      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.

  7. Whitechapel

    I think it was a well made thriller, good acting and directing and even though I thought the ending was a a bit weak, (not so much the outcome but the climax of it), I hope they make more with the same team
  8. Hi There

    I'm mick, I live on a dilapidated (but beautiful) little farm with my animals on the East Coast. I read everything from Crime to History to Non fiction. My favourite author changes by the month. I like playing guitar, growing my own veg and at the moment I'm half way through writing a screenplay using Final Draft that may never see the light of day.
  9. Whitechapel

    I thought it was a disappointing ending. I heard Phil Davis on the radio a week back say there could be a follow up. Might have been wishful thinking on his part. I guess it could be same team different cases.
