  1. I’ve been looking forward to this and it’s here at last! Hope to read the title tale in ‘The Bloody Chamber’ though sadly won’t have time for the remaining excellent stories … 😦


  2. I just found a copy of Witch Week on my classroom bookshelf–donated, I think, by my sister. Having never read it, I figure this is a good week to do so!
