Legend has It: Le Loyon

          This month’s urban legend post brings us back across the pond to Switzerland. I struggled with categorizing the topic of this post – Le Loyon (also known as the Ghost of Maules) could conceivably be an extraterrestrial or interdimensional being, a cryptid, a spirit, or something else unknown. I’m going with Le Loyon being an […]

Creepy Cryptids: The Mongolian Death Worm

          This month’s cryptid is a historical one – writings of it date back to the 1920s, and though it lives on in infamy to today, I don’t think it’s one of the more well-known cryptids out there. Today we’ll be examining the origins and various run-ins with the so-called Mongolian Death Worm. Let’s explore. Origins […]

The Extraterrestrial: Aurora Burial

          In the weirdosphere we often discuss alien sightings and crashes. What doesn’t necessarily come up is the aftermath. At least, we do not normally have the details for what happens after.
