Synopsis:

Wickedly fun short stories featuring witches, werewolves, limericks that can change fate, and a sinister vine bent on murder and the destruction of Alabama! Inside quirky settings with creepy plots, characters discover new and unsettling powers as their worst fears manifest.

Let these stories draw you in with their lighthearted tone -- then delight you with their wickedly sly sense of humor. You’ll laugh, you’ll shudder, you’ll think twice about taking a deal from a bucktoothed woman.


Featuring pieces previously published in such magazines as Andromeda Spaceways Inflight Magazine, Beyond Centauri, and AlienSkin, as well as a never before published short.

My rating: ★★★☆☆

I was really looking forward to reading this, but it was not what I expected. The title says "Wickedly Fun," but most stories ended on a rather depressing note...while others were just plain odd. I suppose the stories were just not my cup of tea, you know? Don't get me wrong, some of the stories were quite entertaining and funny (and sometimes even shocking)!

The short stories were well written with some very descriptive and interesting scenes. I thought the characters were intriguing, yet I couldn't really connect with them.

This book, I would say, was an in-between book--a book I neither loved nor hated. Overall, it was entertaining and a quick read with some supernatural aspects, which I always love in a book.
