From the Foreword:
WEIRDE SISTER is rooted In my troubled thinking on the subject of witches, witchcraft, witch persecutions, and whether Hell is really as hot as they say. The book is both heavily researched and heavily made-up. Its plot points and characters are based on historical beliefs and narratives dating to the European witch persecutions, which unfolded over three centuries and claimed an estimated 50,000 lives—a world-historical tragedy of which the Salem Witch Trials are but a late and geographically remote aftershock.
