Two books slated for a 2008 release worth looking forward to: Cabinet of Wonders points out that magical designer Jim Steinmeyer will be releasing Charles Fort: The Man Who Invented the Supernatural (Amazon US and UK):
Charles Fort – whose very name spawned an adjective, Fortean, defined in the Oxford English Dictionary as ‘relating to or denoting paranormal phenomena’ – has so divided opinion that to Theodore Dreiser he was “the most fascinating literary figure since Poe; “to “The New York Times” he was “the enfant terrible of science;” and to HG Wells he was “one of the most damnable bores who ever cut scraps from out of the way newspapers.”This is the seminal biography of the 20th century’s premier chronicler of the paranormal, an inspiration to anyone seeking significance in chaos.
A great cover design to boot – unfortunately though, it’s not slated for release until May next year. Still, that’s better than Stanton Friedman’s next book, Flying Saucers and Science, which isn’t out till June. That hasn’t stopped Nick Redfern from giving a sneak preview on UFO Mystic though:
Flying Saucers and Science is a comprehensive look at the scientific data on the flying saucer phenomenon. Nuclear physicist and lecturer Stanton T. Friedman has distilled more than 40 years of research on UFOs, and shares his work on a wide variety of classified advanced nuclear and space systems. He answers a number of physics questions in layman’s terms, and establishes that travel to nearby stars is within reach without violating the laws of physics.
Both books sound great…there’s certainly an abundance of reading about – and slated for future release.
