    John Frederick Carden Michell was an English writer whose key sources of inspiration were Plato and Charles Fort His 1969 volume The View Over Atlantis has been described as probably the most influential book in the history of the hippy underground movement and one that had far reaching effects on the study of strange phenomena it put ley lines on the map, re enchanted the British landscape and made Glastonbury the capital of the New Age In some 40 odd titles over five decades he examined, often in pioneering style, such topics as sacred geometry, earth mysteries, geomancy, gematria, archaeoastronomy, metrology, euphonics, simulacra and sacred sites, as well as Fortean phenomena An abiding preoccupation was the Shakespeare authorship question His Who Wrote Shakespeare 1996 was reckoned by The Washington Post the best overview yet of the authorship question.

    If the truth is to be told, this book doesn t fall into my usual reads.The book was handed to me by a relative as a general interest kind of read, as something she thought I might enjoy It was interesting, I will say that, but I cannot see myself going out of my way to read it again and again or to read that many books like it.It was simply something different to pick up and read.

    Read this book back when I was 22 There s a lot of unique stories and good info on pure weirdness It was an enjoyable read and led me to research some of this stuff I had read over in the book itself.

    Although I found this book both useful and enjoyable, I want to make clear that it is not a detached, dispassionate, agenda free survey of the unexplained caveat lector It should really be entitled The Rough Guide to Forteana Co editor Rickard whose voice seems dominant selects and analyzes subject matter from the perspective of a doctrinaire Fortean that such a thing should exist seems paradoxical, but BR appears to have managed it In other words, material which can be fitted in with one of For [...]

    What a magnificent collection of weird shit From A for Abominable Snowman to Z for Ernst Zundel and his chronicles of secret Nazi Polar Expeditions this is an amazing compendium of the weird, wacky and wonderful Phantom ships, Flying Saucers, rains of fish, frogs found entombed in stone alive and most meticulously referenced Anyone with an interest in Fortean phenomena needs to have this book The perfect addition to any toilet bookshelf.This is a book that deserves to be left open and handy some [...]

    This book has short stories of unexplained phenomena hence the title For instance, is Big Foot real or simply imagined When you read this book, you ll find helpful insight into this question and I have to admit, I didn t read the whole book but the few stories I did read were quite informative and I would truly recommend this book to others I hate saying this, but it s a nice bathroom read And you know what happens after a book crosses that threshold don t share it with your friends UGH

    I didn t read everything in this book, but most of what I was interested in While the book seemed biased in certain areas to explaining things in a specific way rather than leaving it open to interpretation, it was still a great book and I learned a lot of little, unusual things that I d never heard of before Certainly a great starting point for anyone interested in the unexplained mysteries of the world.

    This is a great book to get you thinking My only disappointment was that some of the references were less than critical sources Still, overall this was eye opening and enjoyable See a complete review at Sects and Violence in the Ancient World.

    It s actually a 4.5, I ve never found such an easy to read guide of thing Fortean and beyond that s so comprehensive It s not too rough of a guide and it s a very good one to the area of unexplained phenomena, one that I find perplexing.
