It’s been another wonderful Witch Week here at ECBR, and I’d like to extend a giant thank you to everyone who made it possible:
- Matt Ryan and Carleton College, for being awesome and also for helping me find photos for my Tam Lin/Blackstock College post
- The Folio Society and Thomas Dunne Books, for sponsoring the Witch Week giveaway (still open through tomorrow!)
- Chris of Calmgrove, for his insightful post on the feminist classic Don’t Bet on the Prince
- Susie of Girl with Her Head in a Book, for her amazing list of Books that Take the Old to the New
- Author Kate Forsyth, for taking the time to answer questions about her books and writing process
- Everyone who participated in the Bloody Chamber Readalong
- The bloggers who linked up their own posts — see the Master Post to visit them or add your own (it’s not too late)
. . . and YOU, for your interest and support. Whether you were an old friend or a new visitor, I’m so glad you could join us.
I hope you’ll be back next year, which will center around the theme Made in America: fantasy literature that engages with the people, places and landscapes of our somewhat United States, the so-called “New World” rather than the old. This ties in with a new challenge I’m cooking up for 2016 — watch for more details soon.
I’m planning to feature Ray Bradbury’s spooky classic Something Wicked This Way Comes, set in a small Midwestern town that’s visited by the forces of evil in the form of a strange carnival. I’ve never read it, but I love Bradbury’s writing and know that this is a favorite for many.
If you have any other suggestions, or feedback about this year, please mention them in the comments. Till next Halloween, I wish you a year of magical reading!

Thanks for hosting this. I’ve enjoyed reading the posts this week and am glad I was able to participate. Next year’s theme sounds interesting! I haven’t read Something Wicked This Way Comes but have always wanted to.
Me too, so I’m excited for that.
I’m not ready for it to be over! I haven’t even done my bit yet!
It did go by awfully fast, didn’t it? But please do still join in!
I have really enjoyed this event, thank you Lory. I did actually manage to read an appropriate book; Lamp Black, Wolf Grey by Paula Brackston which featured Merlin from Arthurian legend. Sadly I still haven’t got round to writing my review of it yet.
Thanks Jessica, I look forward to your review.
Thanks, Lory, I’ve enjoyed the posts and hope I can be more active in Witch Week next year!
I hope so too…mark your calendar now! 🙂
Something wicked this way comes is in my Top 5 books of all time. Hope everyone else takes a stab at it and loves it too!
I am really excited to read it as last, and I do hope others will join in.
