The aim of these monthly posts is to give community members a chance to request postings; A story they might recall but not know the name of, or a specific arc, or even examples from a particular creator or genre.

We can't, of course, guarantee that any request will be filled, but given the combined geekitude of the community (and we mean that in the nicest possible sense) you might be surprised what can be unearthed.

Also, it's been a while since we ran a proper Theme Week, and October seems a decent time to have another one. Halloween is perhaps an obvious chance for a Horror Theme... but does anyone have any suggestions for a theme we could go for? Again, no promises, but it'd be interesting to hear your ideas.

It was Jimmy Carter who went on record as having seen a UFO, but I like to think that FDR would have shown the right spirit in the face of the strange. He had a blend of vision and conservatism that would have made sure that he trod very gently in the presence of the unknown. -- Paul Cornell

Dark Horse: "Groo’s yearlong journey is headed toward its barbaric conclusion! This issue spotlights the Minstrel, the bard who has told tales of Groo far and wide for years now . . . but even he doesn’t know how things will end as Groo ramps up the search for the long-lost father of little Kayli."

Oh noes.

The conclusion to this series is in the next post!

People are always like 'George R.R. Martin or Joss Whedon – these guys are monsters.' But it used to be when people would read fiction, characters would die all the time. I think we’ve grown up in a sort of culture where a lot of our storytelling is controlled by a big corporation – that means we can’t let these characters die, we have to keep them alive. And that’s just a terrible way for fiction to approach things. We read this stuff to prepare us for the worst things that are going to happen to us, and death is the worst. -- Brian K. Vaughan

For my first Hallowe'en post of the month, a story from the Vertigo anthology Flinch. I chose it for its mix of psychological and supernatural horror.
