We’ve all read the list, or we may have read a few, but how much do we really know about the genre?
The short answer is that it’s hard to really know, because it’s so varied and vast.
For one thing, there are a lot of books that don’t fit neatly into any one category.
There are a few titles that have a story about a witch that’s actually not about witches in general, but about the witch in a particular era.
Others are stories about people who live in a world where witchcraft is not as important, but where the concept is still very relevant.
There’s a book about an American town where people have a witch, and it’s the only place in the world that people have heard of it, but that witch was killed by a white woman.
The book is about an old woman who tries to protect her house from a ghost and a witch.
There are a couple of books in which the witch is a girl, or an adult who is raised by a witch and who comes to live with the townspeople and is not particularly interested in witchcraft.
And then there are books that deal with witchcraft in the past and in the present.
“My god,” said my father as we stood on a corner and took in the landscape, “that’s a pretty good list.
I bet there are more.”
