Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This Encyclopedia Forteana anthologizes the cult her‛s four classic works on the strange, the unexplained, and the just plain weird: The Book of the Damned, Lo!, Wild Talents, and New Lands. It features For‛s complete, unabridged text and a subject index.

Here are the four books that invented our understanding of the paranormal. These are cult hero Charles For‛s defining records of bizarre, haunting, strange, and inexplicable“fact” for which science cannot account: Frogs falling from the skies. Mysterious airships in an age before flight. Monsters. Poltergeists. Floating islands. Teleportation (a term Fort invented).

These are the works that moved novelist Theodore Dreiser to write:“To me no one in the world has suggested the underlying depths and mysteries and possibilities as has Fort. To me he is simply stupendous”

Now, For‛s classic investigations are newly collected with a preface by biographer Jim Steinmeyer. Complete with a full subject index, here is the definitive Fort anthology for our times.

Synopsis:

This work focuses on paranormal activity including UFOs, strange weather patterns, unusual inorganic materials from the sky, the strange disappearances of people under odd circumstances, and the existence of mythological creatures studied in cryptozoology.

About the Author

Born in Albany, New York, in 1874, Charles Fort made the study of unexplained phenomena his lif‛s 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.
