|Conjure Wife is the classic tale which explores the idea that "all women are witches." Norman Saylor is a college professor, quite unaware that career advancement depends upon magical conflict between the faculty wives- all witches. When he learns of this- being a non-believer- he makes his wife abandon this superstion... thus removing all of his (and her) protections. After he is stalked by a cement dragon, and his wife has her soul stolen, Norman is forced to believe - and do something about it.|
