Mary Linn Roby: When the Witch is Dead

Last in our list by Mary Linn Roby is When the Witch is Dead. Published in May 1972, it is the story of Margaret Williams who is being manipulated by a woman involved in witchcraft who is now using her daughter as a pawn. Can a handsome stranger break this curse?

Allan Kass paints a lonely house on a dune from where we see our heroine fleeing. She is typical of his other gothic heroines with long hair, big earrings, and wide belts! I like that Allan doesn't create the same haunted castle in every cover although he probably had editor standards that had to be met. I'm sure that these were easily created, yet you can see the detail he puts in each picture.
