This was my Halloween season read this year, an anthology commissioned for the Barnes & Noble stores in 1995. There are indeed one hundred stories in this hefty tome, averaging about six pages. They are not all about wicked witches, however–some witches are good, some are just mischievous and others are hard to pin down on a moral spectrum.

The volume opens with “Gramma Grunt” by Donald L. Burleson, about a man returning to the streets of his youth and regretting joining in the taunting of an
If you are looking a for a positive book about witchcraft, that would include only about one story in eight of the ones in this book. But if you like tight, well-written short stories, the percentage goes way up.

This book reminded me why I used to enjoy reading anthologies so much in my younger days. The best of the stories are quite tasty, and the lesser lights are over quickly and on to the next one. Many of the stories revolve around poetic justice, or simply revenge. If you're old enough to

I am still working my way through these mostly very short witch stories, but I am enjoying it enought to give it a thumbs up here. This is my Halloween season reading this year (I might add some other stuff, too). Basically, it's a wide mix of tales of witchcraft -- some scary, some funny, some grotesque, etc. A mixed bag, as most anthologies are, but fun stuff.
This is an excellent book full of stories of good, bad and mediocre witches. Some are creepy, some are funny but they're all worth reading. Especially if you're like me and love this stuff.
In a mix of urban fantasy and horror these are short shorts with an average of 6 pages per story some are longer and some are shorter. They're a good mix and I enjoyed most of them.
Stories were varied in quality. Its quite a think book, so best to take breaks and read something in between. Some promoted negative stereotypes.
So far a mix of some good and not so good stories. Good book to read a story or two in bed at night.
Like any collection of short stories, this one was hit-or-miss, but there are still a few gems.

Read a few stories...and they were good. I just want to let someone else have the book :)

Very interesting, eclectic and sometimes disturbing collection of witch-themed short stories.
An enormous compilation of witchy stories, some good, some less so, but overall an enjoyable lot.
So far decent. Its good to read if you want a short story before bed.

My story "The Good Witch of the North Wing" is in this book.
Some of the short stories are really creepy.

Some of the stories are good but not all
