North Manchester FM: Hannah’s Bookshelf, Saturday 31 October, 2-4pm

Join me on Saturday at 2pm on North Manchester FM for the Hannah’s Bookshelf Halloween Special. And it’s going to be a very special show this Halloween, as (fingers crossed) I will be broadcasting live from the actual North Manchester FM studio for the first time this year!

On the show, I’ll be playing the shortlisted entries for this year’s 3 Minute Scares competition – and it’s a bumper batch this year – before revealing the winner of the competition – Greater Manchester’s Spookiest Wordsmith! Huge thanks to this year’s guest judge – horror writer Simon Bestwick – who had the unenviable task of deciding this year’s winner.

And big thanks to Lyall’s Bookshop in Todmorden for supplying a fantastic prize for the 3 Minute Scares competition as well. The author of the winning entry will get a brilliant horror-themed bundle of books from Lyall’s (as well as the kudos that comes with the title, of course)!

As well as this year’s 3 Minute Scares stories, I’ve also got a Halloween book review for you. I’ll be talking about The New Abject, a brand new collection of horror fiction from Comma Press.

All this, a bit of Halloween-themed music, and I may well be doing the show in fancy dress (it’s a tradition, after all)!

Catch the show 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 indeed do this week’s show in fancy dress!
