The Witching Hour

Halloween castle by Tavaron.The season is upon us: ghoulies and ghosties and etc. We hope you have plenty of treats on hand, and a good, scary DVD in the old player. Awix says he isn't into 'modern horror', so we recommend this, or similar. Nothing like good vintage Stuff. Of course, if you want to be seriously horrified, you can watch the war film he's reviewing this week. Man's humanity to man makes the zombies look like jolly jokesters sometimes.

Speaking of Stuff, we've got lots of goodies for you. In addition to the holiday fun, suitable for enjoyment at your Halloween bash, we've got entertainment news, astronomy news, and just plain news. You'll enjoy the latest from our regular contributors.

Florida Sailor continues his popular account of a recent visit to the UK. What did he find strange and different, other than the light switches and street signs? Inquiring minds want to know.

Speaking of signs, Rod's back with one that will puzzle you. Spotted on a New Zealand street, no less. The Post roves the globe to keep you in touch with this odd planet.

Another place we go, regularly, is South Africa. This time, our artist Willem tells us about a fascinating tree in his neighbourhood. But he's also ranged further afield: that cute bunny is found in North America. It's a hardy critter, too. Bugs, eat your heart out.

Calendar watchers will not have failed to notice that November is upon us. You know what that means, h2g2ers: NAJOPOMO! Shout it loudly, journal proudly. The challenge, should you take up Create's gauntlet, is to write a journal entry every day for a month. Yes, it will tax your powers. But you know you want to do this. Your public awaits.

Have a safe and ghoulish Halloween!
