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.

Horror Movie of the Week
GracieKat was the first co-host of Sci-Fi & Scary, Lilyn’s partner-in-crime, and sub-head of the Kali Krew. She reviews horror books, movies, and games for the site. She also does a weekly Focus on the Frightful feature, and is the site list-maker. She is also in control of the Sci-Fi & Scary podcast which will relaunch soon.
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.
Glad you’re back!
