I have always been a great fan of horror and supernatural novels since I started reading them as a boy in the early fifties and over the years have amassed a large collection, mainly paperback copies and I am now replacing those available as e-books with Kindle Editions. This re-organisation has also given me the chance to revisit books that I have not read for a while and add some that I have missed.
I bought my original copy of this novel in the US in the early sixties as it was almost impossible to find anywhere in Europe under either of the titles under which it was released in the 50's and 60s. As will all Fritz Leiber novels this is highly readable and entertaining with a real sense of developing menace. Considered a classic witchcraft story with the premise the witch's covens and the practice of the art are a common 'secret society' open to all women and much more widespread than men could ever realise. It is certainly one of the best supernatural novels ever written even if a bit dated today.
The novel was made into the equally difficult to obtain 1962 movie entitled Night of the Eagle in the UK (Burn, Witch, Burn in the US) starring Peter Wyngarde and Janet Blair and later the flop remake Witches' Brew of 1980 the only redeeming feature of which was the performance of Lana Turner.
An absolute must for the horror collector.
'Conjure Wife' made me care about the two main protagonists. It is very easy to read, contains believable dialogue and very interesting situations.
This book is highly recommended.
