9780425186091: Witches' Brew

Throughout history and throughout cultures, witches have always enthralled us. Be they good witches or bad witches, ancient sorcerers or modern-day Wiccans, their aura of magic, nature, and power is irresistible. Here, the greatest authors of all time are gathered together to stir up a little trouble. From Shakespeare’s Wyrd Sisters in Macbeth to Dean Koontz’s doddering old crone in “Snatcher” to Erica Jong’s Mother Goddess in “Smoke,” these works of prose and poetry capture the witch in all her guises: wicked, empowering, romantic, and pagan.

 

No longer relegated to fairy tale villains, witches have become potent personifications of feminine power—and have found a place in every genre of writing.  So, leave your preconceived notions at the door and dive headfirst into Witches’ Brew, the ultimate collection of witch literature.

 

Let the world’s greatest writers put you under a spell...

About the Author:

Yvonne Jocks writes historical romance novels as well as her academic work like editing the reprint anthology, A Witch's Brew. She is a member of the Covenant of Unitarian Universalist Pagans.

From Publishers Weekly:

Aimed at a popular audience but with an impressive contributors' list is Witches' Brew, edited by Yvonne Jocks. The volume boasts bewitching tales from the likes of Erica Jong, Louise Erdrich and Kathryn Ptacek, along with pieces from such unusual sources as Cotton Mather, Ben Franklin and theosophist H.P. Blavatsky. Readers should know that August Derleth wrote "Witches' Hollow" based on a note by H.P. Lovecraft, contrary to the editorial claim that Derleth completed an unfinished Lovecraft tale.
