Review of 'M Is for Magic' on 'Goodreads'

5 stars

These short stories are little masterpieces. I was particularly taken in by the story about the witch in the graveyard, and the Instructions at the end had special meaning to me in my current situation.
"When you come back, return the way you came. Favors will be returned, debts be repaid. [...] And then go home. Or make a home. Or rest."
