The month of October has arrived, and the spooks are creeping out of closets and from under beds, up from dark wells and out of spidery corners under juniper bushes. The pumpkins have come to harvest, Aberforth is doing even less cleaning out of cobwebs than usual, and it’s time to talk ghoulish things at the Pub!
This year, rather than picking themes for each week, we’re opening up the entire month to all things spooky and scary. Alongside regular posts, then, which should include Travis’ upcoming review for Rowling’s The Casual Vacancy, the Blogengamot has been whispering rumors of ghost stories and dark fairy tales, sci-fi monsters and witch hunts, and talk of other things that might be caught going bump in the night. If you have suggestions, we’d love it if you leave them in the comments or send an E-Owl.
Grab your pointy black hat and your drink of choice–it’s a good season for pumpkin spirits–and let’s celebrate our Hog’s Head Halloween!
