“[Laura] Keating has established herself as a major voice in horror. I'll be looking for everything she writes."

Laura Keating's debut novella, AGONY'S LODESTONE, wraps you in its Weird, cold embrace, blending elements of Found Footage horror, fraught family drama, and a creepy-ass Canadian wilderness where time and space just won't sit still.


A grave could be visited. Ashes could be scattered. 

But simply vanishing

That ripped a hole in the world the size of a life, and through that hole sighed a terrible wind repeating a single note:


For years, Aggie had forgotten the real Joanne; the way her sister had laughed, fought, been.

But now that the videotape made her real again—no matter how many times the recording changed, no matter how terrifying the flickering images—it was all Aggie wanted. 

To trade the Gone for the One. She owed Joanne that much. To say she was sorry.

That it had been her fault.

It had been all their faults.

Cover art and interior illustrations by Trevor Henderson.


"Unexpected, enthralling, and deeply emotive…a beautiful and tense story of family dynamics, loss, perseverance and forgiveness. 

“Keating has established herself as a major voice in horror. I'll be looking for everything she writes."

  • Laurel Hightower, author of Crossroads and Below

"A harrowing tale that forces the reader to immerse themselves in carefully crafted familial dynamics, to step into murky swamps and leave soaked in the visceral atmosphere of the setting.”

  • Ai Jiang, author of Linghun

"As much a rollercoaster as it is a gut punch. Filled with dread, compelling characters, and unputdownable prose, this isn't a book to read; it's a book to devour."

  • Caitlin Marceau, author of This Is Where We Talk Things Out 

"A deliciously taut, feverishly compelling read perfect for anyone craving those surrealistically spooky Jeff VanderMeer vibes."

  • Jacquelyn Benson, author of The London Charismatics series
