Mark Ronson

Mark Ronson was a pseudonym for the New Zealand-born British author Marc Alexander, who wrote a long list of non-fiction books about the history of Britain, including its mystical and haunted places, and a book called To Anger the Devil, a biography of Reverend Dr. Donald Omand. Omand was a renowned exorcist and vicar retired from the Church of England. He reportedly performed exorcisms not only on people, but on haunted places, including Loch Ness and the Bermuda Triangle.

Not much biographical information can be found on Marc Alexander, except that he wrote non-fiction, wrote fiction as Mark Ronson, and was born in New Zealand in 1929. This information comes courtesy of A Dictionary of Literary Pseudonyms in the English Language.  He wrote a handful of novels that were originally published by Hamlyn in the UK between 1978 and 1981 — BloodthirstGhoul, Ogre, and Plague Pit. They were re-released in the U.S. by Critics Choice, which almost exclusively reprinted UK horror novels for American audiences in the late 1980s.

Except for the UK edition of Ogre, which came from Amazon.co.uk, these cover scans are from the library of author Christopher Fulbright.
