A collection of more than fifty stories about witches from around the world. There are tales of banshees, crones and beauties in disguise from China, Siberia, the Caribbean, Armenia, Portugal and Australia. The characters featured include Italy's Witch Bea-Witch, Lilith, Kali, and Twitti Glyn Hec. Alluring women, enchantresses, wise old ladies and bewitching women: they are all here and ready to haunt, entice, possess, transform, challenge - and sometimes even to help.

Shahrukh Husain writes fiction, non-fiction and scripts for children and adults. She is passionate about world mythology and folklore which provides a link between her two jobs: writing and psychoanalysis and claims to have been in the thrall of witches since childhood. She was born in Karachi, Pakistan and lives in London.
