happens." Real Crime Book Digest
Tackling the baffling in sections on "Mysteries," "Curiosities," and "Fables," Clark documents more than 200 phenomena in lively detail. Black-and-white photos and drawings accompany many entries, and all conclude with further-reading suggestions. Highlights include chapters covering "Hairy Bipeds," a colorful addition to the sasquatch canon, and the unveiling of the term "USO." Plus, who knew press reports of Morag of Loch Morar predated those of the much more famous Loch Ness Monster? Speaking of water beasts, "Merbeings" provides 30 pages of historical insight into everyone's favorite mythical ocean dwellers. For best results, suspend disbelief and enjoy the read. VERDICT An excellent purchase for those curious about the curious.
