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.
