Witch Week begins!

It’s Halloween, and that means it’s the first day of Witch Week, a special time for fantasy lovers. This is a blog event I created in my first year of The Emerald City Book Review, and I’m delighted that Calmgrove and Lizzie Ross decided to take it over when I stopped.

This year, the theme is Cryptozoo, a chance to focus on monsters, fantastic beasts, and all kinds of magical creatures.

Here’s the schedule:

  • Day 1, 31st October, HalloweenWelcome to the Cryptozoo! by Lizzie Ross.
  • Day 2, 1st November, All Hallows DayOnce was, once wasn’t: an interview with author Kiyash Monsef, by Lory Widmer Hess. (Me!)
  • Day 3, 2nd November, All Souls DayEncountering the Yeti by Mallika Ramachandra.
  • Day 4, 3rd November: Discussion of Victor LaValle’s horror fantasy The Changeling.
  • Day 5, 4th November, Mischief NightThe Shadow Self: literary werewolves, by Chris Lovegrove.
  • Day 6, 5th November, Bonfire NightSlavic concepts of monstrosity and otherness by Ola Gruszczyk and Piotrek Kaplon.
  • Day 7, 6th November: Wrap-up and announcement of 2024’s theme.

Head over to Calmgrove for each day’s post. It’s going to be a magical week.
