Episode 31: Back Along The Old Track by Sam Hicks

Back Along The Old Track

Back Along The Old Track, a folk horror tale of the English Countryside

Back Along The Old Track is a folk horror story set in rural Kent. It’s interesting to see how ghost and horror stories keep returning to the English countryside, and when we read them they can really illuminate how the social makeup of England has changed over two hundred years. Compare this story of the English countryside with Man-Sized in Marble. A hundred years apart, what has changed? And what about The Old Nurse’s Story, two hundred years before Back Along The Old Track?
