Howdy, I'm a Texan by birth and a Nevadan an accident of fate. Retired after twenty-eight years in the USAF and now live on a horse ranch just outside of Reno, Nevada. I used to write for literotica, but decided I might as well write for myself as it was a lot more profitable....

This is a rare disappointment from the Baron, in no small part due to repetition.
This is a trio of stories, the first two involving witches, while the third involves a ghost town. The problem here is that the first two stories seem more like alternate versions of the same story. In both "Witches Brew" and "The Night of the Cobra", a boy comes home on his eighteenth birthday, which is also Halloween, discovers his mother is a witch, transforms into an animal (a wolf in the first story, a cobra in the second), becomes human again, has sex with her, and hallucinates turning into a sperm cell and fertilizing one of her eggs, recreating himself inside her (it may NOT be a hallucination, though; it's a bit hard to tell when magic is involved).
The third story, which is actually markedly different from the first two, concerns a mother and son who take a trip to a ghost town on Halloween to get into the spooky holiday spirit. Things happen between mother and son, as you'd expect in a Baron LeSade story, but they also face a threat from a violent apparition.
All of these stories are well-written, which is what brings my rating up to a 3/5 instead of a 2/5, but it's really hurt by just how similar the first two stories are. It seems like the author wrote two different versions of the first story, couldn't decide which to go with, and just decided he'd publish both. This wouldn't necessarily be a bad thing if they were advertised up front as alternate versions of one story, but considering that this is supposed to be an anthology of three stories, I personally felt a bit cheated.
