Special Episode – All Hallows Read 2022

Spooky stories of devils and magic gone amiss!

We’re back just in time for the spooky season with our annual All Hallows’ Read episode! This time we’re sharing tales of magic gone wrong, with narratives about diabolical woodsmen, sorcerous battles, eerie homunculi, and more. We’ve got special guests joining us to narrate these, too, so see if you can “spot” the voices!
Please check out our Patreon page! You can help support the show for as little as a dollar a month, and get some awesome rewards at the same time. Even if you can’t give, spread the word and let others know, and maybe we can make New World Witchery even better than it is now.
