      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…

Anyone watching?   

 

I'm really annoyed that Sky have it now.  Channel 4 spent years building the market in this country and now Sky have priced them out of that market.  

 

Just glad that my Bears are playing in the only game in America that I will see live until the SB.

I'm an avid fan :)

 

I'm a Giants fan. I don't want to talk about it ;) I went to see the Raiders this afternoon though, and life really could be much worse. I could be a Raiders fan. Ouch, they were dreadful.

My son and mates do a draw for teams in the playoffs...he has the Falcons but his team is really the Patriots...although Gronk is out for rest of season he says....not that I would know anything about it.

Still saying Steelers vs Packers, Patriots have a soft schedule, and that may be about to expose itself against the Steelers. As an American it is strange to see how little Europeans pay attention. Over here it is like breathing.

But I suppose the same can be said for Futbol on the other side of the pond, although I do enjoy the occasion that I catch a good match

Well we have Rugby football too, which is the sort of parent game of American football, although the US version has evolved into a somewhat different tactical game...

a woman at my place of work is a big Pittsburgh Steelers fan.

Part of it is timing. I'm a big NFL fan, but it requires commitment to watch games at 1am if you have to get up at 7am for work.

 

Futbol is certainly much more popular in the US than NFL here, but a 3pm Saturday game here kicks off at 10am on the east coast - so a little easier.

 

I would like to see the Falcons progress but I suspect that is wishful thinking.

I am a big Steelers fan, have been for well over 50 years. I hope they beat the "cheating" Patriots and hopefully play the Packers in the Super Bowl. This is the best time of year for watching the NFL. :)

I love watching football, but of course I'm cursed with having a sad and disappointing home team.  The only hope I have for the Superbowl is that the Pack doesn't win!
