Stories old and new explore women's darker side. Here are angels and devils, mothers and lovers,witches and "ordinary " women with dreadful secrets. Some tales are fantastic , others frightening, some are exciting and sexy. All will entertain each reader.

I'd picked this up from a library book sale thirteen years ago and only recently got around to reading it. I wish I'd done it earlier. This collection of stories was far more entertaining than I'd originally suspected. Usually, there are far more inferior stories than ones that stand out. This one was quite the opposite; I enjoyed nearly every one. The true stand-outs in my mind were:

Game for Motel Room - a clever story of an extra-terrestrial/human tryst.

Snow - Chilling (pun intended)

The Were-wolf - beautifully written and one of the best werewolf stories I've read

The River Styx Runs Upstream - great take on zombies who really aren't zombies

The Visit - hilariously irreverent

Love Song From the Stars - a strong feminist story that left me with a smirk

Untitled - pretty sexually explicit and unique

The Other Mother - this one kept me from sleeping and prompted the rule that I can't read horror before bed anymore

Propagation of the Faith - hardcore child S&M (but okay to read)
