Review

I liked every single story and found so many new series and authors to try, it was crazy. That is just something that doesn't normally happen when you pick up a book like this.
Usually you are lucky if you like half the stories and more than likely you only picked it up to begin with becuase of that one author you just love and have to suffer through the rest of the stories.
Not this book, this book was chalked full of great stories, wonderful characters and some pretty fantastic writing and while I did manly read this book because of one author, Barbra Annino, all of the authors did a fantastic book on the stories in this book.
So, my overall consensus? This book was awesome. It was full of very wonderful talented writers that you really really need to try. Also the beautiful cover and foreword was written by the very talented Amanda Hocking. If you haven't picked up any of her books, please check them out also, they are fabulous reads!! She has more than series and a little bit that will appeal to everyone!

This is a collection of short stories, all with a basically Halloween feel. But the horror is tongue in cheek and not nasty. I try to avoid real horror and loved them all for that reason.

If you want something that is different and interesting, give this collection a try. I am going to be looking for the main books of several of the authors. This is also a great way to give them a try, benefit a great charity, and enjoy some interesting little stories.

I think this book can be recommended for men, women and teens. It would appeal to all readers.

This is truly one of the best anthologies I have ever read.
There is a little bit of everything in here and I think any lover of the paranormal will really enjoy these short stories.
Some of my favorite authors are in here and some that I think, after reading this, will soon become favorites.
And with the proceeds going to a very good cause, everyone really should purchase this book and give it a try.

Normally You pick up an Anthology like "Every Witch Way but Wicked" because you like one of the authors. That's exactly why I bought this. Besides it was inexpensive and I read, somewhere, part of the profits go to a charity. I was surprised that so many of these were good stories and I'll go look at other stuff they have published. Not all were works of wonder and a few of them left me feeling like I was dumped in the middle chapter of a book. But they were all interesting, mostly well written and, as I said, I've got some new authors to look at. Don't expect classic works that will still be in schools in 40 years; but most were nice, short, stories. If you like one of the authors - or want to give the wicca-voodoo genre a try, this book is a good place to get your feet wet. I went looking for Debora Geary's story: "A Samhain Surprise" and she didn't disappoint. If you want to try other stuff of hers, you can try: A Modern Witch (A Modern Witch Series: Book 1) or one of her short 'Novella's (~70 pages) Matchmakers 2.0 (A Novel Nibbles title) as a good first introduction.

I'm not familiar with the other writers so I can't make a recommendation - but I'm sure Amazon has them someplace. Happy Reading!

I enjoyed this collection. Each of the author has a different way of telling a story, which creates a delightful mix of styles.

My personal favourites were "The Hazards of Desire" by Wren Emerson because of its imaginative and convincing world-building, and "Cats and Dogs" by JL Bryan because its so funny.

I was confused by the multi-chapter stories; it wasn't entirely clear if those were meant as sample excerpts from novels or as standalone stories. I assume they were stand-alones,and read them as such, but the lengthy author biographies and book information sections gave the impression I was reading a promotional sampler.

I purchased this book from Amazon.co.uk.

I am a fan of many of the authors in this compilation. The short stories are enough to whet you palate and make you wish for more.
I like how some of the stories pick up where the authors have left off in their series.
The book is a fun read and at 99 cents it can't be beat. Plus the fact it goes to help charity makes it even better.
Wouldn't it be great if they came out with more books for all the major Sabbats! (HINT HINT) :)
My favorites authors so far(working on reading the rest):
Barbra Annino
Debora Geary
Misty Evans
Christiana Miller
Rose Pressey
Edie Ramer
Terri Reid

Like most anthologies I found some stories I felt more drawn to than others but I think that's a fundamental part of multiple authors' work all piled together.

I got a little tired of how many stories were a part of the author's other work. Many feature the adventures of side characters or something a heroine was up to between novels. This might not have bothered me if it hadn't been the rule rather than the exception or if I had read most of the novels in question rather than this being my introduction.

I felt that Debroa Geary's A Samhain Surprise was a little too abrupt, especially for those of us who are not familiar with Geary's fictional universe. I felt like I was missing part of the narrative but in spite of this I still liked it. Camilla Chafer's The Trouble with Spells seemed a little flippant and I spent more time feeling sorry for the character who caused the drama than I probably was supposed to.

Even with these annoyances I enjoyed most of the stories. I loved how many had dogs in them! Not something you normally find in a story about witches and Halloween. Wren Emerson's The Hazards of Desire was sad but fascinated me, something I encourage in my short stories! Riana's Revenge by Dale Mayer presented a magic society I was curious to learn more about. I felt it ended on a weird note though others might not agree with me but I think the strength of the rest of the story outweighs that complaint.

But my two favorites had to be Edie Ramer's The Kiss and Terri Reid's Orion's Moon. The Kiss suffered a little from my first issue, it's a glimpse of larger story, but the characters were vibrant and I liked the mythology sitting alongside aliens.
