Witch Week 2017: Master Post and Linkup

…Witch Week, when there is so much magic around in the world that all sorts of peculiar things happen… —from Witch Week by Diana Wynne Jones

Welcome to the fourth annual Witch Week, an opportunity to celebrate our favorite fantasy books and authors. This year we’re focusing on the theme Dreams of Arthur, and I hope you might feel inspired to join in by linking up your own posts about books that draw on the Arthurian legend.

Or you may wish to join in the readalong of The Buried Giant; or enter a giveaway for two terrific books; or enjoy some of the other reviews and features during the week. Here’s what I have planned:

Tuesday, October 31: Rex Futurus, a guest post by Chris of Calmgrove

Wednesday, November 1: Giveaway Day – includes a US (print) and international (ebook) giveaway of The Forgotten Beasts of Eld and The Emerald Circus, courtesy of Tachyon Publications

Thursday, November 2: Laurie of Relevant Obscurity on the legend and history of the Round Table

Friday, November 3: A gallery of Arthurian art

Saturday, November 4: Katie of Doing Dewey with a nonfiction review of The Discovery of King Arthur by Geoffrey Ashe

Sunday, November 5: Readalong of The Buried Giant by Kazuo Ishiguro

Monday, November 6: Wrap-up and 2018 Announcement

Please use the linky below for your own posts; I can’t wait to see what you all have been reading! (You can also leave a comment or send an email to lory [at] emeraldcitybookreview [dot] com.)

However you participate, I hope you enjoy the week as much as I have putting it together. Let the celebration begin!

  1. Mister Linky’s not happy with my klutzy attempt at linking, so I’ll revert to the usual tried-and-tested. My review of Katsuo Ishiguro’s The Buried Giant is at https://calmgrove.wordpress.com/2017/10/14/giant/
    I’ve also scheduled a review of Terry Pratchett’s The Wee Free Men (featuring Tiffany Aching, witch) for tomorrow, Halloween, as TP was featured in March Magics.
    And finally, I’m reposting a short review of Three Arthurian Romances:
    poems from Medieval France
    to fit in with the Dreams of Arthur theme during Witch Week.

    Going a bit overboard with it all but loving it!


  2. Your link is showing up fine for me, Chris, so I’m not sure what the problem is. Leaving links in the comments works too though! Can’t wait to see your other contributions.


    1. Ah, I’d had a couple of error messages from Mr Linky which to me suggested I ought to try a different approach — hence my link, when it finally came through, appeared twice! More patience required of me, methinks.


      1. Hmmm… I’m not very up on the technology involved so I’m not sure why that should be. I’ve been able to delete the extras, anyway, and hope the right one will show up for other viewers. Onward!
