Like Susan Isaacs, Rosemary Edghill cast a keenly observant, friendly, yet faintly amused eye on an intriguing American micro-culture. Like The Witches of Eastwick, the Bast novels offer a very new view of the practitioners of a very old faith. Like Alice Hoffman, Edghill allows that there's still magic in the air.

Rosemary Edghill's Bast novels are a real treat. Bell, Book, and Murder contains all three Bast novels, Speak Daggers to Her, Book of Moons, and the first softcover edition of The Bowl of Night (excerpted in USA Today).

Book Excerpts

I
 
 
FRIDAY, JUNE 15, 5:20 P.M.
 
I could say this was any large Eastern city, but you’d know it was New York. I could say my name was Isobel Gowdie, or Janet Kyteler, or even Tam Lin, but what’s on my paychecks and phone bills isn’t important. My name—my real name—is Bast.
I live in New York and I’m a Witch.
Put away your pitchforks—or more likely, here in the nineties, stifle your yawns and stop edging toward the door. It’s just my religion, into which I put about as much time and money as you do into whatever you do that isn’t for the biweekly paycheck.
