Overview

Claims of supernatural realms, parallel worlds, and lost civilizations are put to the test in this well-researched guide to the unexplained. Firsthand accounts and historical documents are explored, and in-depth coverage is provided on the mysteries of imagination, culture, perception, consciousness, being, and more. Included in this collection are Richard S. Shaver's personal experience of hell—replete with demons and ghouls—modern and ancient accounts of fairyland, life on Mars, alien worlds, parallel universes, and mystery airships. Also examined are the supernatural myths surrounding Mount Shasta, which include accounts of telepathic Lemurians living on its slopes, as reported by the Los Angeles Times. More than 40 beliefs, doctrines, experiences, and places are described and explored in this truly comprehensive guide to the wacky, weird, and otherworldly.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"We are taken to Lemuria by way of Mount Shasta, to Atlantis, to cities beneath the poles, and to the subterranean world: all secret places now below the sea, under the ice or, creepily, beneath our very feet. Loads of stuff, all elegantly presented too. Buy it."— Fortean Times

"Hidden Realms, Lost Civilizations, and Beings from Other Worlds comprises a masterful exploration of the ideational and experiential underpinnings of ufology, in another must-read contribution from one of the leading scholors of the field."— Thomas E. Bullard, Ph.D. in Folklore. International UFO Reporter

"Hidden Realms, Lost Civilizations, and Beings from Other Worlds examines the intersection of myth and experience in this well-illustrated, engaging look at imaginary places that, at one time or another, seemed quite real to some people."— The Bookworm Sez

Midwest Book Review
