Wrapped in Black: ThirteenTales of Witches and the Occult
Read in November, 2014
I am a big fan of Sekhmet Press and their WRAPPED Series. Wrapped in Black is the third anthology in the series and the focus this time is witches and the occult. I will admit, witches aren’t my favorite characters to read about. I rarely find myself drawn to a book because it’s about witches, like I am with books about vampires or time travel. But Sekhmet has yet to disappoint me with their anthologies, so I was very happy to read this one!
WRAPPED IN WHITE: Thirteen Tales of Spectres, Ghost, and Spirits
After reading Wrapped in Red, a vampire anthology released by Sekhmet Press, I was very excited to hear about Wrapped in White: Thirteen Tales of Spectres, Ghosts, and Spirits. As a lover of ghost stories, this was a wonderful collection. The perfect kind of tales to read around a campfire. I was very pleased to see two of my favorite authors (Allison M. Dickson, author of STRINGS, and Patrick C. Greene, author of PROGENY) had contributed to the anthology. I also discovered some authors I was unfamiliar with who had some amazing stories in the anthology.
Here’s the breakdown, in TOC order.
Daddy’s Glasses by Allison M. Dickson
This is Dickson at her best. Great imagery, amazing character development, and her remarkable skill at grabbing the reader and never letting go. There’s a reason she’s one of my favorite authors, and this story is the perfect example of her talent.
