Witch Tales

“Horror stories show that the control we believe we have is merely an illusion.” -Clive Barker *** Herb looked at the house and whistled as he got out of the car. “Are you sure this woman’s not a real witch?” he said. “Who else would live here?” Herb’s wife shushed him.

American Gothic

 “True love is like a ghost: Everyone talks of it, but few have met it face to face.” -Francois de La Rochefoucauld *** "I should warn you about my family. You may be in for a bit of a shock."

The Love God

“Gods should be exempt from human passions.” -Euripides, “The Bacchae” *** Eros arrived. He could already tell he had quite a mess on his hands.

Devil's Work

"And the LORD said unto Satan, Whence comest thou? Then Satan answered the LORD, and said, From going to and fro in the earth, and from walking up and down in it." -Job, 1:7 *** It happened because of the heat.

The Changeling Baby

"Come away, O human child! To the waters and the wild With a faery, hand in hand, For the world's more full of weeping than you can understand." -WB Yeats, "The Stolen Child" *** William didn't tell anyone that the baby spoke to him.
