Meet the Author

"Born in Albany, New York, in 1874, Charles Fort was (and arguably still is) the world's finest chronicler of all things mysterious. From his youth and practically up until the time of his death in 1932 at the age of 58, Fort was a copious collector of newspaper and magazine stories, tales and anecdotes on all aspects of what could be broadly termed 'the unexplained.' Unusual lights in the sky, strange creatures, ghosts, ghouls, and bizarre anomalies of both science and nature were daily and integral parts of Fort's life and featured heavily in his books. Today, students of the unknown throughout the world revere Fort.

I am really enjoying this author's dry wit and winding way of telling his tales. I'm especially enjoying his interjection of the experience he had as a youth when putting the wrong labels on cans, and how he says he's quite sure he knows readers will send him letters praising him of his brilliant symbolism, letters that he's quite sure will mystify him as to their meaning. I'm positive that if I had a chance I would so send such a letter. Cheeky monkey.
