A pilot reports a strange haze enveloping his plane, then disappears; eleven hours after fuel starvation, as if calling out from a void, he is heard 600 miles away. He requests permission to land, then vanishes forever. A freighter steaming over placid seas disappears without a trace. A pleasure yacht ghosts past without a soul on board. A pilot calls for help because a "weird object" is harassing his plane. A jet collides with an "unknown" and is never found. . . . Are these events real, or just a sideshow for curiosity seekers and the gullible? These are the facts: none of the cases cited above, nor any of the hundreds of others similar to them, has ever been satisfactorily explained. Though little has been written about the Bermuda Triangle in the past quarter century, the haunting questions raised by the groundbreaking books of the 1970s have never been answered. And despite the prevailing official silence, the Bermuda Triangle continues to claim victims. Indeed, over the past twenty-five years, despite the universal deployment of electronic navigation systems such as GPS and reliable, state-of-the-art communications, and despite the fact that in most cases searches have been immediately launched, more than seventy-five airplanes and more than a thousand yachts and commercial vessels, along with their passengers and crews, have disappeared for no apparent reason and with no logical explanation. Though many of these were equipped with emergency locator radiobeacons, not one such beacon was activated—just one more enduring Triangle mystery.

100 Strangest Mysteries

Were the Amityville hauntings cynical media manipulation? Is levitation possible? Has Earth been visited by UFOs from other realms? All these questions, and more, are considered in 100 Strangest Mysteries. Paranormal investigator Matt Lamy documents in detail the numerous phenomena and events which can be termed 'mysterious' and cannot be dismissed as mere hysteria or wild imaginings.

Divided into themed sections, the book includes:
  • The Beast of Bodmin — whether it is an escaped exotic pet, a feral cat or something more sinister, it certainly causes concern for inhabitants of its local area
  • Area 51 — conspiracy theorists believe it is a centre for the U.S. government's investigations into UFO activity, whilst others consider it to be 'only' a military air base
  • Ley lines and other energy fields — are they sacred sites going back thousands of years or modern New Age notions?
  • The Holy Grail — dismissed by organized religion, thought by some to have been a chalice brought to Britain by Joseph, many consider it to be nothing more than a romantic Arthurian legend

Despite being enmeshed in a culture steeped in technology and science, the magic and mysteries of the ancient world can still haunt our imagination. Through their architecture, artefacts and deeds, ancient cultures speak to us across thousands of dusty years-from the labyrinthine palace of Knossos on Crete and the lofty pyramids of Egypt to the remotest jungle temples of Peru and the megalithic mystery of Stonehenge. Hidden History brings together a fascinating selection of these ancient enigmas, arranging them into three sections: Mysterious Places, Unexplained Artefacts, and Enigmatic People.

You'll discover fascinating facts about:
  • The Great Sphinx-Mysticism and archaeology collide in the ongoing debate over this enigmatic monument.
  • Mystery Hill-Who built the intriguing megalithic complex lying 40 miles north of Boston?
  • The Antikythera Mechanism-An ancient Greek computer found beneath the Aegean Sea.
  • The Giant Hill-Figures of England-The Uffington White Horse and other huge chalk figures cut into the English countryside thousands of years ago.
  • The Queen of Sheba-Clues to the real identity of this mighty ruler famous for her Biblical visit to King Solomon
  • Newgrange-Hundreds of years older than the Giza Pyramid and Stonehenge. Who were the builders of this Irish megalithic monument?

Strange Highways: A Guidebook to American Mysteries and the Unexplained

A reviewer, 02/19/2006
A refreshing look on some of the cryptozoological and paranormal mysteries over the years as well as first hand encounters. It is 126 pages with 26 b&w photos along with various illustrations and broken down into 14 chapters. The author presents the facts as he has found them and allows you to draw your own conclusions. Of special interest to anyone with an interest in cryptozoology is the third chapter which does an in depth study of the 'Lawndale Big Bird' incident. All in all a very entertaining and informative book which could benefit from better editing but still a recommended read for all those with a interest in this area. I feel it is money well spent to have this sitting on your shelf.

Format: Trade Paper

Mysteries of Time and Space

In Mysteries of Time and Space, incredible photographs of unexplained phenomena and many eyewitness accounts relate events that are just too intriguing to ignore. Steiger goes beyond the events, however, and shows evidence that man himself is able to alter his own reality and experience, for example, insensitivity to a bed of nails and self-healing of blindness - in short, create whatever reality he believes in. Can he evolve his awareness of this creativity to include the unexplained artifacts and UFO's?
The Complete Books of Charles Fort

Title: The Complete Books of Charles Fort

Author: Charles Fort

Date Published: February 1975
Format: Paperback
From the publisher
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 that the author spent the better part of three decades documenting: flying saucers, telekinesis, sudden showers of fish from the sky, stigmata, poltergeists, and spontaneous combustion (to name a few). Fort's florid style and freakish subjects were much critiziced by his contemporaries, but he was defended and admired by an equal number of readers, including such noteworthies as Theodore Dreiser, Clarence Darrow, and Oliver Wendell Holmes. Stimulating, bewildering, and intoxicating, this intellectual tour de force is a must for lovers of science fiction as well as science facts.
