      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…

The series will keep you going nicely for a few months, Kidsmum :D

 

It's actually pretty good too to come "late" to a great series - there's none of that annoying waiting for the next one to be published.

I have Outlander  and 2 others signed by her. :readingtwo:

 

I did get tired at around the 5th book,but I have to say that Lord John has become a more favorite character of mine.

Good day all

 

I am new to this forum and was hoping there are Outlander fans on this site.

If so, please let me know as I love to talk about books, especially this one

Diana Gabaldon. Yes, there are some fans on the forum :). I have some of the books but I haven't started them yet. I did like the first couple of episodes of the TV show and I was planning on reading the books but it hasn't happened yet :blush2:. I will though! I have good faith in that I'll like them, as I know quite a few people who like them and we have somewhat similar tastes in books.

The book's called Cross Stitch in the Uk, I've found a few threads on this site discussing the series and the author.

Great books! My wife and I love them. The TV Series does a pretty good job following the story. Looking forward to the new season!

 

Diana is pretty funny. You can definitely see her personality in the stories.

I love the series to bits and I also keep an eye out for any interviews I can find of Diana Gabaldon. I think it's so cool that she had written Outlander as a "practice" but then decided to try to get it published and it became such a phenomena. If you haven't read her blog, I highly recommend it.

Has anyone read the Outlander series? My girlfriend watches it on tv and i decided to read them so i could tell her what happens. Not really the kind of thing i read as im into horror mostly but i got hooked on them and read all 8 books one after the other. Can't wait for the new book to be written. Any other Outlander fans here? (sorry if this is in wrong section)

Welcome to the forum, I think there are a few fans here!  There is probably a separate thread somewhere, but glad you like it.

I merged this thread with original threads on Diana Gabaldon / Outlander.

 

I think we have a few fans here, but I'm not sure if those people are still on the forum. I remember Pontalba really liking the series and she's not around anymore I think, but I can't remember who the other fans were exactly.

 

Nice to see you again Geordie 9! It's been a while. I hope you've been well.
