Horror Book Club (REMOTE)

We will meet on Thursday June 24th at 6:30pm and discuss Wytches by Scott Snyder. About the book: Everything you thought you knew about witches is wrong. They are much darker, and they are much more horrifying. Wytches takes the mythology of witches to a far creepier, bone-chilling place than readers have dared venture before.
