      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…

Competition - Re-released Heinlein Bundle [Closed]

Recommended Posts

To go with our new look, the lovely people at Hodderscape are offering a bundle of three books by Robert Heinlein, which are all being re-released later this month.

 

Read more about each title, and see the new covers:

Stranger in a Strange Land

Starship Troopers

The Moon is a Harsh Mistress

 

To enter, simply respond in this thread and tell me which one of the three you would choose to read first.

 

Closing date for this one is midnight June 28th 2015, and entries must be from the UK, as the publisher is sending out directly.

 

Good luck, and thank you again @hodderscape

Ooh, I'd like to enter please.  I've only recently bought Starship Troopers but have had my eye on the other two.  I'd read The Moon is a Harsh Mistress first as I've heard very good things about it.

Well, as I love the film Starship Troopers (it was one of the first blue ray discs we bought when we switched to a blue ray player - we already had it on DVD, but when you're upgrading, your favourites get upgraded first!), I'd read that one first. I never even realised it was adapted from a book till I read this thread (terrible, I know!), and now I really want to read it!

I would totally enter this but I'm not from the UK. Good luck to all who entered, though :).

I think so :smile:   The receipt says one of the items is temporarily out of stock, although there's no mention of due dates or anything like that  :shrug:
