Overview

Ten witchcraft stories by ten authors, edited by Rayne Hall

If you meet a witch, will you know if they're the kind or the evil sort? If you hear about someone practising witchcraft, how do you judge if their magic is real? If rumours spread through your neighbourhood or mass hysteria sweeps through your community, will you be able to keep a clear head? If the only way to solve your problem is by resorting to witchcraft, will you desist or give it a try?

In this book, all the witches are real. They practice different kinds of witchcraft: Traditional, Stregheria, Santeria, Wicca and more. Some are good, some are evil, and others are in between, so beware of jumping to early conclusions.

Ten authors share their visions of witches and witchcraft, and each tells their story in a different writing style. To reflect the authors' individual voices, you will find both American and British English words and spellings in this book.

See which story of these ten resonates most with you. Enjoy the tales - but be warned: these witches may not be what they seem.

    Where do I begin with this one? So much to say but without givin

    Where do I begin with this one? So much to say but without giving away the stories :) I thought when I finished reading Bites: Ten Tales of Vampires, that this wouldn't hold a candle to that. Oh how wrong I was. The short stories in this book were just as enticing and fun to read as the first.

    I love the different takes on the idea of what a witch is in each story. I appreciate also that it teaches you and forces you to think about the different kinds of practices in this magic(k)al world. For example, in Debra Dunbar's "Love Magick," the author explains the difference and common misconceptions about wiccans and witches, black and white magic and magic and magick. Makes for an interesting read.

    The aforementioned story by Dunbar really pulls you into the story and makes you empathize with the characters. It makes me see some of myself in the main character Blossom, (minus the wicca practices) and made me reminisce on my high school days. Certain periods in the story, I wanted to cry for Blossom and I got happy and couldn't help smiling when she was happy. Who knows? Maybe I'm just a sucker for romance lol.

    When the last story ended, I was kind of sad because it seems that as the stories went on, the book got better and better and actually progressed in excitement. This is another great collection of stories and kudos to Rayne Hall for selecting such great pieces of literary work! Makes it hard to choose just one favorite.

    Pick up a copy on Amazon here: Beltane: Ten Tales of Witchcraft. You won't regret it!
