About The Book
Meet Anita Thompson: she’s young, she’s lovely, she’s clever … and she’s a witch. A real one.
Anita lives in two worlds: the modern world of supermarkets and sports cars, radio and rock & roll, where she is a thoroughly modern girl with a thoroughly modern interest in boys and fast living and her own independence. But the ancient and rustic world of traditions, cauldrons, and familiars , where she and her Granny (a witch of the Old School, broom and all) invoke elemental spirits int he service of Him Wot’s Down Under. She has senses no ordinary mortal can imagine (at least nine); with them, she can hear the voices of every creature of the night. She can changer her shape, call a drowned corpse from a lake, reverse the flow of time, and ride the Sea Serpent (there’s only the one, you know; always has been — always will be) deep into the ocean in the company of a mermaid, even though the modern world is trying to crowd aside — and even change — that world of witchcraft and magic. Yet, complicated as a young witch’s life may become, Anita never loses her sense of fun, or her essential innocence.
When the Anita stories first appeared in Science Fantasy and The Magazine of Fantasy & Science Fiction in the late 1960s, they were immediately recognized as a strikingly original departure for the author of such celebrated works as Pavane. One critic called the original 1970 collection of these stories a “treasure.” This new volume presents the stories in the author’s corrected, definitive texts, a new introduction by the author, and an additional story which did not appear in the first edition.
