The Plague Stones by James Brogden

14, May – 2019

The Plague Stones book cover

Fleeing from a traumatic break-in, Londoners Paul and Tricia Feenan sell up to escape to the isolated Holiwell village where Tricia has inherited a property. Scattered throughout the settlement are centuries-old stones used during the Great Plague as boundary markers. No plague-sufferer was permitted to pass them and enter the village. The plague diminished, and the village survived unscathed, but since then each year the village trustees have insisted on an ancient ceremony to renew the village boundaries, until a misguided act by the Feenans’ son then reminds the village that there is a reason traditions have been rigidly stuck to, and that all acts of betrayal, even those committed centuries ago, have consequences…

Horror Movie of the Week

From a Whisper to a Scream movie cover
Published inUncategorized


  1. I’ve missed so much on your blog the past couple of weeks. Internet was down twice. Looks like some good horror and I love the funny. Those three are classics and I love their movies. Still watch them when I can catch them. The old movies had so much eerie atmosphere.
