Daemons Discuss: Podcast - Take 1! | About Us and The All Souls Trilogy

Take 1 - The One Where We Tell You About Ourselves. 

Description: Brief synopsis of how we met, how we came to these books, what the heck we are doing with this podcast (hint - your guess is as good as ours!), and some general impressions on the All Souls Trilogy.  We are the ladies behind Daemons Domain - we are simply removing the curtain and giving you a peek at us; geeky, nerdy fan girls ('girls' <- HA! Correction: 'girls at heart' would be a better description of us, but in our heads we remain just what we said, "girls").

SPOILER ALERT! We (The Daemons) approach this podcast with an assumption that the listener has read The All Souls Trilogy, including A Discovery of Witches, Shadow of Night, and The Book of Life.  If you haven't, and you don't mind, we certainly don't mind!  :)  Let's do this.


1. Show notes:

1. For newcomers to the series:
We'll start with the basics: The books in discussion are A Discovery of Witches, Shadow of Night and The Book of Life.  Together they make The All Souls Trilogy by Deborah Harkness. 
- Our Daemon Guides to the All Souls Trilogy are available for download: ADOW, SON, TBOL
- If you'd like a ready-reference from the author herself, be sure to download the All Souls Real-Time Reading companion (free e-book at online booksellers via Penguin and Headline books).
- Deborah Harkness usually conducts a real-time reading on her Facebook Page (starting in September), and shares her posts across social media.  Check out her website for all of her social media links, and of course all that she has to offer her readers!
- For All Souls chapter-by-chapter reading/commentary visit The All Souls Podcast.
- To see what's available on the web as far as the All Souls universe fandom, check our links page.

2. In this episode (not necessarily in order):
- For an overview of what Angela covered in the news portion visit our latest RRR (Ridiculously Random Recap)
- View our Summer 2016 giveaways
- Our starter-venture: Armitage4Clairmont
- Visit The Tenth Knot, A Feast for All Souls, AllSoulsCon.   The "various pages & groups" mentioned are available in our links section.
- Our "off the beaten path" Prince tribute can be read --> here.
Château de Murol, Auvergne
- Jean compared Matthew to Rochester; Sparknotes on characters in Jane Eyre, by Charlotte Brontë
- To see our podcast page visit (not much listed there right now, but that's where we plan to list our episodes) - FYI, it's still Daemons Domain, but it's an easy way to go directly to the podcast page.
- Château de Murol, Auvergne - the name of which Valerie expressed that she didn’t dare pronounce, but Angela did unabashedly - is Deb’s inspiration for La Pierre in A Discovery of Witches.
- Tune in next time - we are going to talk about vampires!
- *Note to listeners: we are working on our audio quality!  Our individual acoustics (at this point) may vary. We will get better, we promise!
- * Special thanks goes to Laura (of TTK & ASC) for being our beta-listener.  Laura, thank you for your discretion from all of those months ago when we shared our tentative plans.  Thank you for your encouraging words which aided in giving us the courage to click "record".  Finally, thank you for your kind words after listening.  Let's hope you're right! :)

 3. Whoops! - (Corrections)
- 2:32; Angela said the "About Me" tab when referring to The Tenth Knot's location for the real-time reading calendars.  That's been moved since we've recorded.  It's now under the "Books and Downloads" Tab.

Jeff Greenstein: "When Marta & David & Jeff & I did 'Dream On', we used to spend a lot of time thinking about titles, because they were on-screen at the top of each episode. On "Friends", we decided that was a waste of time. We figured, why not name each episode after the thing that people will ostensibly be talking about around the water-cooler the next day?"

Ridiculously Random Recap - Issue 8!

Latest News on the All Souls Trilogy and Beyond!
Ah, the Ridiculously Random Recap! Why the name? Because it's a recap. And it's random (ridiculously so). There is no rhyme, reason or rationale, reference its recurring release. Also, alliterations are almost always adored by able, yet addled daemons!

Welcome to Issue 8!  We are covering the highlights of the summer of 2016 through today.  This recap is just in case you missed what we and others have previously covered on Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, Instagram and elsewhere!

Here’s the what’s been happening in the All Souls Universe -

We have Author News!

From Deb's Website
The Serpent’s Mirror
Deborah Harkness has gone from a juggling act (professor, author, producer, etc.) to becoming the Ringmaster of her own circus.  She’s been writing lots about The Serpent’s Mirror but reported those crazy writing monkeys sometimes want her to write about other stories and characters.  Deb said that the Bishops and de Clermonts “continue to be their own stubborn, elusive, and opinionated selves.”  Let’s be honest, if she were to author a phone book, we’d read it!

A Discovery of Witches TV
Deb and ADOWTV writers are approaching the halfway point in the writing of the first season.  They’ve finished the document that lays out all the All Souls Universe -- the characters, settings, plot and the rules for living in that world.  Recently, she’s been talking TV with Bad Wolf!  She just got back from “three intense and rewarding days with the production and writing teams for the television adaptation of ADOW”, figuring out the minute details of adapting the book to TV.  She reports that long discussions have been had about what makes sense to adapt to the small screen, what they can’t live without, and what will have to remain the reader’s mind’s eye.  Unfortunately, she can’t break any news about broadcasters, schedules and the like.  That will be up to the production team.  You can bet we will stay tuned!

Screen shot of the banner from the newly redesigned website
The Deborah Harkness website has been redesigned with readers and fans in mind.  You can stay up to date with Deb’s announcements, events and more.  Plus, fans can get interactive with her  #tagboard in the Fans Respond section of her website.  Tag your social media posts with #DeborahHarkness, and it will show up on tagboard!

Real-Time Reading
The real-time reading season is upon us!  A Discovery of Witches real-time read along started Sunday, September 18.  Readers can grab their All Souls Real-Time reading companions and follow the A Discovery of Witches story in real-time.  Deb’s tip to finding your own companion is to do a search for harkness all souls companion.  There are also real-time reading calendars out there to help readers keep track of what to read and when. The Tenth Knot has a downloadable calendar in their Books/Download section that will take you through the dates in which A Discovery of Witches, and Shadow of Night occurred.  Readers are encouraged to share their bookish photos and All Souls locations on social media.  Be sure to tag your post with #RealTimeReadingADOW! If you’re still not sure where to start, check out A Discovery of Witches Real-Time Reading FAQs!

The Voynich Manuscript
You can channel your inner Diana Bishop and try to crack the mysterious code that is The Voynich Manuscript.  Yale University Press will be publishing a facsimile copy of The Voynich Manuscript this fall.  And besides the obvious All Souls connection, our own Deb Harkness wrote the introduction for this book!  Check your favorite book retailers for more details!

Here’s a sneak peek:

Video produced by Yale Press

Another interesting video we found is a documentary about The Voynich Manuscript (posted by Treasure House) and can be found here:

World's Most Mysterious Manuscript ~ The Voynich Code Full Documentary (The Book of Life readers will recognize the name "Kircher", and we get mention of Emperor Rudolf, and Roger Bacon too!)

Monthly Updates
Deb had been bestowing upon us monthly updates on what is happening in her world!  The updates have been chock full of information. If you’d like to stay up to date with Deb’s updates, there are certainly plenty of ways to do that:  Deb's website, her author page on Facebook, and/or go to her website to sign up for email updates (on the home page ... scroll down).  Get the latest delivered straight to your email box!

Fandom News!

September 12 was the anniversary of the first ever AllSoulsCon.  We virtually reminisced about what fun we had that day and looked forward to a future one!

Also, fun news from ASC – in honor of Diana Bishop’s birthday, they gifted the fandom with the enitre 2015 AllSoulsCon video.  Go to  to see the recorded event on-demand.

On August 4, they visited the Penguin USA offices in Manhattan. (We’re hoping that magic is in the air and another Con is brewing!)

The Tenth Knot
TTK went on a field trip to New Haven, CT.  They visited some of the New Haven places from The Book of Life.  You can get the full experience with On the Steps of Matthew and Diana - New Haven, Part I

Daemons Domain
We were quite busy over the summer ourselves, but we managed to hold a series of giveaways!  We’d like to give a hearty congratulations again to our winners – congrats to Wendy, Cheryl, Bailee, and our finale winner, Marie!  We also held a joint one with ASC for Diana's Birthday - Congrats goes to Debbie for that one!

Demonstration (by Aly Davis) of the seemingly impossible pose described in ADOW - pose is called "Fallen Angel"

We had a superb guest writer do a post for us in conjunction with Chapter 8 of A Discovery of Witches – Matthew and Diana’s yoga class together.  Friend, fellow All Souls Reader, and Yogini, Aly Davis brought us into Amira’s class and lead us through with her own yoga expertise. She beautifully breaks down what she believes is the "five most glorious pages of ADOW."  You can read her feature here: Yoga and the All Souls Trilogy.

Last but not least - the season of magic is upon us, and we also have magic of our own brewing – we hope you love what we have in store!  Stay tuned….  (You’ll know sooner than later!)

That's what we have for you this time!

If you are the owner of a website, group, or page, and you'd like to relay something to the All Souls Community, we are talking to you!

Until the next randomly released recap,

Yoga and The All Souls Trilogy - Guest Post

Aly Davis - photo by Jennifer Mahuet
Dear readers, you are in for a treat!  If you are into the real-time reading of A Discovery of Witches, we are creeping up on the time-frame of the wonderful pages detailing Diana and Matthew's yoga sessions with their 'mixed class'!  Perfect!

We connected with Aly on Instagram, and were fascinated with her love of yoga which she expertly communicates through images.  Come to find out, she's an All Souls fan, like us!  We won't call it fate - ah, who are we kidding?  We are not big believers of coincidence! Well, we got together and you are reading the result!

Deborah Harkness' latest update alluded to the fact that the yoga scene may not be in the television series; Deb in her own words: ..."Take the yoga scene, for instance. We all love the yoga scene. It makes us smile due to the absurd perfection of creatures doing yoga. Just try putting this in a script in a way that invites gentle amusement instead of eye-rolling and disdain. Not easily done. I'd rather we all kept it in our mind's eye than ruin it with an awkward on-screen attempt." We are hoping Aly will help you visualize the poses and experience the mood in the scene where Diana and Matthew practiced yoga at Matthew's house in Woodstock.

Without further ado, we present Aly Davis, who shares her thoughts on the threads of yoga that connect to the All Souls Trilogy in her own words.
By Aly Davis

Looking back, I honestly can't remember exactly how I came upon the All Souls Trilogy. If memory serves, a friend with whom I boarded my horse suggested it when I mentioned needing new reading material. As she listed off the book titles, I thought it'd be right up my alley! Little did I know, that I would connect with the series on many more levels than just my superficial love of fantasy and magic. Nor could I ever have anticipated how my relationship with the series, along with the lens through which I read them, would change over the following two and a half years. Now, here I am, writing a guest post for the most amazing three women who love the trilogy as much as I do and for all of you, who I know love it as much as the four of us!  All of this brought about by a connection through social media and yoga.  Pretty cool, right?

During the time of my life when I made my first two trips through ADOW, SON and TBOL, I adored books, magic, fantasy, romance, and horses. I have owned, showed, and ridden my whole life and was thrilled to discover that Deborah Harkness is an avid horsewoman herself! But then she introduced me to a new love: historical fiction.  Up to that point, I had regularly left all adoration of history to my father and his obsession with the Civil War.  His insane ability to memorize dates, places, and historical experiences can easily rival any encyclopedia set or even a professor of history (He's a veterinarian, so science is a thing with him too! And math. And anatomy. He's a genius)!  I had never even considered the fact that I might fall in love with 1590's London, Henry Percy, and all of the little shops in the Blackfriars district on my own terms.

But that wasn't all that the books piqued of my curiosity. For years, I had been curious about the practice of yoga.  Here I was, reading about Diana and Matthew working their way through what sounded like an incredible yoga class with Amira. But what was a vinyasa? It had to be a different language, right? It's in italics! But what language, and what did it all mean?  With my first two reads through the books, I sort of skimmed over the yoga scene.  But as I came back for my third read (a year and a half into my yoga journey), I was able to experience the scene with an entirely new set of eyes. Suddenly, it all made sense! And not just the poses and sequencing; it no longer sounded like a bunch of hippy mumbo-jumbo. I fell just as in love with Amira as I did with Diana and Matthew.  I was able to see the whole series through an entirely new lens: yoga was the answer. To everything! From Diana's power, her control, to Matthew's temper, and the concept of time traveling... but let's not get ahead of ourselves! Embedded here are some photos and videos to help you visualize the poses and and understand the sequences that Amira leads the class through.  Hopefully, this will help you have a better grasp of the scene through visualization.

"Amira took us through some gentle stretches and got us onto our knees to warm up our spines before we pushed back into downward dog. We held the posture for a few breaths before walking our hands to our feet and standing up."
Mountain pose as described in The Discovery of Witches (by Deborah Harkness) demonstrated by Aly Davis

"Root your feet into the earth," she instructed, "and take mountain pose." I concentrated on my feet and felt an unexpected jolt from the floor. My eyes widened."

"We followed Amira as she began her vinyasas.  We swung our arms up toward the ceiling before diving down to place our hands next to our feet.  We rose halfway, spines parallel to the floor, before folding over and shooting our legs back into a pushup position.  Dozens of daemons, vampires, and witches dipped and swooped their bodies into graceful upward curves. We continued to fold and lift, sweeping our arms overhead once more before touching palms lightly together."

[...Read More]

We didn't DARE edit the post down to a smaller bite of the delicious demonstration she served us! It is way too good!  Aly goes on to show us many more poses including, Savasana, Lotus, some standing poses and what may just be that death-defying pose Matthew impressed Diana with!

Combined Update!

Photo: Deborah Harkness
Update from Deb, plus some stuff from us!  From Deb's Facebook page:

The View from My Desk (actually my dining room table): Hitting the Pause Button 

It's time for my monthly update on all things All Souls.

Today is a rarity for me, because I'm taking two days for R&R after some productive meetings about the television adaptation with Bad Wolf in Wales. Two. Whole. Days. We are all going in so many different directions these days. Just taking some well-earned time to rest, reflect, recover, recharge has become a precious luxury and rarity. [ her full post]

That's her update for September! We will archive this under her updates (on the Master Post List), but also under our posts.  We have some things brewing, dear readers!  Huge things!  Huge for us, anyway!  We are not the "teasing" type, but we are bubbling with giddiness with our latest project.  We are really enjoying it, we hope you will as well.

Photo from Wikipedia/Displayed on Broadly article today
You'll see soon enough what we are up to, but also we wanted to mention that we share all different types of pictures/articles/points of interest on social media (very different things on different platforms).  Today on Facebook we shared an article from Broadly.vice, discussing The Malleus Maleficarum, a 15th century witch hunting manual written by Heinrich Kramer.  Check it out here: Witches Allegedly Stole Penises and Kept Them as Pets in the Middle Ages.  So give us a follow on our different social media venues!  You'll never know what you may find!  We posted that article on a whim, and it made the Vampire Daemon think of a post of ours dealing with the same subject: the persecution of women by designating/trying them as witches.  The post was a Weekly Geek from a year ago, and we figured we'd share it again on our Facebook page this morning, but we wanted to mention it here so you can explore our past Geeks!  Read a blast from our geeky past here: Weekly Geek! 'The Discovery of Witches'.  Also, being that it is time-of-year appropriate, take a look at Weekly Geek! Matthew and Mabon.

We also wanted to mention the "share" function on our posts.  If you look below each post (on the desktop version of the site/not available on mobile) you'll see our social share buttons! If you like a piece/post, please share it with your friends on social media!  Thanking you in advance!  We appreciate all of our followers and friends!  Thank you for sticking with us! And until our next post (more sooner than later!), have a fun real-time reading experience this year, and hopefully we can enhance it!

Til next time!

Weekly Geek - Gallowglass!

An All Souls Trilogy Favorite character! - Gallowglass by FetchGoodyAlsop
"Gallowglass" - from FetchGoodyAlsop
Welcome back to Weekly Geek! We wish we could say we were on a lovely summer holiday, but sadly our absence was due to the inconveniences of pesky real-life chores and necessities! Suffice it to say, we have a lot of interesting activities and topics planned for the coming months! We figured it was time to ease our way back into the rabbit hole, and kick off a new season of Weekly Geeks with a ready reference for our favorite Gael, Gallowglass.

First and foremost, Gallowglass is a nickname. The Gaelic term Gallóglaich is made from three words, "gall," a foreigner, "óg" meaning young, and "laoch" meaning a warrior or hero. It came from the position he held when Hugh deClermont, turned him. The gallowglass were an elite class of mercenary soldiers from the Norse-Gaelic clans of Scotland, usually younger sons of noble birth. Gallowglass warriors first arrived in Ireland as part of the dowry of Dougall MacSorley's daughter offered on the occasion of her marriage to Aedh O'Conner in 1259 AD. MacSorley was the King of the Outer Hebrides and O'Conner the King of Connaught. The gallowglass were active in western Scotland for approximately 100 years prior to their arrival in Ireland. They fought for Edward Bruce, amongst others. All facts which may or may not come into play at a later date ;-)

Fun fact: "Gallowglasses" are mentioned in Macbeth. Wonder where Will got that from?! :-)

Doubtful it stood,
As two spent swimmers that do cling together
And choke their art. The merciless Macdonwald—
Worthy to be a rebel, for to that
The multiplying villanies of nature
Do swarm upon him—from the Western Isles
Of kerns and gallowglasses is supplied,
And fortune, on his damnèd quarrel smiling,
Showed like a rebel’s whore.
Act I, Scene 2

Our Gallowglass is definitely from the Outer Hebrides, another fact which may help tie him to the aforementioned dowry, and a potential ancestor.

According to The Book of Life (by Deborah Harkness) Gallowglass' ancestral home The Outer Hebrides
The Outer Hebrides

"It was dawn, and the sun was just rising over the Minch. Gallowglass filled his lungs with the familiar air of home and set about remembering a sight he had often dreamed of: Diana Bishop standing here, on the land of his ancestors".  ~ TBOL, p 291

Gallowglass's given name, Sorley, is revealed during baby Philip's naming ceremony.

"When it was my turn, I lifted Philip to the sky, offering him to the goddess and the elements of fire, air, earth, and water.

"Philip Michael Addison Sorley," Sarah said, "we also welcome you into the world and into our hearts. Go forth knowing that all present will recognize you by this honorable name and hold your life sacred."

The vampires exchanged glances when they heard Philip’s last given name and searched the crowd for Gallowglass. We had chosen Addison because it was my father’s middle name, but Sorley belonged to the absent Gael. I wished he had been able to hear it echo through the trees."

~ TBOL, p 425.

The name "Sorley" is a big clue to his human identity. Sorley is actually an Anglicanized form of the Irish and Scottish Gaelic Somhairle. Somhairle is sometimes Anglicised as Samuel, but they have totally different roots. It was probably another attempt by the English to wipe out Gaelic heritage. Somhairle means summer 'traveler' or 'summer warrior' and comes from the Vikings and their forays into the Orkneys (there's the source of the red hair). The name traces back to Somerled, the King of the Hebrides, and a Celtic hero. Somerled was really interesting because he managed to maintain a foot in the traditional pagan world while helping the early church establish a presence in the Hebrides. There's also Sorley Boy MacDonell who was a pain in Queen Elizabeth's behind.

'"My people were Úlfhéðnar, not berserkers. And I’m only part Norse—the gentle part, if you must know. The rest is Scots, by way of Ireland." "Foul-tempered, the Scots," Hancock added.' ~SON

Gallowglass is NOT a berserker, and he took it as a huge insult to be mistaken for one. After reading the description, you can't blame him. It sounds just like blood rage! Talk about a vampire fighting words!

Berserkers are warriors from Old Norse literature. They are described as fighting in a nearly uncontrollable, hypnotic fury -- a characteristic which later gave rise to the English word berserk. These Viking champions would often go into battle without mail-coats. The Úlfhéðnar (singular Úlfheðinn), another term associated with berserkers, mentioned in the Vatnsdæla saga, Haraldskvæði and the Völsunga saga, were said to wear the pelt of a wolf when they entered battle. Úlfhéðnar are sometimes described as Odin's special warriors: "[Odin's] men went without their chain mail and were mad as hounds or wolves...they slew men, but neither fire nor iron had effect upon them."

From The Book of Life by Deborah Harkness - A picture of the cargo ship "Earl of Pembroke" - "One of Gallowglass’s most treasured possessions—a tattered eighteenth-century Red Ensign that he and Davy Hancock had stripped from their beloved cargo ship the Earl of Pembroke before it was refitted and renamed Endeavour—was balled up on the floor. " ~TBOL, p258

"One of Gallowglass’s most treasured possessions—a tattered eighteenth-century Red Ensign that he and Davy Hancock had stripped from their beloved cargo ship the Earl of Pembroke before it was refitted and renamed Endeavour—was balled up on the floor. " ~TBOL, p258

The most interesting thing about the Earl of Pembroke was her design - a flat-bottom made her well-suited for sailing in shallow waters and allowed her to be run aground for loading and unloading of cargo. A ship like this would also lend itself to any number of surreptitious missions at the behest of Philippe de Clermont and other piratical off-the-books trips.  As the Endeavour, it carried Captain Cooke on his voyage to Australia.  Whether our favorite Gael was with him is up for debate.  More about those pesky shipwrecks at another time!
