Editorial Reviews

Paul Sieveking
This latest Anomalist anthology offers a wide range of short(ish) articles to stimulate the fortean imagination...The most contentious contribution is a piece by Aeolus Kephas exploring the implications of treating anthropologist Carlos Castaneda and alien abductee Whitley Strieber as genuine witnesses of shamanic phenomena, conduits for superior intelligence...this anthology deserves a place on every fortean's bookshelf.
Peter Rogerson
Texts contain hidden secrets, and new technologies are helping to unearth them. Older texts may contain the strangest stories and the ones that require the most textual analysis to help tease out their meaning...As always in the Anomalist the good stuff far outweighs the dross, and recommended to all Forteans and explorers of the matrix of ghosts.
