On "The Rugby Witch" by Benjamin Nugent (2691 words) ***

Benjamin Nugent's "Rugby Witch" is part fantasy and part horror, and in that sense it resembles the best sort of campfire story one hears as a kid. The main character Yuri wants to be better at rugby and at picking up girls, and the key to success lies with a witch that the best senior rugby player knows all about. Really, what he wants is courage, but courage comes at a cost. Right--you already know--not a good idea to get mixed up with a witch. Read the story here at L Magazine, and then set aside a few minutes next time you go camping to regale others with the tale.
