Here are accounts of UFOs, accounts of odd animals seen at sea or on land, mysterious attacks by what appear to have been animals, mysterious appearances of things and people in places they could not be. Here Fort’s epic account of spontaneous combustion, lights in the sky, poltergeists, unseen. murderous wild animals, mysterious disappearances, manifestations of psychotic mania, speaking in tongues—and, of course, the cow that gave birth to two lambs.<br><br>All of this Fortean wonder is prefaced by a magnificent new introductory essay by Jack Womack, winner of the Philip K. Dick Award and lifetime Fortean.<br><br>This Ebook is part of the Baen Books Charles Fort Ebook Collection<br><br>At the publisher's request, this title is sold without DRM (Digital Rights Management).

Ridiculous. Science is sometimes wrong, so therefore science is utterly worthless, so therefore the world is flat. Insane ramblings from a pseudo intellectual. Skip this book and do something useful with your time.

Charles Fort did a wonderful job on this book. He questions coincidence, and embarks on a continuous quest to identify unexplained patterns in everyday happenings.
