A Paranormal Life
by Marcus F. Griffin

Llewellyn.com - September 2013

Is it possible to have so many paranormal experiences in a lifetime that we come to view them as commonplace? Marcus F. Griffin, author of Playing with the Devil, certainly believes so. Here he details his life of experiences "beyond normal explanation," including those he had as a member of his rock band Entropy, who dealt with a powerful, mysterious force they dubbed, "The Gray Man."

Llewellyn.com - Author Interview - September 2013

by Llewellyn

1.Your first book was Extreme Paranormal Investigations, which detailed some of the more disturbing investigations you had conducted with WISP (Witches in Search of the Paranormal). Playing with the Devil is instead your own personal story. What compelled you to write a personal story rather than writing about the haunting experiences of others? 

The simple answer to this question is that I finally felt that it was time to tell our story. But where the paranormal is concerned, nothing is really "simple," is it? My impetus to write the story of Entropy and the Gray Man was born more from need than desire. The amazing and oftentimes terrifying paranormal events we experienced have left a lasting impression on my life and have haunted me for over thirty years now. My authorship finally presented me with a venue to be able to pass along my memories and experiences to a larger audience, and doing so has been quite cathartic. I also felt that the story of Entropy and the Gray Man had broad implications and was far too astonishing to not be chronicled and revealed to the rest of the world.

2. Playing with the Devil details the real-life experiences of you and your band, Entropy, as you dealt with paranormal forces that threatened to tear you apart. When did you first realize that you were dealing with a force that was potentially evil?

I'll preface the answer to this question by saying that not all of the members of Entropy believed that the entity we came to call the Gray Man was "evil." Although it is true that several of my bandmates did in fact come to believe that the Gray Man was none other than Satan himself, I have never personally believed this to be true. The entity that made contact with us was powerful without question, but in my opinion a better word to describe the Gray Man would be "manipulative" rather than evil. Over time it became clear to the five of us that in one form or another the Gray Man was using the members of Entropy for its own agenda and to fulfill a specific objective.
