      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…

  1. 10th Anniversary Writing Competition As part of the celebrations we are hosting a Book Club Forum Short Story Competition. Sharpen up your pencils and have your notebooks at the ready! All entries are to be emailed to me by Tuesday 30th June [Now extended to 14th July] and I will then post them anonymously on the forum. We will then have a 2 week reading and voting period before the winner is announced. The winner will be the story that receives the most votes in the thread. As this is the 10th birthday for our forum, the theme will be "10". That's all we are giving you. From here on in, your story is your own. Rules You can enter as many times as you like. Your story should be no more than 20,000 words. Your story should contain the selected theme. Your story should be entirely your own work and you should be happy for it to be published on the forum as part of the competition. Once the winning story is announced, it is then up to you if you would like to reveal which was your entry. The competition is open to all members and mods alike and if you would like to collaborate with another member, you can, although you will have to fight it out between yourselves for the prize. The winner will be the story that receives the most votes at the end of the two week voting period and the lucky author/s will receive a Mystery Prize ( I can hear you all Ooooohing and Aaaaahing) Once a vote is cast it can not be changed, so please vote carefully! The email address to send your entries to is katrinabower2000-work@yahoo.co.uk Please let me know in this thread if you have any questions and I will do my best to answer them. Good Luck and Happy Writing!!
  2. I've recently reviewed Extinction Game by Gary Gibson, and he as kindly answered a few interview questions, which you can read here: Gary Gibson Interview. The lovely Pan Macmillan are giving away two copies of Extinction Game - to enter, simply tell me which of Gary's books you've already read, or which one you'd pick up first. All entrants will be placed in a draw, with a closing date of Sat 20th Sept at midnight. I'm afraid it's UK only, as copies are coming direct from the publisher. Good luck!
