Mounds & Saxons

Phil Smith – The Saxonbury Printout (New English Library, 1979)

Interested in haunted Saxon burial mounds, strange happenings in 1970's English villages, and computers going mental?

Thought so. I'd certainly recommend this one to anyone who feels aroused by the cover and description.

The only downside (as with many nasty NEL's) is that it wasn't turned into a 6-part television series starring Freddie Jones and a young Amanda Redman.


  1. I have this & thought it would make for a great Stone Tape/Children of the Stones type drama. Must give it another read/record a fake soundtrack for the tv show that could have been. Nice pick!

  2. I found this a few month back, must get around to reading it,
