Bit of a short post here, but I found these two fabulous articles. One's on legends of crossroads,  from the Devil at the crossroads to the  wonderful story of the guitarist Robert Johnson who became a guitar genius overnight. When asked he told people he'd sold his soul to the Devil in exchange for his virtuousity.  You can read the whole thing here: http://www.icysedgwick.com/crossroads-legends/

Then there's this from Unexplained Podcast.  It's a Podcast by Robert MacLean Smith about the most haunted stretch of road in the UK http://www.unexplainedpodcast.com/episodes/2017/6/19/s02-episode-5-roads-to-knowhere I have to admit this really freaked me. What do you think?

(BTW I found this on Folk Horror Revival on FB.  It's aimed at horror fans but there's some great mythological stuff here).

Have fun getting spooked, inspired  or both. you can blame me for the inspiration, but not for being unable to sleep at night.
