4. THE CAT MAIDEN by Mertianna Georgia – This kitty cat is a lot more than what she seems.
5. THE MAY LADY VANISHES by Pamela Turner – A missing witch may tear this coven apart.
6. HANGING WITCH OF PAINTER MOUNTAIN by Lawrence Barker – On Painter Mountain, your lust for life or death is measured.
7. THIRTEEN STEPS by Debbie Christiana – The past returns, seeking justice.
8. FOUR BONY HANDS by Rayne Hall – Nasty things sometimes come in small packages.
9. MISHMASH MAGICK by Carole Ann Moleti – Surviving in The Bronx requires new ways of doing things.
10. LOVE MAGICK by Debra Dunbar – Sometimes magic will only show you what was there all along.
One of the stories that I really enjoyed was ALBA by Karen Heard. As young girls are dyeing seemingly without cause, Sargent Taylor must discover who is behind the murders. He knows that Wiccans are people who worship nature. Could there be a connection with the twig and ice dolls left at the scenes? After the dismissal of Selma did he dare consider the world of witchcraft?
