It's Spooky Month!

On Roundworld, October means Hallowe'en 1 and so we wish you a spooky month! It's a perfect time to read one of Terry's books set in Uberwald - Carpe Jugulum, The Fifth Elephant, and The Amazing Maurice and his Educated Rodents. Maybe you'll get some costume or activity ideas for the Uberwald-themed Nullus Anxietas 9 in 2024? The last book might be a good one if you've not read it before, in anticipation of the upcoming film version of The Amazing Maurice which hits cinemas in January 2023.
