      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…

52 and a half (almost) - yes it's a shock when you go up an age bracket on those forms isn't it!  Or can no longer use your age as a lottery number, however now that the UK Lottery has increased the top number to 59 (from 49) that's not an issue at the moment!

I probably answered the poll years and years ago, so I should post an update and say that I'm....38. :o I don't think I'll ever feel my age, though.

yep ticking those age boxes really brings it home or, as one of my friends said to her father, not being able to use your age any more when choosing lottery numbers (although you've a way to go yet, especially now they've increased it to 59!).

 

Happy 40th!

I never thought of that lottery thing - I normally get lucky dips anyway and don't have regular numbers.

 

I filled this in 10 years ago like a lot of us when I was 42, which makes me 52 now (and 3/4).

I was 21 when I first posted, 28 when I lasted posted, and now I'm 30. I have completed the full span of my chosen bracket, and in november will move onto a new new bracket :o

I'm older than I was the last time I posted in this thread.

Looks like I’m now one of your oldest at 71, pushing 72.

I’m a serial entrepreneur and when I was 65, I created a watch manufacturing company selling to the British Army. (as I’m not yet allowed to add URLs, just Google ‘Col and MacArthur’)

As a hobby-writer, I’ve had dozens of unpublished manuscripts gathering dust in the attic for years and because of it, I sold my shares recently in order to become a full-time author.  I’m now working on my first serious piece which includes 6 years of research related to the Battle of Waterloo.

 

However, as time is running out, it must be a success soon because I then intend moving on to music.   Lol…, and after that; well, who knows ?
