It’s here! Witch Week, a celebration of fantasy books and authors, is an event I cooked up in my first year of blogging and it’s been going ever since, now ably hosted by Calmgrove and Lizzie Ross Writer.
This year’s theme is Polychromancy and here is the exciting lineup of posts:

Day 2: Tuesday 1st November. Chris Lovegrove reviews a tale of Roma people in eastern Europe, a novel inspired by Bram Stoker’s Dracula.
Day 3: Wednesday 2nd November. Lizzie Ross reviews some North American fantasy titles from indigenous writers.
Day 4: Thursday 3rd November. Group discussion of Zen Cho’s Black Water Sister with Daphne Lee, Jean Leek, Lory Hess, and Mallika Ramachandran, plus Lizzie and Chris.
Day 5: Friday 4th November. Mallika Ramachandran on a Persian-inspired fantasy first published in Hindi but also available in English.
Day 6: Saturday 5th November. Lizzie Ross gives a sample of works by diverse writers from North and South America.
Day 7: Sunday 6th November. Wrap-up post and 2023’s theme revealed.
I got a lot out of participating in the discussion of Black Water Sister and hope you’ll enjoy the edited version of our lengthy interactions.. Looking forward to all the posts which promise to introduce me to many diverse books and authors, always a great thing.
I wish you all a magical week.
