      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…

Rest in Peace

It was sad to hear about Roger Rees loved watching him in Warehouse 13 as a baddie

F1 driver Jules Bianchi.

 

Bianchi was a talented driver at the start of what should have been a very promising career.  To have gone before he had a chance to show the world what he could really do is a real shame.

 

Whilst it's good that this is the first fatality in Formula One since Ayrton Senna in 1994, I wish the record could have gone on a lot longer.

My Phone.

 

14½ years it lasted, still with it's original battery. 

 

In the end it was not the battery that did it, twas the contacts inside that was its undoing . . .

 

No flowers.

The lovely George Cole, known for so many things including Minder, the original St Trinian's films and the brilliant Leeds Building Society ads has died.  sad.png

 

He was in one of my all-time favourite films too.  He played the young Ebenezer in Scrooge. RIP
