      Something Wicked This Way Comes...   10/09/2019

      The Autumn Supporter Giveaway!       Welcome to the very first of the seasonal BCF supporter giveaways! This month also marks one year since I took on the forum, so I want to say an extra huge thank you to all of you for keeping this place going. I have a little bit more to say about that later but, for now, let's get to the giveaway!     The Autumn Giveaway winner will be getting two Penguin Little Black Classics, The Tell-Tale Heart by Edgar Allan Poe and To Be Read At Dusk by Charles Dickens. Both of these little books contain three atmospheric short stories, perfect for autumnal evenings. The winner will also get Mary Shelley tea (a lavender and vanilla black tea) from Rosie Lea Tea's Literary Tea Collection (https://www.rosieleatea.co.uk/collections/literary-tea-collection) and a chocolate skull, to really get that spooky atmosphere .   and...   A special treat for a special month. The winner will choose one of the following recent paperback releases from the independent bookshop Big Green Bookshop:       The Wych Elm by Tana French A House of Ghosts by W.C. Ryan Melmoth by Sarah Perry The Familiars by Stacey Halls  The Dark Descent of Elizabeth Frankenstein by Kiersten White   The winner will be chosen via the usual random selection process in one week. Patreon supporters are entered automatically. If you aren't a patreon supporter but you'd like to join in with this giveaway, you can support here: https://www.patreon.com/bookclubforum.   I really hope you're all going to like this introduction to the seasonal giveaways. It's been a lot of fun to put together. Other chocolate skulls may have been harmed during the selection process…

  5. Sydney is a fantastic city. We were there for the New Year celebrations. There was a great atmosphere. We were also in Adelaide which we liked very much. Ularu was very hot with loads of flies, but cetainly worth seeing. Lastly we were in Port Douglas in Queensland. Very nice but there was a cyclone going through when we were there, so we never got to do very much (nothing actually as all trips to the reef were cancelled). Never mind we had a great holiday and once I recover I would do it all again. Plus maybe New Zealand next time:D

  6. Australia! Wonderful! Hope you had a great time - where did you get to? I'd move to Sydney tomorrow if I got the chance - it's a fantastic city.

  7. Thank you very much Renniemist. Hope you had a lovely birthday too and it's nice to see you back :D
