WWButton2015

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:

. . . 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.

SomethingWickedI 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!

  1. 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.

  2. 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.
