      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…

I'm originally from the north east of England, just upfrom Newcastle, but I've spent most of my life in Scotland - mostly in the Aberdeen area, but a short stint in Fife too.

I'm from New Zealand. I was born in Auckland in the North Island but now live in the upper part of the South Island. Contrary to popular belief, we can't walk to Australia when the tide is out. :irked:

 

This explains why you're always on so late our time :D I thought you were just a night owl! lol :lol:

Lol Charm, I quite often miss the British/Scottish/Irish contingent altogether, because they've all gone to bed.

I'm sure I've been to Joensu? Is it North or am I getting confused. Have been to and loved Helsinki and Savonlinna.

 

Joensuu is in the East and it's quite close to Savonlinna, maybe a two hour's drive away from it to the North.

Wow that looks amazing! You have views like I do. We can see for miles in every direction - sometimes I feel like I'm living on top of the world! It's glorious in the summer, not so great in the winter lol
