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!
