A bewitching brew of stories sure to enchant.

Surrounded by the aura of magic, witches have captured our imaginations for millennia and fascinate us now more than ever.

No longer confined to the image of a hexing old crone, witches can be kindly healers and protectors, tough modern urban heroines, holders of forbidden knowledge, sweetly domestic spellcasters, darkly domineering, sexy enchantresses, ancient sorceresses, modern Wiccans, empowered or persecuted, possessors of supernatural abilities that can be used for good or evil — or perhaps only perceived as such.

Welcome to the world of witchery in many guises: wicked, wild, and wonderful. Includes two original, never-published stories.

    I’m up for a good horror anthology. I’m into some HP Lovecraft stories now and those short stories are getting me ready for more horror in short story form. The witches anthology sounds like a sure thing!
