Need a quick fix on the ol' Chupacabra? Some quick info on the Jersey Devil? The low-down on those Cottington fairies? The 411 on Hanger 18? Well, Jerome Clark has been poring over this stuff for three decades, and has updated his book UNEXPLAINED! STRANGE SIGHTINGS, INCREDIBLE OCCURRENCES & PUZZLING PHYSICAL PHENOMENA, just for folks like you.
A board member and past vice-president of the J. Allen Hyneck Center for UFO Studies, Clark edited the popular monthly FATE magazine for 12 years. The first edition of UNEXPLAINED!, printed in 1994, looked carefully at such popular phenomena as Bigfoot, the Bermuda Triangle, Atlantis, the Loch Ness Monster, Men in Black, Alien Visitors, Yeti, Hollow Earth Theories, Giant Squid, Sea Monsters, and dozens of other weird subjects. This new edition includes over 100 new photos and 20 completely new entries, with updates on older entries. Many of the phenomena are described by the eyewitnesses themselves. Clark provides us a vast amount of evidence, and debunks several hoaxes. The text is scholarly and open-minded, and there are appendixes for Web sites, books, periodicals, and organizations devoted to strange phenomena. Overall, an interesting reading experience for the casually curious, and a good jumping-off point for those determined to solve the ancient riddle of Ogopgo or the Florida Skunk Ape.UNEXPLAINED! STRANGE SIGHTINGS, INCREDIBLE OCCURRENCES & PUZZLING PHYSICAL PHENOMENA, by Jerome Clark. Visible Ink, Detroit, November 1998, 636 pp., $19.95.
