Expanding the Recap Empire by Wing

Aug 2017

I do like calling things an empire. Anyway, see the below message from Dove, and let us know if you want to join us in recapping a wider variety of nostalgic media. (Things will continue here at the Devil’s Elbow, don’t worry! Guest recappers, regular columns, my feud with R. L. Stine and love of werewolves; none of that is going anywhere.)


Hi guys

We, Wing, Raven and Dove, are planning on expanding our recap empire, and would love to gauge the interest levels – readers and contributors – on the areas below. We’re not absolutely committed or limited to these, but they were the areas that were popping up in conversation:

The Babysitters Club
Horse and Pony books (general, Saddle Club, Jill books, Pullein-Thompson, Eventing Trilogy, etc.)
Fighting Fantasy by Ian Livingstone and Steve Jackson (Choose your own adventure style books)
Enid Blyton (Famous Five, Malory Towers (old and new), Faraway Tree, Naughtiest Girl, Secret Series, Secret 7, Adventure Series, etc.)
Making Out by Katherine Applegate

For the time being, don’t worry about whether or not you have these books, just ask yourself, would I like to recap them? If the answer’s yes, then let us know.

Likewise, if you have a burning desire to recap a series not on here, and are desperate for some webspace to do just that, let us know.

Either comment or email recappers@sweetvalley.online

I am the evil twin. I'm in a feud with R.L. Stine, who is terribly prolific. Every story needs more werewolves.

    I have a few Enid Blytons (Mr Meddle, Famous Five, Faraway Tree some books with short stories about pixies and things) which could be fun to recap …
