Gordon Whites delightful Southern Gothic Hair Shirt Drag serves as an amuse-bouche for this anthology and lets you know from the start that you wont be reading your typical old witch stories.

The tales of Wrapped in Black span from the Inquisition to a dark and gritty future and range from dying farmland in middle-America to seemingly typical sprawling suburbs. There I found witches trashy, wicked, and wise whom I loved, hated, and pitied.

In Unto the Earth, Patrick C. Greene reminded me that the

I have always loved stories about witches and Wrapped In Black is like manna from heaven for me! It is filled with thirteen gloriouslyevilspell binding stories of witches in all forms. Each story is dark and deals with different types of witches in different cultures. There are Witches and WarlocksBrujas and Voduiststhere is a secret society for men only who have no idea who they have called upon. Each story is filled with its own magic that will leave you with chills and the hair on the back of ...more

This edition of Wrapped In has exceeded itself with the caliber of author included, the stories and the editing lay out.

I am not sure how Sekhmet is going to follow on from this but I sure hope they do, I will be first in line to buy it.


Hair Shirt Drag by Gordon White: Jesse, or Sissy to his non-friends, is a backwoods, Southern, effeminate, cross-dressing Witch and is even a little strange even for each of those sub groups. He comes from a long line of Overhold women who have the gift, each use

Wrapped In Black, by Sekhmet Press

Short Take: Sometimes you get your wish, and sometimes, your wish gets you..

Note: I was gifted an advance copy of Wrapped in Black in exchange for an honest review. So, below are my honest opinions!

Ive said it before, Ive never been a fan of the short story. My preference for oversized novels is pretty well-known. Lately, though, Ive started to re-think my position. Maybe its that Im getting older, and my patience and attention span arent what they used to be.

A new depth of black

The initiation to Wrapped in Black sets the tone of chaotic energy found in the black arts, woven throughout the following thirteen tales of witches and the occult. Mrs. Greenes well-crafted introduction predicts a collection with the potential to spin in any direction, which it does by virtue of excellent prose and unconventional plot. All of the stories come with a finely honed eye for detail and offer unique twists on an old theme. Based on story selection and arrangement,

I am a big fan of Sekhmet Press and their WRAPPED Series. Wrapped in Black is the third anthology in the series and the focus this time is witches and the occult. I will admit, witches arent my favorite characters to read about. I rarely find myself drawn to a book because its about witches, like I am with books about vampires or time travel. But Sekhmet has yet to disappoint me with their anthologies, so I was very happy to read this one!

Once again, editor Jennifer Greene has put together a

Let me start off by saying I am a Pagan who has dealt with Witchcraft in my time from the hard core bad to the times of wonder and successful magic. I've seen so many take this subject and treat like it was gossamer sequins with very little thought and little research - just some fodder for a book. Wrapped in Black strikes me as stories well thought out and presented whether humorous, creepy as hell, heart touching, adventure in the face of danger, and one a bad case of summoning a ____ (can't ...more

I read this collection because I really needed a Patrick C. Greene fix, "great story by the way!" I stayed for the rest of the stories, all of which I loved, but I'll admit that my absolute favorite short was Hair Shirt Drag, by Gordon White. Excellent story, Gordon! Best line ever was "Abracadabra b***he's! A witchy drag queen! Too much! Yep, I'd recommend this collection.
