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.

It is the soldier one.. it was ok, probably worth getting through for the last one. 

 

I actually liked the soldier one more than I was expecting - I knew full well what was happening, but it was also fun to see Doug Stamper from House of Cards doing a different role!

 

I really enjoyed the last one, but felt the sad part was a bit glazed over. One thing the show rarely does is relent on depressing/difficult/uncomfortable things, it makes you sit through them, but I felt the last one glazed over the impact of the big sad event. Still, very enjoyable episode!

Not seen any but I have heard a lot about this series again lately. The USS Callista episode of season 4 is supposed to be very very good

Overall I was a little disappointed, but they do tend to stay in your mind, and improve the more you consider them.. I think. USS Callister was great.. a perfect mix of everything!

I have yet to watch the new season as my partner isn't really into anything too depressing (even if it is brilliant). I must get back into cross-stitching, as that's when I get my solo watching done! I'm disappointed to hear this season hasn't been as well received.

It depends on who you ask, Noll. I've seen comments saying it's the best season yet. I think the episodes are all very subjective. One commenter might say 'x' episode is the best, and the very next commenter says the opposite.

 

Personally, I thought it was another brilliant season and well worth the wait! Already can't wait for the next season. :)

Sounds like they would not ever be able to make them fast enough for you Kylie!

I agree that USS Callister was fantastic but the rest didn't really live up to the previous seasons. 

 

The ideas behind the episodes were thought-provoking as always, but I felt like the topics weren't explored as cleverly.

I've never watched Black Mirror before, but I did watch the USS Callister episode this week.  It was clever, in a way, but I'm not sure I want to watch anymore.

I quite enjoyed the new season. I agree it probably wasn't as good as past series, but I did enjoy it. I really liked the helicopter parent episode. Watching that season also finally caught my partner's interest, and now we're rewatching all of it together. I'm so glad he's enjoying it!
