Upon Barden Moor – H.E. Bulstrode

An Edwardian Summer’s Day Descends into Occult Darkness.

Death was wending its way to the moor: slowly, surely, methodically. It was a day that had been many months in the planning, and the ritual, so well rehearsed, was about to be enacted. It would be a solemn end, for without that, it would be nothing; this was how it had to be.

Welcome to Yorkshire, 1949. A village schoolmaster leaves a mysterious note, and as the drama unfolds, the reader is transported back to a stifling afternoon upon the moor some forty or so years earlier, for this, it would seem, is a moment in time with which his fate has become inextricably bound.
