Overview

- Surrounded by the aura of magic, witches have captured our imagination 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!

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
The arrival of two eccentric women in a straight-laced, "historic" neighborhood causes unexpected changes in Delia Sherman's comic tale of witchery ("Walpurgis Afternoon"), while Kelly Link offers a look at witchcraft's dark side in "Catskin." The 23 tales gathered here feature a wide variety of magic wielders, from the witches of Andre Norton's "Witch World" series ("The Way Wind") to Elizabeth Bear's story of a blacksmith who works magic through his forge ("The Cold Blacksmith"). Other contributors include Tanith Lee, Mercedes Lackey, Richard Parks, Neil Gaiman, and Jane Yolen. VERDICT Fans of stories involving witches as well as those who enjoy well-told fantasy should appreciate the strength of this themed collection.
