Yorkshire may be God’s Own County but Lancashire, at least for Andrew Michael Hurley, is firmly in the possession of the Devil. Hurley’s first novel, The Loney (2014), follows a dysfunctional Catholic family on a pilgrimage to a holy well situated on a ‘wild and useless length of English coastline’ near Morecambe Bay, where they find that the eldritch landscape plays host to occult rituals and supernatural manifestations.
