Circles of Stone  - Weird Tales of Pagan Sites and Ancient Rites

 

There was no sleep for him that night; he fancied he had seen the stone – which, as you know, was a couple of fields away – as large as life, as if it were on watch outside his window.

The standing stones, stone circles, dolmens and burial sites of the British Isles still resonate with mystery of their primeval origins, enthralling our collective consciousness to this day. Rising up in the field of weird fiction, ancient stones and the rituals and dark forces they once witnessed have inspired a wicked branch of the genre by writers devoted to their eerie potential.

Gathered in tribute to these relics of a lost age – and their pagan legacy of blood – are fifteen stories of haunted henges, Druidic vengeance and solid rock alive with bloodlust, by authors including Algernon Blackwood, Lisa Tuttle, Arthur Machen and Nigel Kneale.

 

Why We Recommend this Book

Excellent for those creating stories with Druidic themes - The prose in each story is evocative, capturing the mystique and foreboding atmosphere that envelops these ancient sites. You will find yourself transported to a bygone era where the boundaries between the natural and the supernatural blur, leaving you captivated by the sinister forces that seem to linger within the stones. Reader, prepare to be wildly inspired!
