her and her family with frightening paranormal activity. They also took temporary possession of her body for hours at a time.

The family requested the help of an exorcist priest, Fr. Jose Syquia, who recalled: “When the time came to bless her with holy water, a voice that wasn’t hers shouted for us to stop. What really scared me was that this was the first time that I saw something very alien in her eyes. I was looking at something else. It was totally evil.” After taunting the priest with personal details of his life that no one else in the room could possibly have known, the demons then declared, “We will never leave her.” Well, after hours of exorcism prayers they eventually did leave and all remains well with the good doctor.

The moral of the story: Beware of creepy little creatures bearing gifts.


Vacation Fun


My family and I spent a couple of days in Port Townsend, WA, and stayed at the Manresa Castle, a Victorian style historic hotel with a reputation for being haunted. (It was featured on Ghost Adventures in 2015.) We stayed there for the sole reason it was the only hotel with a vacancy. While the remote was not thrown at our heads as some guests reported happening, the bathroom light, which we were going to keep on as a nightlight, did go out inexplicably right as I turned off my Kindle to go to sleep. Thankfully, that's all Casper had in store for us.

Satan's Servants

A particularly disturbing post from Msgr. Stephen Rossetti's exorcist blog. Be careful out there, dear readers. The world has truly become the devil's playground.


 Exorcist Diary #141: Servants of Satan

Hieronymous Bosch "Death and the Miser," c. 1490-1516.


I am always surprised when I encounter people who willingly give themselves over to Satan’s service. It is one thing to struggle with temptation and to fall into his grasp through sin. It’s another thing to willingly choose to follow him.

The Father of Lies would like nothing better. At Satan's own defection, he sought to be god and wants people to serve him. Thus he tempted Jesus, "All of these [kingdoms of the world] I shall give to you, if you will prostrate yourself and worship me" (Mt 4:9).

These past few weeks (see Diary #140), we have directly encountered a Satanic cult.* They have been recruiting followers by threats and coercion. They have been actively cursing and manipulating young women. We have been supporting one who is valiantly resisting. Several Satanists have been arrested, but there are more at large

The Latest True Tales Book is Here! 



Was hoping to get this out sooner, but last year was, shall we say, a bit devilish.

Anyway, better times lie ahead. And what better way to welcome warmer weather, sunny skies, and blossoming flowers than with a big dose of DEMONS!
Yep, this True Tales book is the biggest yet with incredulous accounts of hideous manifestations, depraved assaults, and all other manner of frightening paranormal phenomena. 

As with all True Tales books, When Demons Attack strives to inform, entertain, and enthrall. But most of all, to warn.

These creatures are real. They walk among us. They never sleep.

After reading this book, you may not either.

The official release date of the ebook is April 5, 2021. (With print and audio TBA.)

Pre-orders are available now at Amazon. Check it out!

Eyes of a Demoniac

Msgr. Stephen Rossetti is an exorcist as well as an associate professor at The Catholic University of America. He writes a fascinating blog called the Exorcist Diary from which the following post comes. Oh, by the way, this photo is the real deal.


Snake Eyes

Sometimes it is difficult to determine if a person is possessed or the problems are psychological only. But other times, it is obvious. [Click to read the rest of the post.]


Video: Eerie 'Doll Altar' Found in England



Video: Eerie 'Doll Altar' Found in England: A woman walking through a wooded area in England stumbled upon a rather unsettling scene in the form of an eerie collection of baby dolls that had been fastened to trees as part of what appeared to be a makeshift altar.

New Fiction in the Frost Zone


Reporting something a little different in this post. Over the years, under different pseudonyms, I've written a number of short stories that have appeared in various online and print publications. I plan on actually releasing a collection of these works sometime next year. Most recently, I've had a short-short story published in the Winter issue of Frost Zone, a relatively new journal of speculative and literary fiction. In its two issues to date, Frost Zone has featured some stellar stories and poems, and is a welcome addition to the world of dark and eerie literature.

So grab a cup of something warm, wrap a blanket around your shoulders, and head over to the Frost Zone. Consider my story, "The Dinner Party," an appetizer for a main course of reading delights. Enjoy.
