North Manchester FM: Hannah’s Bookshelf, Saturday 29 October, 2-4pm


Listen to North Manchester FM on Saturday at 2pm for the Hannah’s Bookshelf Halloween Special. This week, I’ll be joined in the spooky studio by the fangtastic Sorcha Ní Fhlaínn. You may remember that Sorcha appeared on the show way back in January 2015… well I’ve persuaded her to come back on the show for my Halloween edition.

Sorcha is a lecturer in Contemporary American Literature and Film Studies at Manchester Metropolitan University. As well as lecturing on a wide range of books and films, Sorcha has published articles on horror and the Gothic. She is the editor of The Worlds of Back to the Future: Critical Essays on the Films (published by McFarland in 2010) and Clive Barker: Dark Imaginer (coming 2017 from Manchester University Press), and is currently working on a book entitled Postmodern Vampires: Film, Fiction and Popular Culture.

Sorcha and I will be talking about our favourite creepy subjects (of course), but we’ll also be counting down the Top 5 stories in the 3 Minute Scares competition. In the second hour of the show, we will be revealing the winner – Greater Manchester’s Spookiest Wordsmith!

Tune in on Saturday at 2pm on 106.6FM (if you’re in the North Manchester area) or listen online (if you’re further afield).

Update: I did wear fancy dress on the show this week. Not ideal for radio, obviously. So, as promised, here’s a picture to prove it…
