Synopsis

This scholarly exploration of the borderlands between science and fantasy features four complete works by the redoubtable Charle Fort (1874-1932): The Book of the Damned, Lo!, Wild Talents, and New Lands. All concern the bizarre phenomena unexplained by traditional science: flying saucers, telekinesis, sudden showers of fish from the sky, stigmata, poltergeists, and spontaneous combustion.
 

About Charles Fort

See more books from this Author
Born in Albany, New York, in 1874, Charles Fort made the study of unexplained phenomena his lifeas work. After achieving modest success as a short-story writer and novelist, Fort began his work researching anomalous phenomena in the early 1920s, tirelessly cataloguing episodes of spontaneous combustion, spaceships, poltergeists, and other experiences and events that had been written off by science. A lasting influence on the evolution of science fiction as well as on science itself, Fort remains one of the most fascinating and polarizing figures in all of Americana. He died in 1932 in New York City.
