After reading The House at Sea’s End: A Ruth Galloway Investigation by Elly Griffiths. I was inspired to research the book that inspired her Myths and Legends of the Second World War by James Hayward.
This has had a bit of a snowball reaction in inspiring a vast variety of genre’s I wouldn’t normally choose to read (not to mention have a dabble in writing). Imagine my excitement in finding out this beautiful quaint little story in the news today – The Most Heartbreaking Abandoned Place on Earth. This truly does evoke traditional childhood horror stories of wandering souls in a time-warp returning to each day to the place the called home unaware the rest of the world has moved on. Or a story of a true love returning to this desolate place each day hoping his lover who was taken from him finally returns home. I could go on but I am sure you get the gist. The past can be the most fascinating inspiration for the future.
