Overview

Wild Talents is the fourth and final nonfiction book written by paranormal author Charles Fort.
Like Fort's previous works, this book deals largely with a number of anomalous phenomena, as well as his ongoing attack on scientific dogma. The book deals for the most part with trying to fit the various phenomena described into Fort's new theory of psychic and mental power - the "Wild Talents" of the title - that are detailed below.
Though not as well known as some of his other works, Wild Talents is arguably Fort's best. As did his previous book, Lo!, it deals with a wide range of phenomena. Fort's writing style and tongue-in-cheek sense of self-deprecating humor is on full display in this book, particularly in the section on his own purported psychic experiences, as well as being shorter and less "cluttered" than his previous works. As a result, the book is generally easier to read than his earlier works.

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.
