Comparative OSR Witchcraft

As you may or may not be aware, I'm pretty into witches. They just suit me.

Which is why I'm super jazzed to have won a free copy of the excellent Tim Brannan's B/X Witch supplement-- something I've had my eye on for a while but been too broke to shell out for.

Anyway, now that I'll finally have it, I think I'll take the opportunity to compare Witch classes from different old-school sources. Brannan's, of course, plus the one in the ACKS Player's guide, the two from early issues of Dragon (the older of which I converted for Microlite74-- I think it ended up in Supplement II or III), and maybe my still-unfinished attempt at writing one for B/X.

Are there others I should be aware of?

Edit: D'oh, I should have thought of the one over at Strange Magic right from the beginning. That one is also pretty cool... though it's possible that I owe my fondness of it to how freaking sexy the illustration is.
