      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…

Is it written by a woman?

I'll go even further and say that it is an author you've read .. though not this particular book (according to GR) :)

It can't be Susan Hill because I don't have any books by her on wishlist, only TBR. And you haven't read the Robert Galbraith book. I'm clueless :D

Is it by a British author?

You are very, very, close as regards genre (for this particular book anyway.)

Is it by a British author?

Yay! :D I have to say it took some detective work, I tell you. Especially when I, for some reason, thought Waters is Canadian :D :D

 

 

I wondered what the ******** ladies did with ******* ***** at their parties. We had often rejoiced, in former days, that there was no gentleman to be attended to, and to find conversation for, at the card-parties. We had congratulated ourselves upon the snugness of the evenings; and, in our love for gentility, and distaste of mankind, we had almost persuaded ourselves that to be a man was to be 'vulgar'; so that when I found my friend and hostess, **** *******, was going to have a party in my honour, and that ******* and the **** *****s were invited, I wondered much what would be the course of the evening.

Nope! :)

:cry2:  :D

(and GR tells me you've read the book :D)

I knew it :D Am I right in thinking it's a book written in the 18th/19th century or is it more contemporary? That's too many questions so just answer the first one :blush2:
