Memoirs of the Witch Queen: 01/27/08
The third story in the February issue of Fantasy & Science Fiction Magazine is called "Memoirs of the Witch Queen." It is by Ron Goulart, a regular "ghost story contributor" to the magazine.
Paul Sanson is a ghost writer with a miserable life: allergies, debt collectors, an idiot for an editor and alimony payments. Things start to look up when he's assigned the job of spicing up the memoirs of a self described "witch queen." His allergies disappear, his debts are erased, he gets a new editor, a new girlfriend and an unexpected advance.
Thus begins a short and very funny paranormal story. Unfortunately for Sanson, he isn't the sort of fellow to "sell out." Given who he was working with, he probably should have. Let me just leave off with this bit of advice: if you're working for a witch, avoid the temptation of buying a motorcycle.
