About This Book
Witches is a short story anthology featuring stories by Mercedes Lackey, Neil Gaiman, Usula Le Guin, and Jane Yolen among others.
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!
