      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…

Hello

Hello everyone, I'm Clyne. I came across this site and I find it interesting. I've been reading books since I was in Highschool. Not sure if I have a weird taste but I like novels written by Haruki Murakami and poems written by Charles Bukowski. Glad I found this community.

Welcome here :)! I've read a short story by Haruki Murakami (I think it was called Scherazade) but I do intend to read more of his works some time. I hope you like this place :).

Hi, welcome to the forum! :) I’m sure you will find other fans of Murakami and Bukowski here. I’m pretty sure I read some of Charles Bukowski’s poems at university but I can’t remember which ones!

I think that's one of the short stories from his Men Without Women book. 

 

 

Anyway, thank you for the warm welcome.

Several people on BCF, including me, read it for free through New Yorker Magazine in 2014. It's good to know what book it came from, though :).
