      A collection of 14 original short stories, each involving a witch in some way. Some are from a witch’s viewpoint, others are from the viewpoint of people encountering witches.

    A WITCH AT RANDOM -- If you're a man who isn't superstitious and you come face to face with a witch, what then? Johnny Random was just such a man.

    WITCH RING -- What if a down and out drunk, the lowliest dreg of society finds an artifact that changes his life? And what does he do when the owner of that artifact shows up and asks for it back?

    WITCH HEART -- Can an ordinary man hold his own against a witch in the full bloom of her powers? If she wants him and refuses to let him go, can he possibly escape?

    THE AMBITIOUS SORCERESS OF CALANDRA -- What happens when a cute, young "wood witch" crosses paths with a powerful sorceress who feels threatened by her?

    THE PRINCESS WITCH OF MANDALONE -- When your witch powers are overdue, and you suspect you're going to live out your life as an ordinary human, do you accept your fate? Not if you're Princess Eletheria.

    PASSING THE TORCH -- Not all witches are good. And when a rogue coven directs their energies towards destroying the woman Steve loves, watch out!

    GRANNY PATCHES AND LITTLE DEMON -- Take a mischievous almost-witch whose granny is a super power and throw in a lascivious bastard who has bilked her mom, add in a demi-being who isn't supposed to be on earth, and stand back!

    CLOTHILDE -- What if a true healer is forced by circumstances to join a coven in order to be "legitimate" as a mid-wife? And what if the leader of said coven discovers the healer's deception?

    ALOHA MAN -- Arrogance can be a man's undoing. Of course that doesn't apply to Aloha Johnson -- not until he crosses paths with the wrong witch.

    ABIGAIL -- Young female witches are best left alone. Above all, don't take a hunting party into her forest and start killing her animals.

    WILD RIDE -- A mean step-mother and a bratty step-brother make life a challenge for Maggie, until she runs into an inter-dimensional friend who awakens a few powers she didn't realize she had.

    NATURAL MAN -- Beautiful witches shouldn't pick on librarians, not even when said librarian is a Natural Man.

    A VERY OLD WITCH -- Not all witches are women. You might not recognize the occasional male witch because of his disguise. But if you do meet him, it might pay to be nice.

    DOCTOR, DOCTOR -- What if a witch never reveals herself and just quietly goes about "doing her thing" and living a normal life. She might be anyone, even your best friend.

    CRIES IN THE NIGHT -- When is a witch not a witch? What if she has only one goal in life, dictated by messages she receives from children in pain? Is she a witch or something else?
