Good Southern Witches

(from the preface)

The most accessible of supernatural entities, arguably even more so than ghosts, the witch is a wildflower, ready to thrive anywhere she chooses to take root.

She might be a force of nature, a mother, a maiden, a crone. Or she might not be a she at all, manifesting instead as a non-binary person, or a young boy looking to understand how he fits in in a man's world. She is the knowing outsider, the cunning killer, the healing center, the avenger of the disenfranchised, and patriarchy's perennial scapegoat.

Sometimes she acts as a window on other realities. Sometimes she stands as the dam holding these alien realities back.

In this volume, she's dug her roots deep into the soil of the American Southeast. Here, you'll find Baba Yaga reimagined as a Southern socialite, Kentucky granny witches, Texas water witches, Tennessee tricksters, North Carolina guardians, Georgia killers, Mississippi virgins, and Louisiana whores.

This collection is a love letter to the witch, in all her glorious and fearsome incarnations, because-you have to admit-even when she's wicked, she's still damned good.

Some of the stories in this collection include elements of violence, violence against children, sexual assault, consensual sex, and profanity. It is a book about witches after all.
