(Yes, it's a pun.)

First off, Phillip Rickman, The Cure of Souls. Aaronovitch says
I heard about Phil Rickman's rural fantasy/mysteries when his agent rejected me and cited him as the reason. They said that they already had their supernatural mystery writer, thank you very much, and wouldn't be needing another.
Silly silly agent. There's no overlap at all between a male copper/ apprentice magician in London and a female Anglican priest-cum-exorcist in Herefordshire. There isn't even a magic *system* in Rickman.
