Overview

Move over, urban fantasy—here comes suburban fantasy. What self-respecting witch, vampire, or werewolf would be caught dead—or undead—anywhere but the Big City, you may ask Look, let's give the uncanny crew a little credit for intelligence: If they had the smarts to see the advantage in packing up and moving into the cities, why wouldn't they have the smarts to move out of said cities if it looked like they could get a better quality-of-life/death elsewhere (Tough enough going about your otherworldly business and evading the occasional mob wielding halogen torches and designer pitchforks, but have you ever seen city real estate prices )

So let's welcome our first group of supernatural suburbanites, the witches. Their powers are awesome, their methods of coping with the lumps, bumps, and idiosyncrasies of Suburbia are ingenious, and they always bring the loveliest gingerbread to the PTA bake sale. But whatever you do, don't try telling them that life in a non-city setting is bland, banal and boring, or you might get turned into . . . ribbit!

Stories of suburban sorcery by Harry Turtledove, Sarah A. Hoyt, Jan and S.M. Stirling, K. D. Wentworth, and more—including Esther Friesner herself.

    Not nearly as good as "Chick in Chainmail" series

    Perhaps it is the chosen theme of the volume, but its stories just didn't feel as funny, original, witty or even interesting to me. Sorry, Mrs. Friesner. I'll wait for your next collection.

    Great fun and a broad range of first rate authors.

    A rollicking send-up of suburban America: a riding lawnmower chase scene, a housewife who knits so much more than yarn, a food fight at an elite private school "witch" turns magical indeed, and much more. Friesner is a master of mixing established writers and the best of the up and coming authors. Don't miss this gem.

    Shorts from several worthy authors

    There are some top quality fantasy writers in this first of a series, you'll find several authors to fulfill your next book purchase requirements with Witch Way. There's funny, sassy, serious, intense and just pure raw hilarious in this book; I normally don't like short stories, (not enough time to develop characters) but this book is the creme de la creme and nearly each story is a hit.
