Witchy Fiction

Beskrivelse
"Up on their brooms the witches stream, / Crooked and black in the crescent's gleam; / One foot high, and one foot low, / Bearded, cloaked and cowled they go..." —Walter de la Mare, "The Ride-by-Nights" *** Many are the images of the witch, and many the different depictions in our literature. Our List of the Month this October is devoted to Witchy Fiction—just in time for Halloween! Each participant may vote on ten titles. Please only downvote titles if they do not fit the theme, and do not include witches.
