If after reading dark thrillers and fantasies, this is the sorbet to cleanse the palate. I enjoy short stories, I enjoy the stories that Esther Freisner edits the best. Some may only make you smile, some will have you laughing out loud. None disappoint. It was delightful to find this anthology. If you've not read any of these or been put off by the punnish titles, do yourself a favour, order them. You'll have a great read. Witch Way to the Mall

Outstanding shorts 26 Oct 2009
By G. Robinson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback Verified Purchase
The is the first in apparently a series. "Strip Mauled" is the follow on and is excellent as well. The stories in this anthology are humorous and whimsical by and large. But a number of them leave me going OK so what happens next and all are outstanding to truly excellent. I am not usually a big fan of shorts as they are very hard to write well and often vary widely; from pretty good to real bad.. These 2 books are outstanding exceptions as there are no bad stories.

Excellent read.

What a great read! 5 Jun 2009
By Donna Gooding Rossi - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
A quick and enjoyable read of excellent short stories set in the suburbs. Creative idea. My favorite, so far, is Vierling's "Neighborhood Witch" - love the characters, story line, and the surprise ending. Well worth it.

Witch Moms in SUVs 22 Sep 2009
By Arthur W. Jordin - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Witch Way to the Mall (2009) is the first fantasy anthology in a series of supernatural stories about suburbia. It contains an Introduction and twenty-one short stories (with author information).

The Introduction by Esther M. Friesner provides background on the myths about the suburbs and examples of how witches could change things.

Birdwitching by Harry Turtledove concerns the trials of neighborhood bird watching clubs in an annual contest for the highest bird count in a single day. Tension is high, but then the spells start to fly.

Witch Warrior by Steven Piziks concerns a man witch and Celtic warrior left alone when Baba Yaga comes to take his adopted children.

Nimue and the Mall Nymphs by Lee Martindale involves a seasoned witch who finds three wannabes in the mall trying to hex an ex-boyfriend.

Tacos for Tezcathpoca by Kevin Andrew Murphy describes some unusual events in the life of a teenager who buys a manticore at a yard sale.

The Darren by Hildy Silverman speaks of prejudice and two youngsters who learn tolerance.

The Incident of the Inferno Grill by Sarah A. Hoyt tells of an unemployed woman who finds a job as an assistant to a psychic investigator.

Soot by Dave Freer considers the actions of an ancient Egyptian cat, a Grecian prophetess, a werewolf, and a troll in the warding of a portal from the Fey world.

The House of Lost Dreams by Storm Christopher examines the dreams of a salesman.

Queen of Suburbia by Selina Rosen is about chain emails and the risks of passing them on to friends.

Twice a Year by Esther M. Friesner shows the reaction of a neighborhood witch to an interloper. It involves valentines.

Neighborhood Witch by David Vierling exposes suburban cliques and related violence.

Hex Education by K. D. Wentworth also examines neighborhood hierarchies and appropriate countermeasures.

The Importance of Communication by Jan and S. M. Stirling reveals the hazards of teenage cliques.

Midnight at the Center Court by David D. Levine portrays the power of certain friendships.

The Price of Beauty by Robin Wayne Bailey illustrates the possible effects of advertising hype.

Making Love by Brenda W. Clough discloses the power of sympathetic magic and empathy.

Yo Moms a Dragon by Ellie Tupper displays the power of witchcraft and the hazards of misinformation.

Witch's Brew by Berry Kercheval is a tale of a witch's apprentice who accidentally summons an imp.

The Fair Witch Project by Daniel M. Hoyt considers ways that teenage boy witches might rebel against their parents and the consequences of such pranks.

Valley Witch by Julia S. Mandala presents the woes of a young noble removed from his preparatory school and transported to this dimension. Even worse than attending public highschool, he also has his mother in most of his classes.

There's No "I" in "Coven" by Jody Lynn Nye relates a tale of a jock mom and her two athletic kids at a sporting event involving magic.

These stories cover the gambit of suburban witchery, including one set in a London suburb. In most cases, the witch is the hero/heroine, but two have BAD witches as the antagonists. Do any of these villains remind you of anyone in your neighborhood?

This anthology is not much like the Chick in Chainmail series, but has the same sense of fun and weirdness. The next volume in the series -- Strip Mauled -- has werewolves as the theme. Read and enjoy!

Recommended for Friesner fans and for anyone else who enjoys tales of witchcraft, suburban living, and human relationships.

Great 6 Jun 2009
By Jacob A. Rummel - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Great read, good for when you want to read something but don't want to spend hours reading. Really liked "Neighborhood Witch" and actually wished there was more time to develop the people and situation but considering it's a short story I feel the author did a great job with the time they had.

A witch is a witch is a witch 21 Sep 2009
By Elaine C McTyer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback Verified Purchase
These stories are about modern witches, who live in the real world. They have kids, and cars, and husbands, who are either able to use magic, or not. I found them entertaining and some were downright funny. Some were just stories. Like any anthology, some are good and some are not. But overall this is worth the time and money. I did enjoy it.
