The Fearing by John F.D. Taff
"A sneaking suspicion began to grow that I was going to be unsatisfied with this ending but as I cleared page 80, a new feeling began to emerge and My doubt and skepticism were replaced with an urgency to see this one through to the end.

“Why do you persist in this belief that punishment must be meted out from either God or Satan when the most relentless, merciless punisher is that within? For we can never escape its scourges and lashes.”
John F.D. Taff, The Bell Witch

“I know death. Intimately. And there is no part of it that is cute and cozy.”
John F.D. Taff, Little Black Spots

“Does one ever know what another is capable of doing at his or her best?”
John F.D. Taff, Little Black Spots

Polls

As I mentioned, I wanted to read a witch themed book for our scary October read. However, I had a bit of trouble finding really scary witch themed books, but that's okay. We'll just go with mildly creepy...perhaps. This is a quick poll, as my Season of the Witch event at Castle Macabre hinges on this pick. Last day to vote is this Sunday.
